The Art of Blind Wine Tasting
There are serious skill required in identifying wine, and practice is the only way to get there. But the most important reason to taste wine "blind" is to get an unbiased, objective understanding of what you like and dislike. Join the Cornell Club for a fun and interactive blind wine tasting of fine wine accompanied by a light buffet. Attendees will taste several wines and attempt to correctly identify the country of origin, variety, and vintage of each. Shiraz Noor, Vice President of Business Development at Acker Wines, will guide attendees through the process, offering useful tasting tips and answering questions. A former chef, sommelier, and entrepreneur, Shiraz brings a fun, no-nonsense approach to talking about (and drinking) wine like a professional.
