Weekly Blind Tastings
Alternating Sundays and Mondays
For these tastings, the people involved are usually split into two groups and assigned a wine to bring. For the most part we are bringing modestly priced wines that represent a varietal and/or region. The wines that Group A bring are put into brown bags and tasted blind by Group B, and vis-a-versa. Wines are evaluated on various components, revealed, and discussed.
There are very few environments where you can taste varietals horizontally or vertically to help define your perspective on a grape or a region. Focused tastings are slated for certain tasting dates and are an incredible learning tool.
Whether you’re gearing to get certified for your job, to build your resume, or to reward your investment and education in wine, there will be people who can help you attain your goals. Common focuses include the Court of Master Sommeliers and WSET, among others.
