"Del" Sommelier Dinner: Tasting Methods of the Court of Master Sommeliers

Dear Members of the San Diego Wine Society:

please join us for a relaxed dinner at the DEL CORONADO where we will together explore the systematic blind-tasting methodology used by the Court of Master Sommeliers. This evening will be fun and highly useful for every wine drinker, experienced level or just beginning. It will deliver you a clear and concentrated tool box to objective wine evaluation and identification. The line up will only include typical classics of the world:

Bordeaux, Burgundy, Barolo, Chianti, Rioja, Riesling, Rhone Syrah etc

I just returned from the Court's Advanced Sommelier course and would like to share the methods learned and demonstrate how you can become a much better wine drinker within 3 hours.

Please join me. Again, your background in wine does not matter. Our society is open to everyone. While we focus deeply on the applied study of wine, you don't need prior a background. Our blind-tastings are a great equalizer for experts and novices alike.

This wine tasting event of 8+ typical wines from around the world will be priced at $60 plus the dinner dish of your choice a la carte:
