Workshop Description

Master Sommelier David Glancy helps students tackle the most challenging flights of sparkling wines, fortified wines and non-fortified dessert wines. Learn to identify the similarities and differences in each wine and discuss the major regions and styles globally. Decipher what differences are derived from grape variety, terroir, vineyard practices, winemaking or aging.

This workshop is part of the Advanced Blind Tasting program.
