SESSION 1: UNDERSTANDING WINE COMPONENTS
In this advanced-level workshop, students will refine their wine tasting ability through exploration of essential wine components including acid, tannin, sugar, alcohol and body. Laboratory samples and finished wines will be used to better understand the origin of these components and how to more accurately identify them on the palate.
SESSION 2: UNDERSTANDING WINE AROMAS AND FLAVORS
In this advanced-level workshop, students will build their ability to identify wine aromas and flavors in a series of interactive exercises. Instruction will include discussion of how aroma precursors develop during grape growing and ripening and how these precursors are developed during winemaking and maturation. A great opportunity to develop your tasting skills and better understand the origin of classic wine aromas.
Who should attend this course: This workshop assumes an understanding of wine tasting technique and is ideal for students who have completed WSET Wine Certification Courses, the Introduction to Wine Series, Palate Primer Class or have a comparable understanding of wine basics.
About the instructor: Regina Daigneault is a wine educator with over 35 years in the wine industry as a sommelier, wine director and sales manager.
