This exciting series of four tasting events brings out the best in rival wines from the new Fleming's 100 in a spirited atmosphere, with competitive wines, fascinating wine lore provided by our local Wine Managers and a selection of delicious appetizers provided by the Fleming's chefs.
Each of our four events features a different theme with 8 to 10 wines in competition. Choose one or take in the whole series! Every wine you taste will be a winner, but only you can decide your favorites.
A DIFFERENT TASTING EVERY FRIDAY NIGHT FROM 5:30 TO 7 PM $25 PER GUEST* — CALL YOUR LOCAL FLEMING'S TO RESERVE
"Pinot Smackdown" — Friday, Sept. 7th View competing wines Pinot Noir rose to fame with the 2004 movie Sideways and has continued to grow in popularity. Now that Pinot Noir is being made in other cool-climate regions, are the Central Coast wines that Miles tasted on his road trip still the best? We'll be tasting four Pinot Noirs from the Central Coast against four from other cool-climate regions bordering the Pacific: Sonoma Coast, Anderson Valley, Oregon and New Zealand.
"Battle of the Hemispheres" — Friday, Sept. 14th View competing wines Are wines from the northern and southern hemispheres mirror images? Does absolute latitude matter more than which half of the globe a wine comes from? We'll put this theory to the test with wines made of the same varietal and very similar blends from the deep south and California. Prepare to adjust your latitude!
"Old World vs. New World" — Friday, Sept. 21st View competing wines How much does experience count? Europeans have a long heritage as grape growers and masters of terroir. But not every French or Italian estate dates back hundreds of years, and U.S. wineries have quite a history as well. Maybe Old World and New World aren't so different in a global world. We'll find out as we taste great wines from both.
"Glass Warfare" Blind Tasting — Friday, Sept. 28th View competing wines What makes one wine twice as expensive as another? And is it twice as good? There are many factors that contribute to price: the cost of vineyard real estate, vine yields, imported oak barrels and winery equipment, famous winemakers and consultants....At this event, we'll blind-taste five of the best wine values from the Fleming's 100 against five premium wines that cost twice as much. Will you taste the difference?
