The Art of Blind Tasting: An Interactive Tasting

Join Laurie Forster, The Wine Coach® for a seminar that focuses on training you in the art of "blind tasting". Blind tastings are when you taste a series of wines without knowing the identity of the wine. Why taste blind? Wine professionals often use blind tastings as a way to focus solely on the wine without preconceived notions to cloud their observations.

Taste a series of wines . . . from different origins, different price ranges and different grape varieties, refining your tasting skills along the way. Everyone will be given the chance to guess the identity of their wines, try to pick out the least/most expensive and of course vote for their favorite wines. When the results are unveiled not only will your tasting skills be improved but we will see which teams have mastered the art of blind tasting!
