Our hallmark event, based on identifying grapes, countries and years in a range of international wines.
With our unique formula, your guests will be enthralled at just how much they can detect and how quickly blind tasting skills can be developed. As well as competing in the tasting challenge, guests, tasting in teams and individually, will also learn how to unlock the mysteries of picking good wine from bad, finding bargains and avoiding corked and problem wines.
The success rates for the tasting are high, for expert and novice alike, as the challenge is not reliant on prior knowledge.
