Somm Showdown Returns!

Eric Glomski, Peter Kasperski & Sel Restaurant in downtown Scottsdale present


Sunday, May 5th, 6:30PM

For most of the past decade, Eric & PK held an annual Sommelier Showdown event at Cowboy Ciao (RIP).  Essentially, the Somm Showdown is Wine Dinner turned Interactive Competition. The 2 ‘Somms’ each serve a wine per course, double-blind, and guests vote which wine paired best with the food.

This year, the Somm Showdown is being held on Cinco de Mayo at Sel in Scottsdale.  Sel Chef/Owner Branden Levine is offering his unique venue and creative cuisine as host of the event.  Eric Glomski, Owner/Winemaker of Page Springs Cellars and founder of Arizona Stronghold Winery and Provisioner Wines, remains undefeated in the Showdown.  PK, former owner of Cowboy Ciao, Kazimierz, Sea Saw, Counter Intuitive, and his own sanity remains steadfast that the 8th time is the charm.  There may also be a special guest appearance, these things tend to draw a crowd.

To recap: 5 courses, 10 wines, countless dad jokes, $100++ per guest, tickets can be purchased by calling Sel Restaurant (480) 949 6296.  Seating is limited, get your ticket soon! and
