Try Your Hand at Wine Blending!

Mark your calendars for the 3rd Annual Team Blending Challenge on Saturday, August 22 this year! The challenge is for multiple teams of 2 to 4 members. Many teams in the past two years have come with matching clothes, or even home-decorated T-shirts to represent their team! Canyon Wind Cellars’ Owner/Winemaker, Jay Christianson, will start the day with a short blending seminar. This is a crash course in how to best approach creating wine blends using single varietal wines. Afterwards, you and your team will compete in a fun 45-minute challenge to blend and name your very own wine creation. You are given varietal wines to create your blend, and they are anonymously brown-bagged—to help you keep an open mind! This allows you to focus only on each varietal’s unique aromas and flavors and how they might be best combined with other varietals.

Once the challenge has ended, you will enjoy lunch inside or outside under the mulberry tree while our winemakers taste your blended creations and determine the winners. Awards will be given for the best blend created, the runner-up best blend, and the best blend name. This event is limited to just 12 teams, so gather your friends soon while tickets are still available and get ready to blend your way to victory!

CWC Owners/Winemakers Jay and Jennifer Christianson would also like to host a Cutthroat Blending Challenge next year in 2016—they will be presenting the idea at this year’s Team Blending Challenge. If you have not already seen the TV show “Cutthroat Kitchen,” try to catch an episode or two to get an idea of what the Cutthroat Blending Challenge will be like!

     Behold! The Golden Blender trophy!

This trophy in our tasting room has engraved plaques naming each year's winners.
