Palate Builder - Taste Like A Pro! | LOFT218 - The LearnAboutWine Loft | Friday, 28. June 2019

PALATE BUILDER: Sensory Building Experience 

 Build your palate - Reinforce what you know - or learn it for the first time!

As much fun as you can have wine tasting!We pour 18 wines (more when we sell out) - Three wines at a time blind, we tell you what they are, what they smell like/taste like, but not tell you which glass they are in!  You work with your team to guess the right answers, along with trivia and other competitive games at the same time. This class helps develop tasting skills to help identify wines. It's fast, it's fun, it's delicious! Build your palate - reinforce and expand what you know or learn it for the first time.  This class is fun for everyone.

Aroma Training — smell wine differently with training
Tasting Vocabulary — get your wine game in gear
Old World Detection — stone, earth, etched acidity... like a fingerprint
New World Characteristics — fruit forward, use of wood, acid or underripe? 
Become Aware of Alcohol — oak, varietal (fruit), place, vintage variation
