Think you know wine?

Wine nerds jonesing for a live tasting event at which to wax erudite can find solace online with the crew from WineAlign. The Toronto-based wine-rating consortium puts ace tasters David Lawrason, Sara d’Amato, Michael Godel and John Szabo on live Zoomcasts for blind wine tastings. The antics are as elucidating as they are entertaining. You register ahead of time and receive the list of wines — but, shhhhh, you are trusted to keep it secret. Buy the wines, taste along, and watch the pros sweat and second-guess… and often discern pretty darn accurately what’s in the glass. This is wine nerd heaven, and a heck of a lot of fun.
