LA: Blind Tasting Challenge with Nancie Hemminger
September Virtual Tasting Event
Test your wine knowledge at our next virtual event as we present a fun and interactive Blind Tasting with Certified Sommelier Nancie Hemminger, our current LA Chapter President, as she leads us through the Deductive Tasting Method – a step by step sensory process that teaches you the skills of determining the varietal, region, vintage and producer of a wine by analyzing the evidence in the glass using your sight, smell and taste. Are you up for the Blind Tasting Challenge? You may surprise yourself with how much you already know.
Join in the fun on Thursday, September 10th at 6pm PST on Zoom. We will be focusing on single varietal wines, and anyone who correctly guesses all four will win a prize! With your registration you will receive a tasting fight of four mystery wines in 5oz. mini bottles and deductive tasting materials. Hand delivery is included. Open to Los Angeles residents only. The Zoom link will be sent after registration.
Each bottle contains enough wine for 2-3 people to comfortably examine each wine. Purchase as many kits as you need for your social pod. You will need to have 2 wine glasses per person for a side-by-side comparison. We will blind taste 2 white wines and 2 red wines. Water and plain crackers are recommended to cleanse your palate. You might also want to have paper cups, or a bucket on hand for spitting. The cost of each tasting flight is $35 for Women For WineSense members, $40 for non-members. Don’t forget – there’s a prize!
Registration closes end of day Tuesday, 9/8 so wines can be delivered on Wednesday, 9/9.
