How well do you know your wines? How well do you even know white wine from red wine?!

 

Wente Vinyards is your next stop destination for a unique adventure. It’s located in Livermore, a city in Alameda County, and is less than an hour from San Francisco.

Wente Vineyards has excellent reviews on Trip Advisor, and for good reason! Today it is set on over 2,000 acres of land. The founders helped to establish Livermore Valley, which is now known as one of the primer wine-growing areas of California.

 

There are countless fun things to do at this vineyards venue. The entire estate is full service and more. There is a golf course, a catering service, and concerts in the summer.

 Don’t forget about the wine tasting! Perhaps the most enticing part of Wente Vineyards is the variety of wines available to try and the style in which you can try them. The most exciting tasting experience and class is the Black Glass Blind Tasting.

 

Crazy name, right?

 

But it’s exactly what it sounds like! Wine is poured in black wine glasses for everyone to try. The wine glasses are so black and so opaque that you can’t tell what the color is. The fun is to use your senses and your previous knowledge to guess: red or white?

 

Without your eyesight, it’s not easy! Can your rely on your taste buds and your sense of smell to get it right? If you think you can, then you should definitely try this unique tasting experience out. It also makes for a fun time with friends, as a gift to a wine lover or enthusiast, or with your significant other.

 

Much like the “dining in the dark concept”, blind black glass wine tasting is just as challenging, but in a more sophisticated setting. Keep in mind you aren’t actually blindfolded. It’s just for fun! Discuss, ponder, and savor the experience.
