Event Overview

*This is a continuing class. Please sign up after having taken "Wine Tasting Like A Pro."


Fruit, Earth, Wood. Is that stone fruit you smell, or a hint of honeydew? Slate, or limestone? Your first wine tasting class has made you realize two things: 1. You don't eat nearly enough fruit and 2. you definitely haven't licked any rocks recently.

In this class, continuing Dabblers will practice smelling and tasting the weird things classically used to describe wine, side by side with the wine itself. What the heck do currants taste like anyway? Has anyone ever actually seen a quince? Save the embarrassment of sniffing the ground next time you visit a little alpine village, or the leather chair in the study next time you visit grandpa -- we'll have wet rocks, woodchips and cigar boxes for your inhaling pleasure ... all in the privacy of a classroom where other people are doing it, too.

Let's get weird.

    This class took us through two blind tastings, one white and one red, and gave us a chance to taste actual food and mineral items that are normally present in wines so as to help us identify what was actually in our glasses. For example, picking out lime specifically, rather than simply calling a flavor "citrus," was made easy because we had lemons, limes, grapefruit and orange wedges to try along with our wine. TC had even boiled slate and limestone so we could taste the water it had been boiled in - what a fantastic idea!
