Dates set for Wine Spectator Grand Tour 2017

Wednesday, February 1, 2017

Wine Spectator Grand Tour 2017 dates and locations have been announced. They are:
  • Las Vegas May 6, 2017 (a Saturday)
  • Chicago May 9, 2017 (a Tuesday)
  • Miami May 12, 2017 (a Friday)
These events are high end walk-around tastings of 200+ wines rated 90+ by Wine Spectator along with a light buffet. Early bird tickets cost $225.

Las Vegas and Chicago are common locations for these events. I like the inclusion of Miami as [I believe] a new venue for us east coasters. Along with the New York Wine Experience each fall this presents a well balanced set of options for these tastings.

Is it worth it?

$225 is indeed a big chunk of change for a wine tasting. But like I've said before these events provide an efficient and enjoyable way to develop a relatable frame of reference for many of the world's great wines.

Here are reviews of past Wine Spectator Grand Tours:
I didn't make it to a 2016  Grand Tour event (they were in New York, DC, and Vegas but somehow didn't rise to the top of my priority stack). I couldn't help but check flights for the event in Miami. Lots of options for an out and back from Boston on AA. We'll see!

Are you planning to go to one of these events? Ping me on Twitter @RobertDwyer or drop me an email if so or if you've got questions about past events I might be able to help with.
