This Meetup Dubai Wine Club class is centered around 'blind' tasting wines. Since you can't see the label you can really 'taste' the wines free from bias, and it makes for fun conversation with your new friends. This interactive lesson is powered by The Tasting Class.
How it Works: We sit at tables of 10 and there are six bottles of different wines to be shared by everyone at the table. The bottles are covered so no one knows what they are.
The Tasting Class will teach you some tips on tasting (and popping corks) like a pro, and gives some insight into the different types of sparkling wine production. Everyone will then have some time to blind taste the wines and ask Lindsay, the sommelier from The Tasting Class, anything they want about the wine.
After everyone tastes all the wines we will vote for our favourite. We then reveal what the wines are one by one and The Tasting Class will give a brief lesson on each of the wines.
Taste and discuss with everyone at the table, learn about wine, vote and enjoy some snacks and the socializing.
Food: There will be light snacks provided
A bar will be open in case you would like to warm your palate up for the main tasting as we wait for everyone to arrive
There is an ATM located in the hotel lobby
