Wine Barn Steps Up for #Cabernet Day

The Wine Barn, an Orlando-based wine retailer, will be hosting a vertical tasting of six (6) vintages of Joseph Phelps Winery’s flagship - Insignia -- as well as two vintages of Phelps’ Backus Cabernet Sauvignon for #Cabernet Day – Thursday, September 2, 2010, 6:00pm until….

Wine Barn will be opening the 2000, 2001, 2002, 2004, 2005, and 2006 vintages of Insignia and the 2004 and 2005 Backus Cabernets.

Wine Barn’s own Chef Ian Russell will be plating up plenty of Jamon, cheeses, and charcuterie.

This tasting will be limited to 18 participants (first come, first served), with a tariff of $45.00/person.


The Wine Barn is encouraging the lucky participants to also bring a GREAT bottle of Cabernet Sauvignon from their home cellar to enter into a #CABERNET DAY THROWDOWN. The wines will be tasted blind and then the tasters will rank their top three (3) wines. The participant who brings the top-ranked wine will be awarded a bottle of the 2005 Joseph Phelps Insignia.

With hosting a Shafer Hillside Select vertical and now with the Wine Barn stepping up to the plate with the Insignia/Backus tasting, what other events may we expect from other local establishments and retailers? Come on Orlando!
