Wines For Humanity's professional wine advisers lead in-home tastings that teach guests the finer points of a five-point wine-tasting technique, all while raising funds for local charities. As students sip several exclusive vintages, they learn to judge wines' colors, aromas, and voting records, as well as pick out suitable food pairings. Before the tasting event, Wines For Humanity will bring glasses to the home while selected wines will be delivered by a local retailer in the state of Michigan, and hosts are encouraged to prepare complementary cheese and crackers. The average value of the wines included in the tasting is $20 per bottle.
