What’s it all about?
Lost in the bottle shop again? Take this 75 minute class to get the low down on how to taste, talk about and evaluate wine. In a single class you’ll go from a wine novice to a dinner party hero. And you’ll have a good few glasses along the way.
What will we cover?
An introductory, informal wine appreciation class, this palate trainer session covers the basics in a relaxed & fun way. Learn about grape varieties, wine styles and gain some insight into the structural elements of wine by focusing in on the role of acidity, sugar and tannin. We’ll taste six wines in three pairs, each with its role to play and story to tell.
Who will be teaching?
Clare Burder is the director and founder of Eminence Wines – a boutique wine label from the King Valley, and The Humble Tumbler – a small Melbourne based business focused on wine education and events.
Clare’s speciality is teaching the basics of wine appreciation in an accessible, interactive and informative way, without all the fancy wine guff.
