Second Annual People’s Choice Blind Tasting and Awards:
This year’s event will be held at the newly renovated Leoness Cellars, whose restaurant was recently named “America’s Best Winery Restaurant” by USA Today’s 10 Best Readers’ Choice for the second year in a row.
New for this year’s event will be a seated, guided tasting seminar for Grand Reserve pass holders led by Master of Wine Roger Bohmrich, who will also speak at the awards dinner.
The day-long People’s Choice event will kick off with a mid-morning walk-around blind tasting of the wines Temecula Valley wineries believe to be their “best” bottles. Participants will be asked to submit ratings of each wine, which will be tallied and used exclusively to determine the region’s top three wines overall. Results of the blind tasting will be announced at a wine dinner and awards celebration the same evening, recognizing the winning wines and featuring a five-course tasting menu with local wine pairings.
Tickets to the event are available in three tiers:
- Estate Pass – $40: Entrance to the walk-around blind tasting, light appetizers and commemorative wine glass.
- Reserve Pass – $175: Entrance to the walk-around blind tasting and a seat at the People’s Choice awards dinner, including 5-course tasting menu and wine pairings.
- Grand Reserve Pass – $225: The ultimate wine-lovers package, including a Temecula Valley wine seminar and seated/guided blind tasting led by Master of Wine Roger Bohmrich, followed by an intimate winemaker reception including open wine bar and gourmet passed hors d’oeuvres, as well as a seat at the People’s Choice awards dinner. Grand Reserve Pass holders will also receive a VIP gift bag and are welcome to attend the walk-around tasting.
