Blind tasting wine is more than a parlor trick, or a way to impress your friends, it is the most effective way to develop your tastings skills.

Learn to identify grapes and regions by color, acidity, residual sugar, tannin, alcohol, winemaking techniques, flavor, and aroma. These skills will help you improve your ability to assess, judge, describe, and buy wine (for both consumers and wine professionals). We will blind taste 12 wines, each followed by a debriefing and group discussion. You will learn how to:

Assess the main components of wine
Recognize the main styles of wine
Identify the most important wine grapes and blends
Understand the impact of soil and climate on color, aroma, and flavor
Recognize winemaking techniques
Distinguish between typicity, quality and style
Assess the components needed for extended aging
Describe color, aroma, and flavor
Make final quality assessments.
