GuildSomm: Blind Tasting Seminar
Join us for a one-of-a-kind blind-tasting wine experience. Together we have partnered with GuildSomm, a nonprofit international membership organization for wine professionals that elevates the wine and beverage community through industry education, to bring our local hospitality industry and community the opportunity to further their teaching of the wine industry.
Intro to Blind Tasting
Guest Presenter: Chris Tanghe, Master Sommelier, Education Director with Guild Somm (via Webinar)
Who is Chris?
Chris began his career in the kitchen, but inspired by front-of-house hospitality; he transitioned into wine. After working in restaurants across the country, Chris passed the MS exam in 2013. Since 2017, he has spearheaded masterclasses and contributed content as GuildSomm’s chief instructor. He now serves as education director.
What to expect?
Each attendee will receive their kit of a curated selection of 6 wines, with a tasting mat and instructions on using the site/app to evaluate these wines. Each bottle is 187 ml, which is about 6.3 fluid ounces. Wines that are benchmarks of the regions and varietals they represent are selected by the GuildSomm’s panel of Master Sommeliers.
Chris will share tasting frameworks that work well for various learning styles, allowing attendees to taste life and give direct feedback during the course. This course will benefit anyone taking early-stage certifications or working to develop their understanding of deductive tasting methods.
After the course, each attendee will receive a certificate of completion.
*Tickets are required for this course. Spaces are limited and will fill up fast.
