ELVVAWS Oct 2019 Meeting: Super Tasting Masterclass

The next meeting of the East Las Vegas Valley Chapter of the American Wine Society is set for Thursday, October 10, 2019 at 6:30 p.m. at the Royal Crystal Event Center. Join us and experience a study in sensory evaluation…  This will be unlike any tasting we have done before, diving deep into the finer points of evaluating wines with Jay Bileti.  Jay will teach us how the brain processes sensory information, and how that translates into drinking wine.  It all matters: sight, smell, shape of glass, temperature….and Jay will help explain all that goes into enjoying the wine.  Don’t miss this extraordinary opportunity to study with an expert!

Jay has been closely involved with wine since he was a child (helping both of his Italian grandfathers make wine).  He is one of three International Wine Masters in the world. He has studied viticulture and winemaking around the world, is very active on the wine competition circuit and has written for multiple wine publications.
