Somm Madness brings together the nation's wine and sommelier community along with those passionate about wine for a blind tasting tournament unlike any other. Sixty-four individuals will go head-to-head to advance to the championship round with the ultimate hope of taking home the grand prize: $10,000 cash.
Starting at 4 p.m., join the Tailgate Tasting, a pre-party to the main event. Ticketholders will have access to over 200 wines in a walk-around tasting as well as a grand display of endless bites provided by Prime & Provisions. Wineries include some of the most iconic names in the world.
At 6 p.m., the madness begins. All ticketholders are able to watch the tournament should they choose.
A portion of proceeds will benefit the James Beard Foundation's Impact Programs.
