Some counties make a certain wine with such distinctiveness that they become National Icons. Come try your skill at blind tasting a New Zealand Sauvy, a Mendoza Malbec, a Barossa Shiraz, or any of the other national treasures we’ll be serving… Don’t worry we give lots of clues so this will be a fun one for wine amateurs and aficionados alike. About The Monthly Blind Tasting: Blind tasting wines is when you don’t know what you’re drinking so you can really ‘taste’ free from bias. It makes for fun conversation with your new friends, plus interactive lesson is provided by The Tasting Class. How it Works: We sit at social tables of 10. Six different covered mystery bottles of wine are shared by everyone at the table. We’ll teach some tips on tasting like a pro, and give some insight into the evening’s theme. Everyone will then have some time to blind taste the wines and try to guess what they are using the clues provided and their own sense of smell and taste. After everyone tastes all the wines we will vote for our favorite, then reveal the wines one by one, getting a lesson on each wine as we feel off their covers. Taste and discuss with everyone at the table, learn about wine, vote and enjoy some snacks and socializing. Additional Info: • A bar will be open upon arrival to warm you up for the main tasting • Snacks will be served • ATM located in the lobby Registration: • Please RSVP, and pay the registion fee of 200 AED at the tasting - 15% discount apply to EC members that RSVP before 19 October. All wines that will be served at this tasting are available from African + Eastern, and will be revealed both on the night and in the Tasting Wrap up that will be published on The Tasting Class Blog after the tasting.
