My company, SommSelect, offers a program ($199 per month) that is designed to teach anyone how to taste wines blind. Each month, the recipient receives a six-pack of wines containing three whites and three reds wrapped in black tissue paper and numbered one through six. Enclosed are instructions for blind tasting as well as guidance for learning the specific attributes of every classic region and varietal in the world. (sommselect.com)
