Blásta Wine Tasting
The 7th annual 'Blásta' Wine Tasting is NOT just another wine tasting. It's a fine selection of wines for regular folks in a casual, arrive-when-you-like-setting.
A self-paced event, Blásta (pronounced BLAW-sta) Tasting aims to introduce regular folks to great-yet-affordable wines while raising funds for CelticFest Mississippi.
An array of whites, reds, and rosés will be available at several different "stations" and staffed by a wine expert. Participants can meander from station to station, sampling and learning about the wines. Scorecards are provided so that participants can keep track of their favorites. Fenian's caters a number of hors d' oeuvres will also be available to cleanse the palette.
The Blásta tasting is intended to introduce the newbie and seasoned connoisseur alike to great, inexpensive wines. Participants also get to keep their glass, a break-resistant titanium crystal glass from Schott Zwiesel (a $12 value)!
Tickets are $25 with advance online purchase (available here), or $35 at the door. CHS members enjoy the $25 rate at the door. The venue is Fenian's Irish Pub on the corner of Jefferson and Fortification Streets. This is a smoke free event!!
The Blásta Wine Tasting is a benefit event, with all funds to support the 22nd Annual CelticFest Mississippi, which runs Sept. 6-8, 2013 at the Mississippi Agricultural and Forestry Museum.
