Finding the Perfect Match - FULLY BOOKED!

Food can be really tricky when paired with wine due to its complex mix of flavours and tastes. During this session, we will explore how the key components in food – acidity, salt, umami and sweetness – impact the way we taste wine. We will go through specific food samples and see how each of them can change the way the wine in the glass tastes. We will discover the key golden rules of food and wine matching that can be applied to any menu or wine list and that can help us to find the perfect match for our dining occasions with friends and customers.

Deciphering Wine Labels - 8 PLACES LEFT!

Do you ever panic about picking the wrong bottle when sitting in a restaurant or buying a wine in a shop? Confused by "Grand Cru", "Classico Superiore" and "Gran Reserva" terms? After this session, labels won´t be any mistery for you anymore. Discover how to properly understand a wine label and how to make the right predictions about the wine in the bottle to gain the confidence to choose what you’re looking for. During our sessions, we will go through 3 different bottles of wine, reading the key labeling terms and making assumptions about the expected wine style. We will then taste the wines to verify whether our predictions were right.

Mastering Maturation - FULLY BOOKED!

Have you ever wondered why a wine can smell of butter and bread dough or vanilla and coconut compared to another wine which just tastes as pure and fruity as it is? After this session, you will be able to understand how specific choices made by a winemaker in the winery can affect the style of a wine and how ageing wines in barrels and bottles can impact the taste of the wine you drink. We will taste 3 different styles of wine, at different stage of maturation, focusing on what in the winery made each wine so different in terms of structure and aromatic profile.
