Tasting Like a Pro

When someone asks you about a wine’s aromas and flavors, is your only answer ‘I don’t know’? Let’s leave the long explanations using bizarre, even inedible adjectives to the wine connoisseurs. For this wine class, you can expect to broaden your tasting expertise to describe a wine solely based on it’s aromas and flavors. There is no fruit in wine besides fermented grape juice; and yet, some wines smell distinctly like strawberry as opposed to blackberry or vice versa, even for a new wine drinker.

In this class, we aim to compare wines side-by-side with fruits, spices and aromatic objects to see if you can spot the similarities between the two. Broaden your wine vocabulary by experiencing black pepper, white flowers, honey and vanilla among others and see which wines you smell and taste them in. Ever heard of Gewürztraminer? How about lychees? Come taste them side by side (one is a wine, the other is a fruit) and see if you won’t be amazed at the likeness in flavor.
