You’ve seen it in the movie SOMM. You saw it in the movie BOTTLE SHOCK. The ability for a Sommelier to be handed a glass of wine and you watch her deduce all the nuance, details, grape varieties, regions, and more. How do they do it?

Blind wine tasting is an excellent exercise to help attune your sense of smell, sense of taste, and deductive reasoning. And in this Workshop, we’ll teach you the tips and tricks that sommeliers use to figure out what’s in the glass. Using visual, olfactory, and taste cues we can learn a TON about a wine while also figuring out what is in the glass. The result? You’re a better wine taster!

The Wine Workshops are designed to be a fast infusion of wine knowledge, taught by one of the most experienced wine educators in the country, certified sommelier Jason Kallsen. When properly and clearly explained, wine does not need to be intimidating. Which of course then makes it much more fun.

We hope you can join us for theĀ Wine Workshop: Blind Tasting Hints, Tips, and Tricks
