More Forgotten Grapes Coming to D.C. Area

What do Helen Mirren, Beyonce, Joey from “Friends”, Knott’s Berry Farm, and Major League Baseball have to do with wine? DC-area wine lovers will have two opportunities to taste for themselves as America’s Uncommon Wine Expert and Founder of CHRIS KERN present two nights of “Getting Friendly with Forgotten Grapes: An Evening of Uncommon Wine Tasting” on Tuesday, March 1st at 6:30pm at Open City DC in Washington DC, and again on Thursday, March 3rd at 6:30pm at Twisted Vines Bottleshop & Bistro in Arlington, VA.

Chris Kern, America ’s Uncommon Wine Expert is returning to the nation’s capital, and he’s bringing five all-new Forgotten Grape wines with him for you to taste. You’ll sample these uncommon and lesser-known wine varietals while Chris introduces you to each wine and its pop culture doppelganger through songs, jokes, skits, costumes, and interactive games. It’s unlike any other wine tasting you’ve ever attended. It’s irreverent, it’s off-the-wall, it’s unpredictable, it’s “Getting Friendly with Forgotten Grapes”.

Admission at both events is just $35 per person, which includes generous pours of all five Forgotten Grape wines, the two-hour show, and palate-cleansing snacks provided by the venue. Reservations are extremely limited and this event sold out the last time it was in the area, so make your reservations now.
