Introducing a Wine Tasting Masterclass Series by The Tasting Class
This series is designed for intermediate to advanced level wine drinkers who want to take more of a deep dive into some of the great regions and wines around the world and, where possible, will utilise a more premium level of wine to support the tasting.
Wine Tasting Masterclass #1 - Bordeaux
Bordeaux is the largest and, many would say, the greatest wine region of the world. Steeped in history and covering some 120,000 hectares of vines in 54 appellations with more than 8,500 producers or châteaux, the quality and rich diversity of Bordeaux wines is undeniable.
What do the Wine Tasting Masterclasses Include?
Sample serving of 6 premium wines representing key relevant styles, varieties and qualities
A selection of light snacks – (please register any allergies)
Advanced level wine tasting lesson by The Tasting Class
The wine tasting masterclasses are more of a classroom-style tasting. They are suitable for intermediate to advanced level wine-lovers seeking a higher level of wine education, but will still be fun and interactive like all other events by The Tasting Class.
Six wine samples will be served with a WSET advanced/diploma level sommelier leading an in-depth tasting while discussing the quality, production methods, and so on. Throughout the tasting lesson, the sommelier will talk about the history, geography, climate, and relevant labelling terminology, too. While we will show some entry-level wines where relevant to the lesson, more premium wines will be shared at these tastings, and wine samples are portioned suitably for a tasting of this nature (it’s not a brunch ). A selection of nibbles and water is also included.
