Palate Builder Class in Southern California
Visual Aid :} to demonstrate different taste bud sections of the human palate

Under this funny title two wine professionals will offer a series of six sessions in Orange County. Both instructors are well known to us as very competent and passionate about wine. They are David Scales, owner of MAWL, a wine store in Garden Grove, CA and Blue Danube Wine’s new sales representative for Southern California, Stetson Robbins.

In their promotional flyer for this innovative class they state: “Palate Builders is an in-depth, 6 week course designed to aid in your journey to identify what you like and why you like it. Our classes will help you to develop the faculties for understanding wine in a way that adds to the pleasure of buying wine, tasting it, analyzing it and sharing it with friends in a fun, casual and informative setting.

Our classes will take place at various restaurants through North Orange County on Monday evenings beginning August 4th. Each class is $50 and includes a tasting of 8-10 wines. We will have special guest speakers and guest winemakers. It is strongly encouraged that you sign-up for all 6 classes in the series as they are designed as one whole lesson, but it is not required.”

If you’d like to RSVP for the courses, or if you have further questions, please email David Scales at
