On May 24, 1976, Steven Spurrier, an Englishman who owned a wine shop in Paris looking for a publicity stunt to promote his his business. He and Patricia Gallagher the sole American on the the panel hit on the idea of blind tasting a panel of French wine experts. It would be some top French wines vs a very under the radar wine region just starting to gain any recognition world wide at all, Napa Valley. The result? The California wine placed top in both white and red. This set off a frenzy for wines in Napa which has not slowed down to this day. It also set off a wave of winemaking across the world as people woke up to the idea that the French didn't have a monopoly on creating world class wine. We'll be recreating the blind tasting with some modern American wines vs. their French counterparts.
