enjoying a blind wine tasting with us is all about debunking what think you like about a wine and enjoying an unpretentious tasting. you can expect to learn about why you like the wines you do and how to find more of them on your journey. you will arrive to a table set up with 6 covered wines, 6 pairing tasters, glasses, some plates of palate cleaners and some activity cards. we will start by explaining the rules of engagement - you don't need to know anything about wine to join in the fun - and we'll get to know each other a little. anywhere between 8 and 15 people can attend a tasting. the first step is to teach the algorithm jean about yourself and then to join the blind tasting event where you will give each wine you try a thumbs up or down. it's all about discovering wine you'll love. each wine will first tried on its own, and then paired with the taster. once you've tried it both ways you decide if you like it or not. once everyone has tried it we reveal what it was. prepare to be surprised! inbetween rounds of trying wines, we will have some fun activities that will help you get to know the other guests. one of our recent guests described the tasting as an inclusive not exclusive - the love of wine and trying new things - means you may start as strangers but you leave as fellow explorers.
hi! i'm lindsay, part of ask-jean, an ai tech start-up based in the shadow of table mountain, that recommends wine. i have been meeting strangers, and leaving them as friends since my days as a student selling books door-to-door in america. i've welcomed visitors to cape town since i was a kid working in the family business and i've worked with composers, artists, students, small businesses and most recently wine estates. ask-jean was founded by my husband, jan, who is equal parts data fiend and wine lover. we are joined by simon, our dutch fun seeker, who also hosts tastings upon occasion. we all work together to showcase the best of south african wine for your personal palate preferences. we can't wait to meet you! our customers love that we are send them home with the knowledge of how to find wines they'll love - you're next!
