Round 6.12 – Final round of So, You Think You Know Wine

The Stanley Cup of Wine Tasting!

Welcome to the grand finale of season six of “So, You Think You Know Wine?” This final round will determine who goes home with the cup, or in our case maybe a Zalto wine glass, and all the bragging rights that go with it.

We’ve broken out the expensive stuff for the final with an Italian icon: Tignanello. Bruce, Michael, Sara and Will have earned their spot in the final by surviving the ups and downs of the tournament and semi-finals with the highest scores overall. Watch now as James Chatto leads them through a blind tasting to determine who will score the most points on this super old world red and come out as the season six champion.
