A Wine Tasting Success
February 11, 2015 § Leave a comment
Metropolis’ 2015 Wine Tasting was a huge success, with the event well exceeding expectations and selling out with over 200 attendees! We have to thank Tuscan Market and Wine Shop and their wine distributors for their support. Attendees enjoyed a wide array of wines from six different distributors including Glunz Family, 90+ Cellars, Pinnacle, Southern, Heritage and Wirtz. Everyone walked away with their complimentary Metropolis wine tasting Napa style wine glass. In addition to the sampling of delicious wines there were hors d’ouevres with plenty of crackers and cheese to cleanse palettes and a tasty treat generously provided by Nothing Bundt Cakes. Attendees also enjoyed a raffle, participated in spinning our wheel of wine for raffle prizes, and had their taste buds tested in our “So you think you know wine?” game. The winners of this particular game won the coveted golden wine snob award and our grand prize raffle winner walked away with a bottle of Chateaux Letour valued at $1,600. We are so proud of our wonderful school of the performing arts students who volunteered to perform, Nathan Vartivarian on guitar and Cameron Obrecht are featured in the pictures below. Thank you to everyone who attended and we hope to see you again next year for what we hope to be a popular annual event. We think it’s the prefect opportunity to get everyone out to enjoy some wine in the dreariest part of our Chicago winters. We can’t wait for next year, sure to be even bigger and better!
