Perfect for restaurateurs, regular dinner-party hosts and lovers of wine, this wine appreciation course will provide you with a solid foundation in wine tasting and appreciation. At each of the six sessions, six wines, brought by wine-makers and personalities from respected wine estates, will be tasted and talked about. (These will be available on the night at discounted prices through Wine Concepts in Newlands.)
Red and white grape varieties will be discussed to give you an idea of how the wine’s flavours are developed. Everything from viognier, chardonnay, shiraz and pinot noir, as well as bubbly, dessert wine and port, will be covered. The R750 course fee includes tutored wine-tasting, lectures and tasting sheets. Naturally, the environment will be a relaxed one, during which you can ask questions – it’s a wonderful way to (learn to) appreciate wine, among other wine lovers.
