Three Blind Wines is a wine tasting event presented by the Yoknapatawpha Arts Council and the Rotary Club of Oxford. It is a wine tasting with a twist!
New this Year!
Bring any wine you'd like - red, white, chocolate!
How it Works
The Yoknapatawpha Arts Council and Rotary have created a blind wine tasting where teams compete placing their favorite wine up against other team's favorite wines. Teams of two people select three bottles of the same wine to represent their team at the event. Two of every team's bottles of wine are set out for the tasting with the labels covered, and the third bottle of wine is reserved as part of the prize for the winner.
Everyone then samples all the wines, voting for their favorite wine of the night. The team that receives the most votes wins all the other team's third bottle. Winners could go home with a cellar full of free wine!
First, Buy a Ticket
Team Tickets - $35
It's $35 per team (2 people each) and you drop off your 3 bottles of wine in advance or purchase and leave them at one of the participating stores.

Second, Buy Your Wine
