Palate Builder - Taste Like a Pro
Saturday, August 23, 2014 from 3:30 PM to 5:30 PM (PDT)
Los Angeles, CA
LearnAboutWine started in 1995 and has invented hundreds of classes to
assist Southern California’s wine culture – this is one of our best!
This unique, action-packed, tasting class and palate workout will help you
break through to fine wine appreciation! It is intended to be a class that you
will return again and again.
This is like a game show and drinking game combined!
A sense/scents of place tasting
Explore the smells of wines with our Le Nose Du Vin sensory kit.
Learn about unique grapes, places, and wine making styles
Learn about grape identification, varietal markers, alcohol indicators,
ripeness appreciation, and the common scents in common sense.
This level-3 tasting program is the ultimate class for those of you who like
wines but have a hard time describing what you smell, taste, feel and need
more information and practice.
This class is not for people who have never tasted wine before, but for those
of you who are ready to move to the next level.
This promises to be one of our best wine education experiences!
We hope you will come ready to taste, learn, and participate - prizes will be awarded to the best team in the blind tasting.
*If event does not sell over 20 guests, we will reduce the number of bottles - to one bottle per guest and not cancel the program.
Limited to 24 guests per session.

No class fee is predicated on the tasting of any wine, no price determined by any one bottle or overall promise of quantity of wine. The experience and education is what is being purchased; should a bottle be bad, corked, or not served, that will not affect the pricing and our refund policy will remain intact.
