Scott is back by popular demand with a new wine tasting series desgined to transform all wine buffs into true oenophiles!

Do you love wine but have a hard time describing the specific aromas and flavors? Are you a competitive person? If so… then this Blind Tasting Challenge is for you!

Your ability to taste a wine is highly dependent on your ability to smell. Did you know you can actually train your nose to be more sensitive to wine aromas?  

Develop your sense of smell as you match wits with your opponents and try to pick out the different sets of aromatic compounds found in some of your favorite classic French wines.

Scott Komplin found his passion for wine when his corporate job sent him to Sonoma, California on an extended project. A colleague invited him for a sparkling wine tasting at the beautiful Gloria Ferrer vineyards in the Carneros.  Sipping bubbles on the terrace of that gorgeous Spanish villa was all it took. Now 15 years later, Scott is a trained wine educator, receiving his education through the Wine & Spirit Education Trust in London.  Scott has traveled extensively to wine regions across the globe… tasting and touring famed producers in regions such as Champagne, Chablis, Burgundy, Gascogne, Okanagan, as well as through the Sonoma and Napa regions of California.
