Once every four years (this will be the fourth time for deVine’s) we host this special tasting right in the middle of the world’s most famous soccer tournament, the FIFA World Cup of Soccer – we’ll be tasting wines from seven of the participating countries from favorites Germany to France, Argentina, Euro champs Portugal, Australia and Spain. As for the hosts Russia, we’ll cheat and serve a wine from Georgia, their former republic. Join us for this event scheduled for Saturday, June 23rd at 7pm – $35, right smack in the middle of group play.

Most of the participating countries would have played two games in the opening group stage by then, so there’ll be some conversation to be had about how your favourite team is doing. What a hoot it was last time, with participants wearing their favourite team jerseys, caps or dressed in flag colors and talking more soccer than wine!

This is a social rather than technical tasting, and football talk will be referee’d strictly and perhaps one of the attendees will lead us in a chant or song… This is a stand-up event, and a not to be missed party on a scale befitting the sport. Now, that’s quite the lineup!

Please register for the event here..
