WAVERLY | A Head To Head Master Sommelier Battle

Somm v. Somm

with

Master Sommeliers Nick Hetzel and John Blazon

 

Join us for our first Somm v. Somm Wine Pairing Dinner! We’ve invited two prestigious Master Sommeliers from Jackson Family Wines to present their best wine pairings for our 4-course meal. Each Somm will argue their case for why their pairing is better and you’ll decide who wins. This is a fun and interactive way to try something different in the world of wine and learn more about how to pair our favorite beverage with your next home-cooked meal.

We are honored to have these two Master Sommeliers as our guest speakers with a wealth of knowledge between them to share. We welcome Nick Hetzel, the Director of Education for Jackson Family Wines since 2017. He started his career in the kitchen, working for several James Beard award-winning chefs, leading him to explore how wine fits in with the overall dining experience.

 

We welcome John Blazon, the Vice President of Sales for the Spire Collection at Jackson Family Wines, which includes Château Lassègue, Stonestreet, and Anakota among many others. Blazon enjoys exploring Bordeaux-style blends that are produced across the world and teaching the basics of blind tasting. Who will win the best wine pairings of the night? You’ll decide!

 

Join us for a night full of intrigue and surprises as we host a battle between two of the world’s leading Sommeliers with this brand-new event at Foxcroft.
