Sixty California red blends were sampled, only four made it to the Wine Battles' Semi Finals

Semi-Finalists were selected from 60 red blends

"It is like a wine game and a wine class that I can do with my husband" states Battler Jana Danza.

After thousands of votes, Wine Battlers have selected the Semi-Finalists in the ‘Push Your Palate Battle’. Members of the tournament style wine education site sampled eight boutique red blends and choose four winners. The selection process started nine months ago with the Wine Battles Selection Team Tasting over 60 California Based Red Blends to choose the best eight for the tournament. The tournament combines the exploration of new wines with a competition that teaches participants while members enjoy wine and play in the game.

“Over the last six weeks, our members expanded their wine knowledge while they enjoyed the best red blends we could find,” said Steve Frederick, who leads the Wine Battles Selection Team.

“We are proud and honored that we made it into the completion,” said Dave Corey, Wine Artist at Semi-Finalist Core Wines. “We are also ecstatic to advance to the Semi-Finals.” The other Semi-Finalists are Brassfield Estates’ 2010 Eruption, Marilyn Remark’s 2008 GSP, and Vermiel Wines’ 2008 XXXIV Red Blend.

The Semi-Finals Pairings are as follows:

Battle 1: Starts January 16th
Marilyn Remark Winery 2009 GSP v Brassfield Estate Winery Eruption Red 2010

Battle 2: Starts January 23rd
