Just wanted to invite anyone that is pursuing a certification through the Court of Master Sommeliers in LAS VEGAS to join our study group. We meet twice a week to study wine theory and do blind tastings. This is for all levels- Intro, Certified, Advanced, Master.
We have decided to formalize our meetings on Sundays & Wednesdays. The weekly study topics will follow the outline I've attached in preparation for Certified (see FB group for this outline).
WEDNESDAYS we will discuss theory from a specific region, and drink wine from that specific region to help connect the theory. No blind tasting.
SUNDAYS will be blind tasting from the same region discussed on Wednesday, but we will also throw in another blind wine from a different region of the same varietal to do a compare and contrast. EX: California cabernet vs Left bank Medoc Cabernet. These will be blind so we can really dial in the differences by comparison.
You may be asked to bring a bottle of wine from that region (doesn't have to be expensive).
Sunday: 4pm-7pmWednesday: 6pm-9pm
The hopes are that having a more structured format will help you plan your schedule. We would like to see more people in the group become active and engaged. Let's build this community!
Join the group and introduce yourself!
Awesome! Just joined the FB group. Would be happy to offer my gallery space at Downtown Summerlin as a venue for the study group on Wednesdays.
