Family Centre To Host Blind Wine Tasting

April 6, 2018

Family Centre’s upcoming Blind Wine Tasting event will take place on Friday, April 27th at 6:30pm at the Bermuda Aquarium & Zoo in the main Aquarium Hall.

A spokesperson said, “For over 25 years, Family Centre has been strengthening families in crisis and helping to break the negative cycles of abuse and neglect that plague so many Bermuda families. The funds raised through our Special Events, like the Blind Wine Tasting, are critical in allowing us to continue running our vital programs and services each year.

“This one of a kind fundraiser brings together wine novices and connoisseurs alike. Guests will mix and mingle as they swirl, sniff and sip nine wines expertly selected by Burrows Lightbourn, Two Rock Wine Company and Gosling’s, all sponsors of the event along with Mr. Price Lowenstein and The Argo Foundation.

“Each guest will receive a score card at the start of the night which they can fill out as they sample the various wines. Those who wish to test their wine knowledge will guess the country, varietal, vintage and price point of each wine and there will be a fabulous prize awarded to the person with the highest score!

“The Aquarium sets the perfect tone for the event as guests can peruse the various underwater wonderlands throughout the evening. Heavy hors d’oeuvres will ensure that no one leaves hungry and MC and Auctioneer, Karen Plianthos, of Bermuda Wine Concierge will be on hand to guide guests through the evening and enthusiastically auction off a variety of high-end wine related items.

“Wine representatives from each distributor will announce the correct wines at the end of the night.”

Tickets are limited and available now. For more information, contact 232-1116 or email
