Description

Can you tell the difference between red and white wine? Of course you can! But what if we hide the colour?

The fun, interactive Sensory Introduction to Wine Tasting Masterclass starts with a blind ISO Wine Glasses Tasting tasting.  (Meaning you dont know what wine you are tasting.)  This introduction to Wine Tasting will teach you to trust your nose and palate rather than the visual aspect that most of us rely on.

Did you know that main grape varieties always have the same flavours and aromas wherever they are grown in the world – Pinot Noir smells of Strawberries and Sauvignon Blanc reminds us of Elderflower and Gooseberry. We will use physical props (fruits, herbs, spices) to bring alive the aromas of some of the varieties that we taste.

Using carefully selected wines that have opposing characteristics we will teach you the building blocks of taste including sweetness, acidity, acid and tannins. You will be introduced to the Wine Tasting Tool of the Wine world by using the Systematic Approach to Wine tasting and learn the difference between:

  • new world and old world
  • cheap and expensive wines
  • old and young wine

Finally we demystify the dark art of food and drink pairing. Don’t expect a three course meal, but the samples provided will teach you why some wines are ‘food wines’ (pretty dull alone but awe inspiring with food) and other wines are better glugged ice cold.

After the Sensory Introduction to Wine Tasting, you will never look at a glass of wine the same.
