This Thursday at the Providence Community Boating Center, they’re sailing a little less, and thinking more about the holidays. It’s time for the last CBC Wine Tasting Challenge of the year, and this time the they’re going with Prosecco! What better way to help select the perfect jug o’ bottle of wine for the holidays than to throw back sample several types of this sparkling white!

If you’ve never been to a CBC wine tasting before, it goes like this:

  • Your team (of up to 3 people) brings 3 bottles of the same Prosecco
  • … and you each bring a suggested $10 donation for CBC
  • We serve 2 of your bottles (blindly) and put the 3rd one in the prize pool.
  • You vote on your favorite (remember, you can’t see the labels)
  • If your wine gets voted as favorite, you win all the 3rd bottles.
  • The more people that come, the bigger the prize pool!

For the rest of the details, check out the CBC event page or find a team mate at this facebook event. Remember, you can now get to the boathouse via the Gano St exit off of I-195.

See you there (with your 3 bottles and donation) at 7pm!
