Alpana Singh says that wine tasting is like speed dating. The idea is that you know pretty much right away if the wine you’re sipping is going to work for you, just like you know if you want to date the person you’re talking to after a three-minute interlude.
I’m not entirely sold on speed dating, but I do agree with Alpana’s overall point. Wine tastings are a great way to learn about wine.
So Tammy and I made our way to Uncorked Chicago’s Winter Wine Tasting to try the wine and meet Alpana, who spoke at the event. We also went to the tasting because it gave us the perfect excuse to eat at Dine, the restaurant where the tasting was held.
Listen in to hear our mini-review of Dine (we can’t wait to go back!) and our impressions of this wine tasting and others.
