About: With two-parts education and one part revolution, Wine Riot has reinvented “wine tasting” for the Millennial consumer through its entertaining and interactive wine events and is pleased to announce its 2018 schedule, which will include the addition of Atlanta and Austin to its multi-city schedule. Designed for the thirsty and curious Millennial consumer, Wine Riot aims to change the often-intimidating nature of wine and wine tasting into an entertaining and educational experience, while also helping wine brands connect with this important consumer segment. Each Wine Riot event taps into the Millennial consumer’s sense of adventure and desire to try new things by providing opportunities to interact with wines from around the globe. There are three sessions: Friday 7 pm to 10 pm, Saturday 2 pm to 5 pm, and Saturday 7 pm to 10 pm. Education is important, and Wine Riot makes learning wine a lot of fun through a few key activities: Wine 101 is an interactive tastings focused on wine categories – Old World v. New World, Young v. Mature and Oaked v. Unoaked. Crash Courses is a 20-minute seminars on a particular wine subject via a compare and contrast tasting.

Siploma is a trivia-style program that allows attendees to test their wine knowledge, earning points and advancing through three degrees (Rioter, Connoisseur and Junior Somm) with Siploma levels displayed on wine glasses like merit badges.
