AN AMERICAN IN CHAMPAGNE From my seat’s view as a competitor in the World Blind Tasting…
The World Blind Wine Tasting Competition is sponsored by the French wine magazine, La Revue du Vin de France! Thirty-five countries’ teams are invited to compete against each other for the title of:
World Blind Wine Tasting Champion! Twelve unmarked wines are served to each team, consisting of 5 professionals; the teams have ten minutes per wine to respond with their knowledge by naming the grape variety, the country of origin, the region of origin, the producer, and the vintage. All this in only ten minutes per wine. This truly requires a team to have deep knowledge of wine grape varieties, where they grow, terroir (weather conditions, topography, soil structures) viticulture, enology and intense concentration and sense memory which comes from the olfactory bulb.
The USA Wine Tasting team is the first and only all-woman team and consists of professional women, from winemakers to Certified Sommeliers, to educators, award-winning journalists & spokespersons – each of these women are bringing their knowledge and passion to the table. Get to know them here. Click here to meet the team.
The USA Wine Tasting Team is securing their 501 C-3 certifications for sponsorship donations. The sponsorship donations will assist in the team’s travel costs, accommodations, entry fees, practice wines, documentary, and help support their mission for educational programs.
The international World Blind Wine Tasting Competition takes place on October 14, 2023, in Provence, France. The competition will be broadcast and streamed, live, globally. The USA Wine Tasting Team will face off with over 36 other country’s teams for the WORLD title. The team is, this year as well as in 2022, the first all-female team to enter this competition!

The team consists of ladies who met as volunteer wine judges for a Wine Competition in 2021. As wine professionals, their paths regularly cross at wine-related events. The group is working to secure their 501 C-3 certification for donations that will assist in covering the travel costs, accommodations, entry fees, practice wines, and more. The international competition is on October fourteenth in Provence, France, where they will face up to thirty-six other countries for the best in the WORLD title and trophy. In 2021, they were the first all-female team to enter this competition! As their proctor, I know their dedication, experience and strategy will make them strong contenders!!
