"Taste Like A Pro...Syrah/Shiraz" - Our Next Wine Workshop 06 October


Please come and join us for our next wine workshop designed to explore the regional particularities of Syrah/Shiraz as a "Noble" grape varieties.

Expanding on our highly popular workshop "How To Taste Like A Pro", this class will also help us learn the specific "markers" that enable a wine pro to identify the variety in a blind tasting.

Using a systematic approach to tasting, we will also be able to pinpoint origin, evaluate quality, and recognize the wine making techniques used to craft each wine.

This class is designed for wine lovers with advanced levels of tasting knowledge in particular those who have participated to our previous "How To Taste" workshops as well as WSET students Level 3 and Level 4.

Our classes are limited to 12 people for optimum quality interaction between participants. We aim to increase the understanding and appreciation of wine, not solely to pass an exam.

In our session on 06 October, we will taste the best examples from Côte-Rotie, Cornas, Barossa, Hunter Valley, California, Stellenbosch.
