Raven Landing Presents: The 3rd Annual Judgement of Fairbanks Wine Dinner

It’s July 4th, 1976. In the wine world, France is the undisputed king, making wines of incomparable taste and quality… or so the world thinks. Wine merchant Stephen Spurrier invites some of France’s top wine authorities to a blind tasting, where they will evaluate wines from upstart wine producer California as well as France. No one expects California to win. 

However, in a stunning upset, both the top red and the top white spot are taken by not by French, but by Californian wines. With a single tasting, the world of wine is forever changed. 

To honor of the 1976 Judgement of Paris, join your host Bruce Abbott, CSW, as we pit French and American wines against each other in a blind tasting event. Guests will score each wine blind, with the identity and origin of each wine only revealed after the scores are counted. Will French or American wines come out on top? Help decide at this premier wine event, featuring ten phenomenal wines along with small plates inspired by French and American cuisine prepared by chef Slava Martynets.

Attendees must be 21 or over. Ticket sales end on the evening of Tuesday, January 29th.
