Wine Riot returns to Boston on Friday, April 20, 2012 and Saturday, April 21, 2012. You will find this year's event at the Park Plaza Castle at 50 Arlington Street in Boston. Opening night is Friday, April 20 from 7 p.m. to 11 p.m. They do it all again on Saturday for 2 sessions. Riot 1 from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. and then Riot 2 from 7 p.m. to 11 p.m. The Wine Riot was created to provide a fun, non-intimidating place where people from all walks of life can come and learn about wine.
You will have offerings from 103 awesome wineries with samples of hundreds of new wines. With two parts education and one part revolution, Wine Riot has reinvented "wine tasting" for the thirsty and curious. Grab a glass, hit the floor, and have fun! Travel the world of wine all under one roof and tackle things you've never tried before. There will be interactive booths and crash courses loaded with tips and tricks for exploring the wine world. There will also be a DJ, photo booth, temporary tattoos, and a few thousand of your closest wine friends. The best part is, they made an app that tracks your favorite wines and shows you where to buy them later. The wine app is a great idea, because you will likely forget all of your favorites the next day. Now you have captured them all on your iPhone.
You can buy tickets to the event on the Wine Riot website. Have fun, enjoy all the wine and occasionally spit!
