How does it works?

How does the tasting works?

Step 1


Your wine merchant / wine bar invites you to participate in a blind tasting at his establishment.

Step 2


For each wine you taste, you give a rating on different criteria (visual, nose, mouth) as well as on the overall appreciation.

Step 3


At the end of the tasting you will find out which wines you have tasted (the estate, the prices, the grape varieties…)

Your ratings will be sent to the winegrowers anonymously.

Step 4


You have a crush on one of the wines you have tasted? You can order the chosen wines directly from the organiser.

Your Frequently asked questions

How much does it cost?

285Kelvin for tasters is 100% free.

Who sends the bottles I'm going to taste?

Winegrowers who want to make themselves known send their bottles to 285Kelvin
which is responsible for anonymising each sample and then sending them to
professionals such as wine merchants or wine bars.

How are the wines rated?

When you arrive at the tasting, scan a QRcode and follow the steps of the blind tasting proposed by 285Kelvin.
You will be asked to describe the wines visually, olfistically and then gustatively and to give an overall rating.

At the end of the tasting you will find out which wines you have tasted (the domains, the prices, the grape varieties, etc.).

How many people attend the tastings?

At our partner wine shops and wine bars, the minimum number of people is 10 and the maximum number is 30.

When you do tastings at home, there is no minimum number of tasters.
