Checkered Past Winery to Host Blind Wine Tasting Tomorrow

Lost Oaks, based in Burleson, has been winning awards with varietals that are distinctly suited to Texas’ climate—Viognier and Tempranillo among others.

I do love a blind tasting. In 1976, in a Paris wine tasting ever-after deemed The Judgment of Paris, which pitted Old-World wines against New-World (Napa was yet little-known), California cabernets outdid Bordeaux reds; California’s chardonnays out-competed France’s as well, shocking the wine world.

Tomorrow evening, Checkered Past Winery will host its first Wine Smackdown, featuring four wines from local award-winning Lost Oaks winery pitted against four comparable global wines.

You can see what happens.

Lost Oaks, based in Burleson, has been winning awards with varietals that are distinctly suited to Texas’ climate—Viognier and Tempranillo among others.

For $15, you can taste all 8 wines (4 Lost Oaks, 4 global). The panel of judges reads like a small who’s who of Cedars artisanry. And Lost Oaks founder and winemaker Gene Estes will be in attendance.
