Learn the secrets that Sommeliers use every day!

Sommelier culture and practices were put in the spotlight with the SOMM documentaries, plus the rise of sommelier recognition in the United States. Becoming a sommelier isn’t easy, especially when it comes to service standards and blind tasting. In this webinar, we’ll fill you in on some secrets.

When a sommelier is handed a glass of wine for evaluation, what is the process of that evaluation? What do we discern from the look of a wine, the first smells, the first tastes, and the overall combination of the senses? What do we look for in a glass of wine to determine quality? And how can we look in the crystal ball to determine how a wine will age, with just one taste?

All of these topics and more are covered in our Secrets of the Somm course. You’ll finish as a more confident wine drinker, guaranteed!

As always, no specific wines are needed to have to enjoy the class. We teach on the model of “learn today to shop smarter tomorrow.” Enjoy a glass or two of anything you wish while learning. (Even a beer if you wish … don’t worry, we won’t tell anyone.)


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.

We hope you can join us for SECRETS OF THE SOMM!
