Not a Fan of Soccer? The New Wine Game at Shutters on The Beach May Change Your Mind
If you're not a fan of soccer, or football, and could care less about who's winning or losing in the 2014 FIFA World Cup, then
shame on you, er, that's totally acceptable. But over at Shutters on the Beach in Santa Monica, Calif., we think you'll find it hard to resist their own clever version of the tournament called, The World Cup of Wine.
The hotel's general manager, Gregory Day, and Master Sommelier, Peter Neptune, have created a wine menu that represents each of the 32 participating countries. Yes, some of the wines were harder than others to secure but as you can see in the menu above, Shutters is serving wine from the Ivory Coast, Ecuador, Mexico, Russia and South Korea.
Now, the way the game works is like this--once a team is knocked out, so is its corresponding wine. Adios Espana!
The hotel will be showing the games and offering the World Cup of Wine menu in their Coast Cafe and Beach Bar throughout the tournament which ends on July 13. Interested in spending the night? Rates start at $468 a night this weekend. Remember: USA plays on Sunday.
