Come on, admit it: you're dying to know. Just how DO professional sommeliers identify the seemingly endless varieties of wine out there with just a quick sniff and a little taste?
Allow us to enlighten you: it's not brain surgery. Join author, certified sommelier and "San Francisco's Most Wanted Wine Guru" (C Magazine) Courtney Cochran as she guides curious tasters like yourself through the essentials of blind tasting in our second installment of Boot Camp 2012. You'll taste six wines and mingle with fellow Hip Tasters before wrapping up with a taste-off between teams to stir up a little friendly interaction. Let's broader our collective wine savvy, shall we?
Get the scoop on the finer points of professional tasting at the very cool Cellar 360 overlooking the bay. It's the kind of class you definitely don't want to skip.
