Whatcha Drinking? A Primer on Blind Wine Tastings

One of the most fun elements of our upcoming Black Wine Night events, offered on October 19 and October 26, is the blind wine tasting. Each of the dinner’s five courses is served with a specially-chosen wine… poured in a black glass from a bottle whose label is concealed by a black cloth. Throughout the meal, attendees will be encouraged to guess which wine they’re tasting; wines will be revealed at the end of the night.

Guessing the right wines can be made a little easier by understanding varietals, a concept that can be intimidating but really just means understanding that where grapes are grown impacts a wine’s texture and taste. We love this handy online resource for learning more about varietals as well as which wines pair well with specific foods and other wine info.

Want to test your blind tasting accuracy before Black Wine Night? Check out the exams that Master Sommeliers have to pass to be certified by the Court of Master Sommeliers. There are two exams: One for whites and one for reds.
