At each Blind Tasting League gathering, using the techniques of the masters, you will learn how to identify the grape, country of origin and more and more as we progress through the wide world of wine. You can pick and choose the classes but the more you come, the more you learn!

The Blind Tasting League Returns... Virtually

The Blind Tasting League Returns... Virtually

Calling all blind tasters! Our in-house blind tasting class, The Blind Tasting League is all set to make its dramatic return… virtually.

We will be coming to you once a month via Facebook live with two wines, a red and a white. Both wines will be available at Metro Wines for pickup in advance of the tasting, we will have them in bags simply marked with a “1” and a “2” so that you can taste blindly along with me. No peeking! While we are tasting together virtually, you can comment on what you are tasting and guess what we are drinking, and I will be able to read them during the tasting, live. It should be interactive and a lot of fun!

If you have never blind tasted before, don’t worry. This is a very entry-level blind tasting class and meant for beginners, although hopefully even seasoned blind tasters will get some practice and enjoyment out of this virtual class!

If you are interested in joining our live event, watch my video below to learn the basics of blind tasting and download these helpful materials to make the tasting a little easier. It’s the blind tasting grid from the Court of Master Sommeliers as well as a cheat sheet of common tasting descriptions of different wine varietals.

Our first virtual Blind Tasting League will go live at 5:30 on August 19th on Facebook, the link is here. There is no need to RSVP or pay for the class, it is on the house! Pick up the wines at Metro Wines in advance so you can taste with me, or just watch and consider playing along next time.

Cheers and hope to see you on Facebook Live!
