Don your mask for a blind tasting of Coppola wines at the Space Needle in Seattle

At the Space Needle in Seattle, members of the media and VIPs were invited to a Tasting In The Dark of Francis Ford Coppola wines. This sensory experience challenged guests to pick out aromas of base flavors then a flight of 4 of the company's bottlings - all while blindfolded. Hobey Wedler, a graduate student working toward his PhD in Chemistry (and blind since birth) led the group through the experience.
