Description

1-Day Professional Wine Tasting Workshop for Professional wine students and serious wine enthusiasts will cover the following topics:

  • The concept of “Cause & Effect,” the why behind the reason any wine looks, smells, and taste the way it does. 
  • How to connect the dots between cause and effect and wine quality. 
  • The concept of “impact compounds,” the small subset of aromas and flavors that are the vital key in identifying classic grapes and wines—and vital to anyone becoming a professional taster—and equally important in success in upper level tasting exams. 
  • How to accurately and consistently assess the structural elements in any wine—the levels of acidity, alcohol, and tannin.
  • The most common wine faults, how to identify them, and how important context is to certain wine faults. 
  • The definition to a myriad of advanced wine terms.
  • Advanced strategies for olfactory and palate memory.
  • Strategies for confidence in taking exams.
