We are pleased to announce that tickets are now live for The Wine Room welcoming Master Sommelier, Author, Tequila and Mezcal Producer, and TGHG friend Richard Betts* for an evening of wine and spirits pairings at The Cypress Room on Tuesday, February 17 at 6:30 p.m.

*Fun Fact: Richard passed the Court of Master Sommelier’s Master’s Exam on the very first attempt – becoming only the 9th person to do so and one of only 200 Master Sommeliers recognized in the world today! 

^ greatness...

^ greatness…

In the presence of greatness, The Genuine Hospitality Group Wine Director Eric Larkee joins Chefs Michael Schwartz and Roel Alcudia for a scratch and sniff expedition with Richard, following their noses and choosing courses and pairings accordingly. Spin your wheel of wine, tequila and mezcal fortune and enter at your own risk of becoming an expert at The Cypress Room! $240 includes it all:

– Outdoor hors d’oeuvres reception
– 6 courses with beverage pairings:
course 1: citrus
course 2: red fruit
course 3: black fruit
course 4: earth
course 5: wood
course 6 (dessert): wild card
– Signed copy of Betts’ The Essential Scratch & Sniff Guide to Becoming a Wine Expert 
– Tax and gratuity

We’re really excited for this rare, fun opportunity to collaborate on an event with one of our favorite people for the first time [GASP] at one of Michael’s restaurants!

QUICK REMINDER: Tickets are almost sold out for February 18’s Cockscomb Pizzeria, and the menu will be released later this month on The Genuine Kitchen blog.  Grab a seat, as Chris’s event with Michael, Andrew Zimmern and friends with Cobaya at PAMM is sold out later that week so this is probably the last chance this year to eat @offalchris‘ food in Miami. For our full listing of upcoming ticketed events, including January 27’s Slow Food Ark of Taste and more, please visit The Genuine Kitchen’s events page.

Thanks for supporting more Genuine events in 2015, and see you at The Wine Room!
