A month ago we were privileged to be a media partner for Uncorked Summer 2016!
This amazing wine tasting event was created to combine great wine with a unique and fun expereince.
Uncorked Summer 2016 came with themed wine stations, games,great people and took place at the Royal Hamilton Amateur Dinghy Club overlooking the glorious Hamilton Harbour, just in time for a beautiful sunset!
We had asked a few awesome local bloggers to attend the event and share their expereince, so we will post each separately.

As a yoga instructor, I finished my Thursday work day with oms and meditation. When a good friend of mine invited me to the event Uncorked, I was thrilled. Thursdays are normally my favorite day of the week, and I knew that Uncorked will make it even more perfect.
I prepared my evening yoga class, unknowingly theming my class around wine tasting through savasana and couldn’t help but slip into the same calming sensation a good glass of red wine gives. Knowing I would be arriving late, I threw on lipstick and a dress and made my way to the Dinghy Club.
The sun was setting over the event as I tasted my first glass of champagne of the night. The bubbles tickled my tongue as I made my rounds finding familiar faces. This light and sweet bubbly was the perfect pairing to the few new friends I made that evening. As the bubbles in my champagne glass rose, the chatter among new and old friends filled the air.
I moved my way over to the white wine table as was greeted with the beautiful smile of Karen from Discovery Wines. As we sipped our glasses of white wine, the tree frogs joined the DJ in symphony of sound. Glasses of white wine filled as the full moon rose over the crowd.
The crowds moved towards the red wine table and the mood shifted. The photo booth started to fill up with crowds wearing viking hats and oversized sunglasses. As the red wine poured, laughter echoed across the harbour. The smooth flavors of berry and oak lingered on our pallets as the brilliance of the full moon lit our faces.
Some say that there is nothing to do in Bermuda but Uncorked proved them wrong. As I sipped my final glass of sangria, I couldn’t help but smile. The sweet taste of summer fruits in my wine glass reminded me of long summer days fishing off Northshore rocks; a mango fruit in one hand, fishing line in the other. Uncorked was a quintessential Bermudian summer night: full of laughter and the song of a treefrog while moonlight illuminated our wine glasses.
