Bottle Preparation for Blind Tasting
It is important to wrap the bottle in a manner that obscures the identification while ensuring that the wrapping does not slip off the bottle.
On a 3×5 inch index card, record the following before wrapping the bottle:
Name of Winery or Chateau
Type of Wine (e.g. Zinfandel)
Proprietary Name, if any (e.g. Special Reserve)
Price You Paid
Where You Bought It
Remove the neck foil. Prepare a piece of aluminum foil 12 inches wide and about 15 inches long. On a flat surface, place the bottle on the foil’s shiny side up, then follow illustrations below.
