“Truly, one of the most excellent wine experiences I’ve ever had.” The Guardian

Why we love it

Grapes are very clever little fruits. Regardless of where they are grown in the world, the main grape varieties always have the same flavours and aromas. So, Pinot Noir hints at notes of strawberry, whereas Sauvignon Blanc is more likely to elicit flavours of elderflower and gooseberry. The question is, would you be able to tell these wines apart if you didn’t know what colour they were? This experience is all about discovering wines beyond what the eye can see…

What's Included?

  • Learn about the subtle differences between wines with a Sensory Introduction to Wine Tasting for two at the London Wine Academy
  • Discover how to tell the difference between red and white wine, without seeing the colour
  • Use the Systematic Approach to Wine Tasting, a tool for professional wine tasters
  • Decipher which wines are new world or old world; cheap or expensive and old or young
  • Pair the wines with carefully selected snacks to showcase which wines work best with food

Description

The London Wine Academy is all about promoting knowledge. Their aim is to steer wine-lovers in the direction of relying on their own judgements and refining their palates. If you can taste wine like a professional, they have done their job!

During your Sensory Introduction to Wine Tasting, you’ll have the opportunity to learn from a qualified sommelier, guiding you through the wine tasting process, pointing out ways to discover more about each wine. You’ll start with a blind ISO tasting, immediately having to learn how to put your visual sense aside and, instead, rely on your nose and palate.

With the assistance of fruits, herbs and spices, you’ll learn how to spot the different flavours, as their aromas are brought to life. Using the Systematic Approach to Wine Tasting, a tool for professional sommeliers, you’ll decipher which wines are new world or old world; cheap or expensive and old or young.

What is wine without food, you say? That’s a good question. After learning a little more about the nuances of each wine, you’ll notice which wines need food to help them come alive, and which work better sipped on their own, by enjoying a wine and food pairing. It’s safe to say that after this course, you’ll be well on your way to impressing your friends with your wine expertise!
