Wine Tasting Party
Aug. 31, 2006 by
Noah Kagan hosted a wine tasting party tonight. Wine was provided by Bottlenotes, and the event was sponsored by TechCrunch. Entrepreneurs and Venture Capitalists faced off to see who was better at tasting wine.
When I arrived in the afternoon, things were still being set up. There were two people at the door, waiting to give you your glass and check you off a guest list.
