1,000 Points of Wine

Delaware festival to feature a tasting of 10 100-point wines

Next Saturday afternoon, a few lucky people who each pony up $500 will get to taste something few people have tried at one sitting — 10 wines that each scored a perfect 100 points on the rating sheet of someone important.

It’s part of the first annual MidAtlantic Food + Wine Feast in Wilmington, Del., a non-profit, four-day culinary event to benefit the Delaware Theater Company.
