Join wine expert Ian Blackburn LIVE on Zoom with a 12-wine tasting flight kit (1.5-2-oz pours of each wine; about 1-bottle per person in total!) We taste three wines at-a-time, blind! We tell you what each of the wines are and what they smell/taste like, but we don’t tell you which one is which! Deductive tasting is a fantastic way to learn about wine--you'll have a blast guessing the right answers! Trivia questions and other interactive elements keep the good times rolling while you develop tasting skills and learn wine terminology. You'll leave this class with the confidence to identify wines out there in the wild! Action-packed and delicious, this class is fun for everyone!
