We'll be getting into the holidays soon and I have to tell you about Wine Battles, its a club for the connoisseur and non- connoisseur of wines. Years ago if anyone would have asked me about wine, I would have told them ask someone else. I am a beer drinker. I still am. I was arrogant to think wine was for sissies--- was I wrong. I am a big Merlot drinker and I did not know what a Merlot was. I say all of this to tell you about, Wine Battles.
Wine Battles is the world’s largest (and most fun) wine competition! Battles consist of four (Final Four) or two (Finals) wines with only one emerging as Battle Champion. Members buy open, decant and rate two wines—the scores come in real time and members are encouraged to share their findings. The wines compete in a peer to peer bracketed competition, similar to World Cup Soccer or March Madness, until one emerges victorious. Scoring and choosing the correct wines improves members’ relative ranking on the website where they compete for awards.
