What is Louisville Uncorked?
Louisville Uncorked organizes wine tasting events for members and guests that raise money for local charities.
At each event, a different variety is selected for tasting (for example: Merlot). Participants get together in up to teams of three and select a wine they'd like to present. Three bottles of the same wine are brought. The wines are bagged, tagged, and offered to the participants for tasting and scoring. At the end of the night the scores are tallied and the team's wine with the highest score wins.
Each tasting is dedicated to a different charity that is an integral part of the event: helping organize the festivities and providing educational material letting people know about their cause.Have any questions?

Together, we'll change the definition CF from that of a life-shortening, family-destroying, tomorrow-stealing disease into an acronym for CURE FOUND!
Cystic fibrosis (CF) is a life-shortening genetic disease that primarily affects the lungs and digestive system. An estimated 30,000 children and adults in the United States (70,000 worldwide) have CF. Although cystic fibrosis requires daily care, people with the condition are able to attend school and work, and have a better quality of life than in previous decades. With the help of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, and donors like you, people with CF are able now live into their 20s and 30s, and some are living into their 40s and 50s.
