On November 5th, friends of BrandTrip Partners gathered at BK Cellars Urban Winery in Escondido, California for an evening featuring red wine and red attire.
The highlight of the evening was a blind wine tasting contest. Participants tasted four red wine pairings from masked bottles, read descriptions of each wine in the pairing and then were required to guess which wine was which. The person who matched the most wines correct would receive a full case of any BK Cellars wine to take home while second place could choose three and third place was able to select one.
No entrant into the contest guessed all correctly, but four guests did guess six out of eight wines. To break the tie, the guessing game continued with a challenge to determine how many M&M’s were in a sealed jar.
Congratulations to Sharon Simmonds from Horizon Food Group as she was the most skilled oenophile and M&M guesser of the evening. She took home a full case of BK Cellars wine of her choice. Jeff Schroeder, of Jack In The Box and Coffee Bean & Tea fame, got particularly lucky as he placed second and his wife Ruth placed third netting them four bottles of the limited production vino.
