Wine Crush: Geja's 35th Annual Wine Tasting Contest

Welcome to Wine Crush, where Eater scouts the city's wine events, dinners and deals -- so you can get to the bottom of that bottle so much easier. Know about a great wine deal in the city? Let us know.

Gejas.jpgIf you're not concerned with watching football on Sunday and want to get your drink on with something other than Miller Lite, head over to Geja's Café for the 35th annual Professional/Amateur wine tasting contest (we couldn't have come up with a zippier name if we tried). The longest-running wine tasting contest in the country pits Joe Wine Bottle (doesn't have the same ring as Joe Six Pack, does it, Ms. Palin?) against professionals in the wine industry with a blind tasting event. Don't worry if you've worked in the wine world in the past -- as long as it hasn't been in the last three years, you're considered an amateur. The event kicks off at 1pm, has a $20 entrance fee and will award the top quaffer with a weekend trip for two to California's wine country. So if you think you can whiff out some wine, get thee down to Geja's. And maybe stay for the fondue and flamenco.
