Fleming’s ‘Bottle Wars’—Wine Tasting Smack-Downs
Tuesday, September 04, 2012
As part of its annual "Month of Discovery," Fleming’s is rolling out this series of four unique wine tastings, matching up vintages from its well-known "Fleming's 100" collection. On a series of Friday evenings in September (7th, 14th, 21st and 28th), guests will taste premium wines from rival regions and wineries around the world in a spirit of friendly competition. Each event will offer 8 to 10 well-matched wines for just $25 and Fleming's professionally trained wine managers will guide guests through the experience.

The Fleming's 100
Fleming's proprietary collection of 100 wines by the glass is a unique approach to discovering and celebrating wine without having to order an entire bottle. "Wine is an intensely personal choice, and wine by the glass is the perfect way to celebrate it," says Maeve Pesquera, Fleming's Director of Wine. The new collection for 2012/2013 features many iconic wineries from California as well as top-rated European wineries. The international roster also includes a number of remarkable wines from Chile, Argentina, Australia, New Zealand and South Africa.
