Great Wines for $15 & Less: Uncorked Event + Contest

Stephanie Webster

After a successful Restaurant Week, the Westport-Weston Chamber of Commerce is preparing for their next event, The Chamber-Uncorked, A Food and Wine Experience taking place on March 25th @6pm.  

The concept for this wine focused event will be “Great Wines for $15 and Less,” proving that fabulous wine does not need to break the bank. Wine enthusiast and shop owner Robert Appell of Westport's new Bottles Wine & Spirits, will be acting sommelier for the evening, lending his expertise to the tasting. 

Naturally, where there is wine – there is food! The cuisine for the evening is a virtual tour around the world, and will complement the diversity of the wine. There will be sushi presented by Matsu Sushi, BBQ from Bobby-Qs, Indian cuisine from Bombay, Caribbean dishes by Blue Lemon, an Italian bounty table by Collyer Catering, and sweet treats by CakeSuite.  

Here comes the fun part: Testing one’s wine knowledge, a pricier wild card bottle of wine will be poured among the many others for folks to see if they can taste the difference. Plus, a common food ingredient will be used by all of the restaurants/caterers – again, challenging one’s palate.  Guess the wine, and receive the bottle. Guess the secret ingredient and receive a basket full of all things delicious! 

“This event is a terrific opportunity for us to get to know the community and present Bottles Wine & Spirits to both aficionados and novice wine drinkers. We focus on value, quality, and what our customers enjoy drinking, “says Robert, “People will be surprised by the caliber of wines that can be purchased for $15 and below.”

Gault Stone Showroom will host The Chamber-Uncorked. Raffle prizes include an in-home wine tasting with Tony Gagliardo of Northeast Wine Broker and a Smartcar for the weekend donated by Gault. 

Date: March 25th, 6PM @ The Gault Stone Showroom, 11 Ferry Lane, Westport
