Wine 401: Blind Tasting Secrets

Course Synopsis:

Do you love a good mystery? Want to put your senses to the test? If so, this is the class for you!

More than a parlor trick, blind tasting involves focused sensory skills connected to a keen puzzle solving mentality. In this course we’ll connect our senses and minds to unravel the mysteries behind the wines we find in each glass. We’ll explore the process of deductive tasting to systematically answer key questions such as grape variety, growing region, winemaking style, with evidence from the glass.

After this class, you’ll be a better taster and gain key insight to continue improving one glass at a time.


  • Class focuses on the science of wine production and sensory analysis and includes hands-on experiments.
  • A minimum of 5 different wines will be explored via guided tastings
  • Light appetizers will be provided
  • A maximum of 16 seats are available in each course
