See the whole bracket here.
Two Buck Chuck advances, defeating Franzia in an intra-family grudge match. Beringer White Zinfandel cruises past Wine Sight For Women. Now it is a supermarket store showdown as much as it is a wine brand showdown – Trader Joe’s vs Safeway. Have your say in calling this game!
JJ Prum edges out Trimbach in a close matchup in the Riesling division. An all-German Riesling game ensues as Cinderella Weingut Keller advances in a narrow victory over #1 seed, Dr. Loosen! How will Klaus-Peter Keller do against JJ Prum? You make the call in the comments!
In the Parkerized wine bracket, MollyDooker from Australia and Ornellaia from Italy rolled to easy victories over their Spanish and French rivals. Quite a contrast of styles and price points here – hit the comments with how you see it playing out.
And in the natural wine bracket, both the games were hard-fought. Cappellano from Piedmont beat the Beaujolais bad boy Thivin to advance. But at the end of regulation, Coulee de Serrant and Puzelat were TIED with the same number of votes! So the judges had to turn to the comments and, in the final analysis of the tape, the reasons for Puzelat advancing were funnier! So it’s Puzelat who gets through to face Cappellano in an all Louis/Dressner quarterfinal. You decide the winner in the comments!
Voting for this round will close at 11:59 PM on Sunday. Come back to vote in the semifinals and final next week!
