i just took the advanced pretest today and feel like I bombed. I took the course six months ago, but Am pretty sure I have a long way to go before I get into the exam. I am interested in a group that will not only taste together, but also study. Any takers?
I’m studying for Certified so I may not be of much help on theory but I’ll take any chance I can get to practice tasting, and perfectly willing to throw in the possibility that I’d bring Corvina, carmemere, cab franc, and Gruner since those are testable for you
If you’re interested feel free to text me at 9739036979 or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Could be cool to do a study group and taste non-blind together and taste the wines of the study topic. Could even be partially blind if you're studying an important region like say Burgundy and everyone brings a different village so you know the grapes but the appellation is blind.
I have also applied for the Advanced Exam in 2019 and am looking for a tasting/study group in NYC.
Feel free to email me if you'd like to speak further about getting something going.
I look forward to hearing from you.
