Blinded for Taste with Coppola Winery and Chicago’s Trellis

Diamond in the Dark - Chicagonista

Diamond In The Dark

Coppola Winery held a special event in Chicago to show us a special way in dissecting the many flavors of what wine is consist of. To make the event more special, the tasting was hosted by by the winery’s very own talented, Henry Wedler, a blindchemistry graduate student who has hosted the “Tasting in the Dark” experience at the Winery since he helped to establish the program in 2011. Each guest will have individual cheese plates to enhance the food and wine pairing experience that followed a buffet luncheon at the Michael Jordan Steakhouse. The event is definitely an eye-opening experience. It was a delightful way to experience a Coppola Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Noir, & Cabernet Sauvignon.
