I have been playing a wine game with restaurant sommeliers and wine nerds across town and beyond where I show up with a mystery bottle and ask them to review it blind. By not knowing what the wine is or who represents it, hopefully, an honest-no-bs-review is achieved.

Come inside and read the review of our next contestant…
