You are invited to the heavyweight bout of the vinosphere.  France and Italy are going toe-to-toe in the tasting event of the season. Four rounds of wine against wine action will determine who will claim the coveted title of The Greatest Wine Of All Time.

You will not only get a ringside seat to this event, but you will also get to cast your vote. Does France throw in the towel? Will Italy be shown to be shopworn and faded? Will the fight go the distance? No matter the outcome, one thing is for sure. The winner of this event will be you.
