February 21, 2020

Blind tasting wine is both complex and requires humility. It implies putting one's skills on the line with no other safety net than one's knowledge and ability to reason. "Being a sommelier means being on a constant learning curve, travelling and meeting winegrowers out in the field", explained German sommelier Marc Almert on 12 February at Vinexpo Paris. The World's 2019 Best Sommelier, and sommelier at the Baur restaurant on Lake Zurich, offered valuable advice on blind tasting for wine enthusiasts and industry members.
