April 24, 2013 we held an interactive master class "Wine Training"
Although this kind of event had been conducted for the first time, we were very happy with the results!
Together with the guests we examined wine labels, trying to find differences between the bottles of Old and New World. Also both, single grape variety and blended wines had been tasted.
The experience mentioned above was useful not only for general development, but also for the "blind tasting", which took place at the end of the evening. Three grape varieties: Carmenere, Sangiovese and Shiraz were suggested to our guests to guess. Carmenere was guessed at once, but the other two were guessed later. Finally, at the end of the evening all varieties had been identified and the most active guests went home with prizes!
Dear friends, we would like to thank you all for sharing with us this lovely evening! Your opinion is very important for us. Our team expresses special thanks to you all for drawing up of ratings.
