The 2012 London Olympics start the end of this week, and as we’ve done in the past with other major sports events like the World Cup of Soccer and the Tour de France, we thought this time, it would be fun to do a tasting of ‘Olympic’ proportions.

So, on Thursday, August 2 at 7pm, at a week into the Summer Games, we will be doing a stand-up competitive tasting featuring seven red wines in the $25-$30 range from seven participating wine producing countries. The participating countries will be based on the availability of wines from the top medalling countries as of the Monday of the week of the event. Registered attendee’s are encouraged to come in their favourite countries flag colors.

At the end of the night, the participants will be the judges as we do a quick show of hands to award gold, silver and bronze medals to the wines tasted. The final lineup of wines will be revealed the week of the event on our website.
