Boston’s beloved event Wine Riot is as wild as it sounds, but nearly as intense. This wonderfully connective event offers patrons full access to hundreds of delicious and new wines. Taking an aggressive approach to the concept of wine tasting, the riot offers an incredible opportunity for attendees to taste a wide variety of wine from all around the world. With experts present at booths throughout the venue, this event is as much about education as it is abut consumption.
Wine Riot boasts a collection of up to 250 wines from all the different regions of the world. Whoever is pouring each glass holds the knowledge of where it came from, what its traits and strengths are and anything else that the common pallet cannot verbally translate.
With so much to gain and experience, the riot can be a little overwhelming in terms of decision-making. Luckily, the Wine Riot website has offered a simple four step guide on How to Riot. The basic rundown of this guide suggests attendees grab their glass, begin with a theme [i.e. type of wine or country of origin] and then ask for help from some of the many wine experts, remember what they drink and like it on the Wine Riot mobile app and ultimately have a great time.
Obviously something as off the wall as Wine Riot cant last for only one night, so the festival will go for three nights straight. Beginning the night Friday, October 24th, Wine Riot will go on to have two, four-hour tastings on Saturday, October 25th. The riot will take place at the illustrious Park Plaza Castle in Boston. For those who have always had interest in learning more about wine, but not had the time or the investment to do so, here’s an opportunity to grow and enjoy a whole lot in a short period of time. There’ll be no better time to drink this fall than the Wine Riot.
