Regardless of your role (host, cook, or guest) in celebrations this November and December, holiday fatigue is an all-too-familiar concept for many people. New Year’s Eve, on the other hand, can be an opportunity to sit back, relax, and enjoy some bubbly. If you’re looking for an enjoyable and wine-related way to unwind this New Year’s, the wine.net team has the answer: Wine Battles!
According to their website, Wine Battles is the only social, tournament-style wine tasting competition out there, and will help you become a more well-rounded vino drinker. When you join Wine Battles, you and a partner will be shipped two bottles of vino for eight weeks; each of these wines are hand-selected by experts and are the perfect counterparts to each other. You and your partner will decant, drink, and choose which of the two wines you believe is better, and then share your notes with other competitors via your unique Wine Battles profile.
Red, White, and Combination Battles are all available, and there are three different pricing levels to choose from: Explorer ($49/month), Reserve ($79/month), and Cellar Builder ($119/month). Included in each shipment of wine is two hand selected wines, tasting notes, battle instructions, and voting sheets, and a WineBattles.com Premium Membership. Wine Battles offers over 60 different wines to choose from, and has been featured in publications like Men’s Journal and The Examiner.
