At-Home Blind Wine Tasting

At-Home Blind Wine Tasting at MiraCosta College has completed its run of four class sessions. Thank you to all who participated. One day soon we will be back in a classroom setting at the MiraCosta College San Elijo campus in Cardiff by the Sea. Cheers!

That’s a wrap!

Bordeaux Master Level

I have attained a new certification from the Wine Scholar Guild called Bordeaux Master Level. This is great timing to support the upcoming French wine class at MiraCosta this fall, along with the planned Bordeaux wine class at MiraCosta (coming in 2021). Bring on the French wine!

Happy Birthday Sylvia!

How do you hold a wine party during a pandemic? Easy. Hire KutaSomm. Sylvia celebrated her birthday this week in Carlsbad, complete with curated wines, education, and entertainment. Everyone gathered outside by the spectacular fireplace, wore masks (except when eating or drinking), and sat 6 feet apart. The Mediterranean theme was chosen because the birthday girl was planning a trip to Greece after the pandemic ends. The party enjoyed wines from coastal Mediterranean regions including Languedoc (France), Provence (France), Jumilla (Spain), Basilicata (Italy), and Peloponnese (Greece). Happy Birthday Sylvia.

Wine Ninjas Strike Cardiff, Encinitas, and Carlsbad

The Wine Ninjas strike Cardiff, Encinitas, and Carlsbad! The first session of the MiraCosta College Community Education course At-Home Blind Wine Tasting was a complete success. The Wine Ninjas fanned out across the North County Coastal area, providing home delivery services in a stealthy fashion. Did you see a wine ninja on your street? Some patrons opted for the pickup option, picking up a hand-made K-box (the ‘K’ stands for KutaSomm) to take home. More fun is in store in the coming weeks. Look out for the Wine Ninjas!

Wine Ninja Strikes Del Mar, This Time With Food

The Wine Ninja, this time two Ninjas, struck Del Mar again this past weekend. With this final test of the Wine Ninja concept, all the kinks have been worked out. The next Wine Ninja event will be a summertime virtual class at MiraCosta College. Do you want the Wine Ninja to visit your home? Then sign up for the class! Details coming soon.
