METADATA FOR EMTAF
Want to learn about wine (and have some fun)? Here’s how
A Wine Riot tasting event is geared toward Millennials who want to learn more about wine without any of the stuffy trappings.

You’re out to dinner and asked to select a wine. You tentatively point at the menu. Your sommelier returns and delicately pours a splash into your long-stemmed glass. You swirl, sniff, murmur something about notes of floral and amber, and then gulp your selection and pray for the best.
If this sounds familiar, go to Wine Riot on Nov. 16-17 at the Castle at Park Plaza (130 Columbus Ave.). The wine-tasting education event is geared toward millennials who want to learn more about wine without any of the stuffy trappings. Taste more than 100 wines, learn about proper food pairings (helped along by Boston chefs), and throw back a glass at a Bubble Bar tattoo station. And if wine isn’t your thing, there’s also a cocktail-making course spotlighting cognac and Hennessy blends.
Tickets are $65 for Friday or Saturday sessions including tastings, photo booth sessions, and a souvenir glass. Get them at www.wineriot.com.
