Tasting Quality and Price in Wine Workshop 101: Class 4

A student of mine recently asked: “If everyone’s palates are different, is it really possible to discern quality?” Of course, my answer was a giant yes! But, it takes practice and having a definition of how to taste quality. In this class, we will be blind tasting 6 different wines of various price points (whilst comparing like wines) while I teach you that even if you may or may not like the wine, there are set variables that can be learned to help you determine a wine’s quality level. Costs $55 when taken alone or $50 as part of the 5 class package.
