Over the past 20 years there has been a trend moving towards cleaner and more grape-typical wines. A Cabernet Sauvignon smells and tastes in a special way, just like the Riesling grape almost always has a light fragrance of petroleum when it ages.
In practical wine tastings, with one grape in focus on each occasion, we locate the characteristic traits for each variety. Of course there are differences which we also appreciate and underline. In each wine tasting we also add a wild card, a wine that doesn’t match the others. In this way there’s a challenge in finding differences and similarities.
The tasting is done blind and sessions can comprise for example: three European Riesling wines and two from the New World alternatively Chardonnay from Bourgogne, Chablis and California. Find the unique traits and their similarities.
Our wine tastings can be carried out as a single activity or in conjunction with a cooking activity.
