CHARLOTTE, NC – April 11, 2017 -- Wine aficionados have a new opportunity to craft their own signature blend, as The Ritz-Carlton, Charlotte has launched a fun and educational Wine Blending Experience at its Hidden Wine boutique.

In the new tasting adventure, guests can find their inner winemaker, collaborating with the hotel Wine Steward to explore different wine flavors and varietals from around the globe including Cabernet, Merlot, Grenache and Syrah. Each participant is then invited to craft a personal signature blend inspired by the preferred flavor profile of these varietals. The leisurely offering presents a new Charlotte opportunity for social gatherings, date nights and entertaining clients and is priced at $65 per person. It is available to the public as well as overnight guests.

Located next to the lobby Front Desk, Hidden Wine houses a prized collection of European, American, and sparkling wines and Champagne which hotel guests can enjoy either with their meal or in-room. Hand-curated wines include organic and small batch labels, along with an exclusive collection available prior to release in the local market. In honoring the hotel’s LEED® Gold-certification, the boutique is adorned with reclaimed woods and recycled cast iron materials, designed in collaboration with the sustainability-focused Encore Architectural Salvage of Charleston, South Carolina.

To experience the joy of blending at The Ritz-Carlton, Charlotte, visit Hidden Wine or call the hotel at +1-704-547-2244. Hidden Wine also offers wine and cheese pairings each Wednesday from 2:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m.
