The event is designed to compare and rate homemade to commercially produced wines.   Participants will be asked to savor and judge both categories of wines.  At the end of the evening participants will be provided with the score each wine receives.  More interestingly, the commercially category will be compared against the homemade wines.  The event is designed to educate participants about wine; cost and quality don't always go hand in hand in the industry.  Come and enjoy a fun filled evening full of good eats and the wine tasting contest.
