Taste Like a Somm

$150 per person

On-site at the Winery | 90 minutes

Have you ever wondered how sommeliers are able to correctly guess wines in blind tastings? Join Diana Bender as she pulls back the curtain to reveal a step-by-step method to help you learn the key tricks and clues to Taste Like a Somm.

How do wine professionals come up with tasting notes like “leather” or “forest floor”? How do they know if a Cabernet Sauvignon is from Bordeaux or Napa? How can they possibly guess the year? During this educational and fun tasting, we will explore three different wines through the senses of sight, smell, taste, and touch. While we can’t promise you’ll be able to win the next blind tasting competition, you’ll walk away with the tools, knowledge, and confidence to enhance your enjoyment of wine, and maybe even impress your friends or boss at that next party.
