Event Details

​We all know the world's most expensive wines: Bordeaux, Burgundy, California Chardonnay, Napa Cabernet, and Champagne. But what about wines that have the same flavor profile and quality—but cost one-half the price? Join NYC sommelier extraordinaire, Michael Madrigale, as he walks (and tastes) you through side-by-side tastings of 5 pairs of wines that will have you challenging your assumptions.
