What is Wine Lovers Speed Dating?
Mingle over merlots and chardonnays as you sample both your drinks and your dates. If the thought of fruity flavours fusing together sets your taste buds tingling, Fast Life Wine Lovers Speed Dating may be just your thing!
This event kicks off with an entertaining and interactive introductory lesson on wine culture designed to teach novice wine lovers the fundamentals of wine appreciation. You’ll be able to talk aromas, tastes and textures as you expand your knowledge of the nectar from the gods.
Then it’s on to the speed dating, with each date accompanied by a different wine or sumptuous hors d’oeuvre. Every eight minutes the men will move on to meet their next date and you will be provided with a match card. If someone takes your fancy, simply write their name on your card and hand it to the host at the end of the night. If the feeling is mutual, contact details will be provided via email the next day. Mix talk of tannins with flirtation, or let the wine become the backdrop as other textures develop...
The hand-picked, taste bud tingling hors d’oeuvres menu includes:
-Asparagus wrapped with Parmesan in Phyllo Dough
-Arugula & Goat Cheese Croissants
-Grilled Pineapple with Tuna Tartare
-Smoked Salmon with Avocado Foam
-Dried Figs stuffed with Almonds and Bleu Cheese
-Crisp Fried Oysters with Wasabi Aioli
-Mocha Ice Cream on Spoons
The cost to attend is only $69.95 which includes a wine culture session with a qualified wine coach, gourmet hors d’oeuvres, 8 wine tastings and 10 dates.
