Update: Louisville Uncorked has been canceled tonight due to weather concerns. There’s a tentative rain date set for June 29, but it hasn’t been confirmed by organizers. We’ll post when we hear for sure. In the meantime, enjoy those three extra bottles of wine tonight.

Theologian Martin Luther once professed, “Beer is made by men, wine by God.” If you agree and prefer a sip to a chug, then you might want to grab some friends and head over to ReSurfaced, which continues its summer lineup with Louisville Uncorked on Thursday.

If you’re not familiar, Louisville Uncorked is a tasting experience where participants form teams of up to three people, bring three bottles of the same wine, and then sample blindly every else’s wines — as well as their own — to vote on a favorite. The best part is, if your wine is named the best, you get to take home all the extra bottles of the night!

The idea is to open two bottles for sampling and save a third for the winning team, so you do the math.

The wine variety of this season’s Uncorked is California Whites, so start your research now or just pick the one with the cutest label featuring panda bears and penguins. There’s also a minimum donation of $20 per person for YouthBuild Louisville, a local nonprofit helps unemployed youth learn trade skills and improve the community.

Louisville Uncorked runs from 7-10 p.m. on Thursday, June 22, at ReSurfaced, 801 E. Liberty St. It’s suggested you pre-register your team online.

Other summer highlights of ReSurfaced include a Monnik Brewing and DJ Night on July 7, Salsa Night on July 8, West Sixth Brewing and DJ Night on July 21.
