We are thrilled you may be joining us for the Sommelier Smack-Down! The menu is expertly crafted for your enjoyment, and the wine selected by Wichita's best.
The tasting will begin at 4:00 p.m. Upon arriving at Newport Grill, you will check-in at the front desk. Each guest will receive a name tag, Riedel commemorative glass, voting card and pen. Those who purchased the VIP Experience will be directed to a private tasting area.
You will decide which of these six wine connoisseurs' best pairs two wines with delectable creations from host Newport Grill and participating restaurants: Woodfire Grille, Chester's Chophouse & Wine Bar, and Siena Tuscan Steahouse. Don't forget to make them "work" for your votes! Voting should be completed by 5:30 p.m. so results can be tabulated and the winner named. Just drop your voting card in one of the voting boxes.
Although only one can be named winner of the Sommelier Smack-Down, everyone is a winner, especially the patients of Guadalupe Clinic who will benefit from this wonderful event. We would like to graciously acknowledge our generous sponsors for this event, without whom, the event would not be possible.
