Advanced Wine Tasting Class, February 10, 2024, 1-3 pm
Have you always wanted to be one of those folks who can say, “I’m picking up a hint of cassis in this wine”? This class will start you on the path to being able to say stuff like that with confidence…and actually know what you’re talking about!
What You’ll Learn
In the Advanced Wine Tasting class we’ll dive deeper into the aromas and tastes associated with different types of wines. Building on what you learned in our Intro class (although not a pre-requisite) you’ll learn how to identify different levels of acids, sugars and tannins in wine and how they work harmoniously together (or not).
You’ll then learn how to identify the most common aromas of both red and white wines using a sensory panel of aroma-spiked wines. Finally, you’ll apply all of this knowledge to tasting and identifying blinded wines.
We’re excited about this class. Of all the wine classes I’ve taken, I’ve always found the sensory classes the most fun and useful. Not only will you be training your nose to identify the different wine aromas, but we’ll be fine turning ours noses too with the same sensory panels of wines.
What You Need to Bring
Just you senses. You can take this class on its own, but the Intro class will be helpful.
This class will be held Saturday February 10, 2024, from 1 to 3 pm at the Wineworks. The price for this class is a reasonable $50 per person. Seating is very limited so act now! If you’d like to attend, just click the link below to sign-up.
NOTE: When I first took a class like this, entire class used the same set of spiked sample glasses to smell from. I guess those days are gone…and I have seen folks blowing out birthday candles again. Bottomline, we just don’t have enough glasses or big enough tables to make a set 18 individual sample glasses for each person. So let me know who you’re comfortable sharing the sample glasses with. We will only be smelling from them, not drinking from them.
