Wine Tasting Challenge: New World Icons
June 22, 2018 @ 7:30 pmAED200
Test your skills at this social tasting, where you have to use your nose and the clues to figure out what each glass is.
Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, South America and the USA are just new to wine production when compared to how long Europe have been at it, but they’re bringing they’re up to the challenge of making drops that compete with the Old World Classics.
Come taste six of the most famous grapes from their most famous New World homes, learn what’s so special about them, choose your favourites, and try to guess where they came from using the clue’s from our sommelier.
About The Monthly Blind Tasting:
Blind tasting wines is when you don’t know what you’re drinking so you can really taste free from bias. It makes for a fun conversation with your new friends, plus there is an interactive lesson is provided by The Tasting Class.
How it Works:
We sit at social tables of 10. Six different covered mystery bottles of wine are shared by everyone at the table.
We’ll teach some tips on tasting like a pro, and give some insight into the evening’s theme. Everyone will then have some time to blind taste the wines and try to guess what they are drinking using the clues provided and their own sense of smell and taste.
After everyone tastes all the wines we will vote for our favourite, then reveal the wines one by one. The sommelier will give a quick lesson on each wine as each bottle is revealed.
Taste and discuss with everyone at the table, learn about wine, vote and enjoy some snacks and socializing.
- A bar will be open upon arrival to warm you up for the main tasting.
- Cheese and other snacks are included.
