Cincinnati Food and Wine Classic is partnering with the Western & Southern Open to produce the 2016 Somm Slam Prequel. Guests can test their wine knowledge and palate against nine master sommeliers as they compete in a blind tasting.
The sommeliers will vie for four spots available at the wine event’s Somm Slam Final, at which last year’s winner, Lindsay Furia of Boca Restaurant, will defend her title. This is the semifinal round for the main event. The finals will take place at the Cincinnati Food and Wine Classic on Sept. 25.
Tickets for the Prequel are $40.
