The Wine Trials

Sold out!
July 5 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Can you tell the difference between cheap wine and expensive wine?

This class is inspired by the Fearless Critic’s book, the Wine Trials, which sparked debate over its claim that non-expert wine drinkers preferred cheap bottles to more expensive bottles in scientific blind tastings.

In this class, we will put the critics to the test. Can a great $10 bottles taste better than an expensive one? Are 90+ point wines better? Come to this class and find out for yourself. You may be very surprised at the result!
