#WINETALK: The Blind Tasting Essentials
March 20, 2017 @ 1:00 pm
One of the most satisfying achievements of any oenophile is the ability to taste wine without knowing what is in the glass. There is no “hidden secret” to master the art of blind tasting. This class is a great way to help you develop your own personal style of structured tasting as well as fine-tune your ability to taste individual aspects in a wine. If you’ve ever wanted to name what’s in a glass just by tasting, Blind Tasting Essentials is a sure-fire way to learn!
WHAT IS #WINETALK?
Nashville Wine Auction is pleased to present #WineTalk, a tasting experience where you learn all about wine from one of Nashville’s foremost wine experts. Whether you are just beginning your interest in wine or are a seasoned expert, you will be in good hands with Elise Loehr, Advanced Sommelier and Beverage Director of Table 3. Every tasting will have a specific theme, so you can pick your favorite or attend them all. You’ll be sure to come away from #WineTalk with a better understanding of wine and new brands to explore. These tastings are meant to be ALL about the wine. We’ll taste and we’ll talk. Where do the wines come from, who makes them, what’s special about the region and what are the similarities and differences between the wines? You’ll also have the opportunity to ask questions to further your wine knowledge. If you are interested in wine, we know you will have fun. So, come join us for #WineTalk!
WHO IS THE EXPERT?
Elise Loehr, Advanced Sommelier and Beverage Director of Table 3. Elise knows a lot about wine and she’s great at teaching us about it too! She has attended some of the wine industry’s most challenging programs, and achieved the Advanced Sommelier Certifcation from the Court of Master Sommeliers. Elise has currently passed two of the three portions of the Court’s Master Sommelier Diploma, a certification so rigorous that less than 250 people worldwide have earned the title since its creation in 1969. She’s one of those people that can see a wine blind, smell it, taste it and tell you it’s a 1985 Red Burgundy from Gevry-Chambertin. So, you know she’s good!
