WineGame Debuts at Heart’s Delight May 12
Play a Red Hot 'n Delightful WineGame with Founder Rob Wilder and Somm Felicia Colbert
Wine is touted to be good for the ticker, and this May that’s especially true as the Heart’s Delight Wine Tasting and Auction, a four-day extravaganza featuring chefs and vintners from around the globe, lights up the DC food and wine scene. Held annually over the last 18 years, the event has raised over $16.5 million benefitting the American Heart Association.
This year, WineGame will be upping the pulse: Heart’s Delight guests will have the opportunity to be part of a debut WineGame on Saturday May 12, prior to the Grand Tasting. WineGame founder Rob Wilder and super Somm Felicia Colbert, Wine Director at A Rake’s Progress and The Line Hotel, will lead a blind-tasting of world class wines while guests play WineGame along on their phone, answering fun multiple choice questions. Yep that’s right, mobiles not just encouraged, but mandatory.
Expect a raucous game with a competitive leader board and prizes, as Felicia pours and tells tales about the wines she loves, wines she believes have the ability to transport people and create community. Rob will share his wild ride as founder of ThinkFoodGroup’s award-winning restaurants with partner Jose Andres, and the late night wine tastings that lead them to imagine WineGame.
