Tasting Tuesdays

  • 343 Baronne Street New Orleans, LA, 70112 United States

"Wine speaks to all the senses: the eyes behold the color, tone and shade; the nose, the bouquet; the fingers and lips caress the cool crystal; the ears delight in the subtle swishing of the liquid; the tongue rejoices in the reward of a rich harvest."
~Mary Lou Collins Posch

Black Men With Beards is sponsoring an interactive fun and engaging wine tasting experience, led by industry expert Robert Haynes with sounds by T-Ray the Violinist & live painting by AK the Artist.

Aiming to give you a deeper appreciation of classic, prestigious wines from various regions, all while diving glass deep into the mysteries and myths of wine tasting and food pairing.

Tasting Tuesday's 3 Part Series will include:

  • Wine making & Tasting 101
  • A Taste of the New World: USA and Southern Hemisphere
  • A Taste of the Old World: Europe and Beyond

Learn about the wine making process, ordering, bottle opening and everyone's favorite part - TASTING of course! Your pallet will be privy to 6 different wine selections of unique and intense flavors from around the world, along with the proper food selection for each.
For each Tasting Tuesday we introduce a new art form or cause.

Our host Robert Haynes just finished harvest at Siduri, an artisan winery in Sonoma County, California, where he further developed his wine making skills. Haynes is a real wine educator with years of experience. He teaches for beginners and the advanced wine lovers.
Haynes passed the Introductory Court of Masters Sommelier exam and is currently studying for his certification. Haynes is currently enrolled into the University of California - Davis' Wine making program and is expected to graduate in 2018.
