This is not your parent’s wine tasting!
Featuring over 250 wines, the Riot! is designed for you to mix and mingle with wine experts representing virtually every wine region of the world. Wine Riot!’s will expand your wine knowledge through a printed wine guide, mobile technology, free mini-seminars, and forty fantastic exhibitors.
Free Crash Courses will be hosted by sponsors throughout the Riot! sessions, dishing in-depth knowledge about specific grapes, regions, and growing trends. Friday night hit up "Champagne 411" hosted by Bertil Jean-Chronberg of The Beehive, and Saturday we've got an array of courses, including "Spain: The Worst Kept Secret of the Wine World" and "Is That a Magnum, or are you Just Happy to See Me?" Stop in for some complimentary guided tastings and head back to the main floor equipped with some stellar tips and know-how that will help you stand up to any wine list you meet.
Drinking all that wine is hard work, so we've got some partnerships to keep Rioters nourished and hydrated! Tasty food pairings will be served throughout the Riot! Sessions from Sel de la Terre, Ronnarong Thai Tapas Bar, The Savant Project, and Garden at the Cellar. Ogo water will also be at the Riot! offering both sparkling and still water to thirsty Rioters.
