This Wednesday, I was luckily a part of wine lovers in Amsterdam to enjoy a blind tasting, which @winesnobs.amsterdam
arranged. It was the member's first meeting (at least for me), and we brought one bottle each. It was perfectly well-organized, in which four whites and five reds were served by excellent order, and delicious wine snacks, handmade pizza, and desserts were prepared.
The bottles wine lovers brought were unique (challenging to guess the region and variety) and fantastic.

By the way, in the exam of the WSET Diploma, I had been training myself to focus on quality assessment without deciding on a region or variety by the wine itself. The correct answer for the region and variety accounts for just 2 points out of 20 for wine. We had a clue for each flight with three wines, for example, same variety, same country, same region, and so on. Instead, We can more theoretically guess the answer with all three wines. My training worked for the exam but should be insufficient to reach a result to get a region, variety, and wine by tasting itself. Now, I have re-started to do tasting training for something else!
Anyway, it was precious time for me. Thank you for inviting me to the group! I am looking forward to the next meeting😘
