At one of Orange County’s premier wine tasting benefits, The Wooden Floor, a creative youth development nonprofit organization, invites guests for a unique experience to taste the world’s top 1-3% wines while supporting under-served youth from low-income communities at the 13th Annual Keep The Promise Wine Tasting Benefit. Since 2007, the organization partners with long-time supporters and benefit founders John and Janice Markley, who collect and donate 12 of the world’s rarest wines, with an overall average rating of 97+ points, from regions such as France, Italy, Spain, Germany and Portugal as well as California and Washington.
While sampling rare wines at the benefit, enjoy listening to success stories from students, and participate in activities for select prizes, including the crowd-favorite blind tasting competition, Opportunity Drawings, and a silent auction. Big Canyon Master Sommelier, Steven Poe, will diligently and perfectly pair the outstanding wines with signature small plates. Previous wines served at the event include the 100 point 2011 M. Chapoutier Ermitage Le Pavillon from Rhone, France, which is valued at $350 per bottle, and the 99 point 2012 Realm The Bard Proprietary Red Wine from Napa Valley, CA, valued at $300 per bottle.
Sponsorships for Keep The Promise begins at $1,000 and individual tickets begin at $350 per person with a $250 tax deductible. To support our students at The Wooden Floor, visit TheWoodenFloor.org/WineTasting for tickets and more details.
