Besides gearing up for our annual Varsity Blind Tasting match against Cambridge, the Oxford Blind Tasting Society aims to encourage people to gain a better understanding of different wines while having a great time! Everyone is welcome, from complete beginners to experienced wine tasters. We offer beginners tastings at the beginning of every term to try and get people involved, where we taste a few reds and a few whites in a non-competitive, relaxed environment. We also have more specialized tastings for those who are considering becoming involved in the competitive side of blind tasting, or even just those who would like to take their interest further.
Blind tasting skills are fantastic to have, and the beginners tastings are perfect for people who love to drink wine but feel intimidated by the rhetoric associated with wine tasting. It is amazing how fast you can learn how to identify different wines just by paying attention to what you are drinking and coming to tastings!
