Our first time at the Marriott Marquis in downtown San Diego! Our venue host will be Advanced Sommelier Josh Orr. We will get a tour of the brand-new wine cellar and then proceed to our private dining room.
In this wine tasting dinner, we will have one cheap and one expensive bottle of each grape/region combination. Throughout the evening, we will go through 5 sets of 2 wines, tasting a total of 10 different bottles at 2 ounzes each. For example, we could compare a cheap Rhone Valley Syrah with a very expensive one, side by side, and then do the same thing for 4 other grapes.
Enjoy the blind-tasting commentary of professional sommeliers attending this tasting.
We will all try to guess which grape and region we are dealing with in each pair of wines, and of course the critical question will be which wine is the expensive one. We have a nice three-course dinner alongside. Wine cost is $60, plus dinner expense.
Look forward to an educational and fun blind-tasting dinner that will bring your tasting skills to a new level.
We will try to pick some special wines that are well worth our expense. Any important varietal from around the world is fair game this evening, with the promise that the specific bottles must be from one of the best regions of that varietal.

What recent past attendees thought:
"I thought the course was VERY INFORMATIVE AND INTERESTING! I am a wine novice, just casually enjoyed wine, and had next to no knowledge…..I felt it gave so much information and I am totally hooked, and want to keep learning! – I will definitely take it again, or the certification course. I am also going to refer a few friends."
"I really enjoyed the class. I had been looking for some sort of low pressure, fun sommelier educational class for over a year and I feel so fortunate to have come across your class. I thought things were organized and ran very well. I liked how fast paced and extremely educational it was. I am impressed with how much I learned in such a short time period. Thank you for doing a great job!"
