This fun and educational in-classroom class is ideal for people who want to learn more about smelling and tasting wine like the pros. You will learn the basics about the wine grape, wine production and the main aromas/flavors found in an array of different wines from around the world. Our mission is to help you develop your own aroma “memory bank” through actually smelling and tasting wine aroma descriptors. By the end of this class, you will be amazed at what your nose can do.
Wine tasting can be intimidating, but not in this class. We will guide you through the basic techniques, increasing your wine sensory skills in a relaxed environment.
By taking this course, we guarantee you will have fun while learning about how to be a better taster! During this 90 minute class, you will:
– Learn techniques to develop your sense of smell and taste.
– Smell, taste and explore over 20 food and non-food descriptors* commonly found in wine.
– Learn where aromas come from and how they smell in the glass.
– Identify aromas and flavors by tasting 7 different wines of all different styles.
– Become more confident in your ability to taste and describe wines.
– Improve your ability to describe the wines you’re tasting and what wines you love!
We’re excited for you to join us and learn more about sensory exploration in wine! Not only for wine enthusiasts, this class is paramount for those looking to begin or continue their WSET, WSG or CMS wine certifications.
