This year’s festival kicks off with Rhode Island’s second Sommelier Punchdown at the new event venue at Sprout CoWorking! Co-hosted by Certified Sommeliers Ian Magiros of M.S. Walker and Jonathan Feiler of Ocean House, this event sees a handful of our state’s best Certified Sommeliers pitted against each other in a wine theory quiz, a blind wine tasting, and a collaboration with a local chef. Some of our favorite chefs will present small bites with a wine pairing that the sommeliers believe is the perfect complement. Guests will vote on the fan favorite pairing, and Magiros & Feiler will tally the points of all three components of the competition to decide who reigns supreme in the southern New England wine world.

If you’re passionate about wine and would love to learn more about how sommeliers refine their palates and sharpen their ability to recall wines, then this is the event for you.

Sommelier Punchdown tickets are $50 and include welcome bubbles & hors d’oeuvres, wine tastings and food & wine pairing.
