Be the winemaker for a day! The 1840 Blending Experience is available to all 1840 and 1840 Custom Case Club members from January 2 through January 31. It’s easy and fun to compete. Here's how:
The Bending Branch winemaking team will recreate all the submissions in February, when Owner Dr. Bob Young and General Manager Jennifer McInnis Fadel will judge the entries.
Winners will be announced at the Wine Club Lounge at 4 p.m. on Saturday, March 5. The winning teams will be treated to a very special Winner Dinner in the spring.
Please note that we may have to reschedule your reservation due to inclement weather.
Don’t wait until the end of the month – reservations are limited!
