Boston's Wine Riot hosted by Second Glass is being held this weekend, April 24-25th, at the Castle at the Park Plaza Hotel. What is Second Glass you ask? Well, Second Glass helps people discover new wines, remember what they drink and share that info with their friends by bringing wineries and wine drinkers together through technology and in-person events. Second Glass develops online and mobile tools for both wine consumers and wine producers, creates a plethora of editorial content and hosts Wine Riot, a huge, innovative and interactive wine event in six cities across the US, all with the goal of getting people to drink more wine.
Want to know more about the Wine Riot? This event is your all access pass to hundreds of new wines. With two parts education and one part revolution, Wine Riot has reinvented "wine tasting" for the thirsty and curious. Grab a glass and hit the floor; you've got 250 wines from across the globe to sip on. Travel the world of wine all under one roof and tackle things you've never tried before.
In addition to all of that, they've rallied up a team of die-hard experts to bring you some expert knowledge: interactive booths and crash courses loaded with tips and tricks for conquering the wine world. Fueling your night of discovering new grape varieties and many blended wines is a tireless DJ, photo booth, temporary tattoos, and a few thousand of your closest friends. The best part of the event is the app that Second Glass developed to track your favorite wines and then shows you where to buy them later, arming you with all the tools needed for total wine domination.
Quite the event! And I'm sad to say it is already sold out (I got my tickets a few months ago though, so I'm in)! However, if you're looking for a way in, Second Glass is giving away pairs of tickets over the course of this week. You can join their waitlist or participate in the following:
