What is Uncorked?

Combine your love for food, wine and passion for a good cause at Forum 35’s Uncorked!

To mark this momentous occasion, the non-profit that this Uncorked will be supporting is Forum 35 Arts and Culture initiatives. Forum 35 is a community organization of engaged young men and women dedicated to improving and shaping Baton Rouge. Through its pillars of arts and culture, leadership, diversity, and service, Forum 35 works to empower young professionals to serve and improve the Baton Rouge community. The funds raised through this event will be used to support Forum 35's efforts.

 

 

How does it work?

At each event, a different wine varietal is highlighted. Invitees are encouraged to form teams of up to 3 members and participate in the competition or simply come and enjoy the wine and atmosphere. Each team selects and purchases three identical bottles of its favorite wine within the featured varietal to present. Two bottles are bagged, tagged, and offered for blind tasting and scoring. The third bottles will go into the winner's "pot." At the conclusion of the festivities, the scores are tallied, the winners are recognized and awarded the "pot” to split, while the lowest scoring wine is returned to its rightful owner to take home.

 

 

 

But why?

Because wine tasting with Forum 35 is such a great time! But more importantly, your participation makes an impact. All proceeds from Uncorked events benefit the chosen charity organizations, who play an integral role in the event.
