Sometimes the wine tasting experience can leave you more confused about wine than when you first approached the cellar door. If you have trouble telling the difference between oxidisation and oaky tannins, terms like 'dry' and 'grassy', or even red and white varietals, look no further than Dans le Noir's Wine Tasting in the Dark.

Like the Dining in the Dark series, this one-off event will see participants sit down in complete darkness to enjoy an all-encompassing sensory experience.

The global phenomenon of dining in complete darkness was created in Switzerland by a blind clergyman. French organisation Dans le Noir (In the Dark) has been hosting eyeless events at Rydges Auckland since March. The absence of sight awakens senses and enables guests to completely reevaluate their perception of taste and smell.

Across two hours, guests will swirl, sniff and slurp six of the best-ranked Pinot Noir from New Zealand accompanied by matching canapés. The experience will allow tasters to ignore hue and preconceptions with bottle design and purely focus on the senses.
