THE ULTIMATE IN SENSORY TRAINING: A weekly program to prepare for upper level blind tasting exams and bring your tasting skills to the next level.
Developed by Master Sommelier David Glancy, this program is designed to enhance your blind wine analysis techniques like never before! Serious enthusiasts and professional wine students will taste over 30 manipulated samples to isolate wine flaws, sharpen their ability to assess structure and identify fruit, spice, herb, and oak aromas. In addition, students will taste over 20 unaltered wines from around the world to hone varietal and regional identification skills. Drills will include an emphasis on focus, timing, descriptions and conclusions.
Learn deductive tasting methodologies for upper exams with Society of Wine Educators, Court of Master Sommeliers, Wine & Spirit Education Trust and Institute of Masters of Wine.
Students focused on fine dining service or preparing for upper level sommelier exams are encouraged to also consider our Advanced Service Program.
