We will be joining the LA Wine Elite at the Redd Collection in Culver City for an afternoon of wine education & fun.
We will start the afternoon with a fundamental understanding of the elements of wine and all the basic tools we will need to begin tasting knowledgeably. We’ll enjoy some sparkling wine to get us started.
Part One - we will learn a systematic approach to tasting, involving the examination of the wine’s appearance, aromas, and palate qualities.
Part Two - we will provide you with over 50 different samples of substances that are common descriptors of wine fragrances, including fruits, flowers, spices, and other intriguing essences.
Part Three - we will begin to apply your new knowledge by systematically tasting 8 different varietals – for instance Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Syrah, or Zinfandel – and working to identify their essential aromas and tastes.
Part Four - we will “test” your skills by pouring three wines blind and asking you to guess what wines you are tasting.
After taking this class, we believe you will emerge with a sounder set of tasting skills than you have ever had before, and you will also have had a Hell of a lot of fun.
There will be a selection of cheeses for us to enjoy as well.
The cost for this event will be $49 all inclusive. The event is expected to last 2.5 hours. There will be an area reserved for the group at the Redd Collection. Michael and Joey, both experienced in wine education, will host.
