Union Square | Blind Tasting Workshop Series

13 E. 13th Street, New York 10003

Join Laura Fiorvanti, for a Blind Tasting Workshop! This series pack is a great way to learn to assess wine, preparing for exams for CMS-A, WSET, Institute of Masters of Wine, or to become more confident in understanding and identifying the components of wine, and describing those elements. We will hone your deductive tasting skills and teach you how to tell the difference between classic grape varietals, regions, winemaking, quality, and age based on three elements of wine: sight, nose, and palate.
