Midwest Wine Expo 2011
This year's seminars are awesome. First up is a food and wine pairing featuring the food of several local restaurants, each dish paired with two wines. Then we'll have a master blending class where you can taste sangiovese from different parcels within Chianti. Later in the afternoon is a side-by-side comparison of European and American beer styles, including discussion on ingredients, process, and on and on. Tickets for these seminars always go fast, and they're first come, first served and only available the day of the event, so arrive early to ensure your seat. New to the Expo this year is a Blind Tasting Contest. Trust me, blind tasting is one of the most intimidating experiences imagineable for any beverage professional. Don't miss this opportunity to test your expertise. Plus, we have some sweet prizes lined up for those who can the figure out the most details in the blind tasting. My one piece of advice: don't overthink it. Click the image below and browse the tabs on the MWE event page to see the massive list of wineries represented, the participating restaurants, and to save by purchasing your tickets in advance. I hope to see you there.
