Kicking off harvest season on the East End, Sediment & Sentiment will host a blind wine tasting class at The Halyard in Greenport on Sunday, October 1, at 4 PM. The class will include a three wine tasting flight as guests learn to identify wines through sight, smell, and taste, with all three wines hidden until the end of the tasting.
This educational — and fun — event is designed to leave participants feeling more confident in understanding and enjoying the wines in their glass. This event includes a sommelier-guided tasting with three wines provided by The Halyard and a S&S blind wine tasting format notepad.
“In founding Sediment & Sentiment, we wanted to focus on sustainable wines, how they’re better not just for the environment, but our own health as well,” shared co-founder and certified sommelier Jessica Green. “It’s a style of winemaking that’s long been popular abroad, and is really coming into its own on the East End. To really understand wine and deepen that connection between wine drinker and maker, blind tastings are a fun and educational way to explore sustainability.”
“Fall is a particularly magical time on the East End,” shared co-founder Rachel Bosworth. “The weather is just a bit cooler, but the water is still warm and the landscape is even more incredible. The Halyard in particular offers one of the most beautiful settings on the North Fork. And it’s more than a restaurant – the Sound View has been offering a number of unique programs to enhance the guest experience. We’re excited to be part of this ongoing commitment to their guests in October.”
The event, which takes place in The Halyard’s back dining room, surrounded by views of Long Island Sound, will offer guests an exploration in different styles of wine from across the globe. While learning how to properly taste wine, identify different characteristics and components, and the traits unique to various varietals, guests will also learn about the importance of sustainability in winemaking. The blind tasting method, also known as a deductive tasting, is an interactive, guided experience that can be enjoyed by all wine drinkers, regardless of experience level.
