For each of the 4 selected wines at each of the 4 tasting locations, guests will learn a basic systematic approach to tastings. We will begin with an appearance assessment where we will assess the color of the wine. Next will be the aroma assessment; one of the greatest pleasures of wine tasting is their aromas - learning about their intensity and the development of primary, secondary and tertiary notes. Each guest will have a chart of basic wine aromas to help assist them in olfactory recognition. To finish, proper palate assessment of the wine will be conducted, where guests will learn about flavor intensity, sweetness, acidity, tannins, body and flavor characteristics.
