A year in the other Cambridge

Wine snob (in training!)

1 Comment

Tonight I went to the first class of the Cambridge University Blind Wine Society, where they train you to drink wine “blind”–i.e. not knowing anything about the wine before tasting and trying to deduce what you’re drinking down to grape varietal, region, year.

I now have my official wine tasting glasses (complete with nifty carrying case) and a stained sheet full of incoherent tasting notes.

There are 4 more classes this term, so maybe by the time I go home for Christmas, I’ll be a pro wine snob! But first, I need to learn to eat before going to wine tasting class…
