Tricky Dicky Wine Tasting

Test your wine knowledge!

Did you know Nixon was a connoisseur of wines? While entertaining, he was known to pour himself a glass of Château Margaux while the waitstaff poured cheaper wines for his dinner guests - obscuring the label with a napkin! Would you be able to tell the difference?

If you can identify the type, country of origin and shape of the bottle for two out of three wines you win a complimentary full glass from your purchased flight!
