Blind Tasting

in-person90min

Description

Learn the "deductive tasting method" that wine pros use to evaluate wines and then put it to the test yourself! You might surprise yourself with how much you can learn about a wine when you're "blind" to what is in the glass. We'll end with a little blind tasting competition to have a little fun with the tasting method! This is a great experience for teambuilding.
