Recently a friend of mine and I put together a blind tasting for ourselves and 10 friends. Afterward it was one of those pot luck “bring a dish” things with more good stuff to eat than anyone could possibly ask for. It was a great evening. If you and your friends want to have a fun evening, here is how we did it.
If you believe that a lot of wine lovers get too stuffy and pretentious about their expensive wine, have I got some ammunition for you.
A blind tasting is one where you don’t know what the wine is until later. The wine will either have a bag around the bottle or it will be in a decanter. You will learn more about wine and more about yourself at a blind tasting than anywhere else I can think of.
