The Judgement of Paris is halted as a “before and after” moment in wine history. This 22nd of September, wine lovers will be treated to participate in a re-enactment of the famous episode, at an evening which will take place in Restaurant FortyOne, 41 years later.
The blind tasting held in 1976 was organised by British wine merchant Steven Spurrier who created the competition to compare fine French wines and the then underestimated California wines.
The re-Judgement of Paris will be hosted by the restaurant’s Sommelier Victor Nedelea, and it will allow you to taste fine Californian and French wines that echoed those tasted on the legendary competition.
The event includes a 3 course dinner with a matching wine tasting and tickets are priced at €110 per person. For bookings, please call 353 1 6620 000 or email: email@example.com
