Welcome to the blind side -- of wine tasting.

Morton's, one of the main steakhouses along Northern Boulevard's prime row, hosts a seminar on wine tasting on Wednesday,  April 7. The session costs $49 and goes from 6  to 7:30 p.m. The seminar will be conducted by Sara Fasolino, Morton's sommelier and beverage manager.

"Blind tasting" means you don't see either the label or the shape of the wine bottle. Many critics evaluate wines this way because it's morel likely to result in an unbiased opinion. Participants in the seminar will learn how it works.

For $150, you also can take part in a wine conversation with Fasolino at a three-course wine dinner following the seminar.

Morton's is at 777 Northern Blvd., Great Neck; 516-498-2950.
