Blind tasting with Dana Gaiser and Morgan Harris from Esquire Network’s Uncorked

Join Dana Gaiser and Morgan Harris, two of NYC’s most accomplished sommeliers and allow them to teach you the art of Blind Tasting. Both Dana and Morgan will deductively taste four wines blind with your help and of course they will have no clue on what country, region, grape, and vintage the wines are. Be ready to learn some of their secrets on how to taste like a pro!

Understanding the beauty and diversity of Sake with America’s top importer Joto Sake

Joto Sake continues to be one of the leading importers of Sake into the US. This is a special fast track seminar marking the first appearance of Sake at Wine on Wheels! The Joto Sake experts will help lead you to understand, simplify and choose the best Sake for your palate. You don't want to miss this great opportunity.

Why you need to drink more Natural Wine with Master Sommelier Pascaline Lepeltier

Not only is Pascaline Lepeltier a Master Sommelier and Wine Director of Rouge Tomate but she is also one of the greatest ambassadors of Chenin Blanc and Natural Wine. Pascaline spread the Gospel of Natural Wine well before it became a hot topic, so it goes without saying that 20 minutes with her will get you hooked!
2:00pm - 2:30pm

What’s new in Australia! With Melbourne native and co-founder of Little Peacock Imports Gordon Little

Australia’s native son Gordon Little will take you on a tour of Australia and introduce you to small hands on producers that you may have never heard of. These off the beaten path wines show the brilliance and Terroir that Australia has to offer. 

The Fortified Wines of the Languedoc-Roussillon with Jamal Rayyis of Sud de France and chocolates from Jean Francois Bonnet of Tumbador Chocolate

Last but not least, for our last fast track seminar, we bring you some of the best fortified wines made in the world from the Languedoc-Rousillon paired with Brooklyn made Chocolates from Jean Francois Bonnet. Sud de France will give you a breakdown from how the wine is made to when it is bottled. We think this is the best way to end the day!
