A new way of group tasting
Calling all wine students and wine lovers that want to learn how to taste better while having some fun at the same time. Tasting in group and calibrating your tasting notes against others is one of the best ways to learn how to taste. Unfortunately with all the Covid restrictions, tastings are getting scarce and less joyful, and not everyone lives near a tasting group. And although there are many virtual wine events, most are “dry” in both meanings of the word: there is no wine provided and there is very little interactivity or fun.
Our online group tastings take a unique approach:
- We all taste and analyze the same wines using the WSET systematic approach to tasting (SAT)
- We take live votes from all participants, and build a group tasting note. We then discuss the result and give tasting guidance, so you can compare with your own findings and calibrate your palate.
- We also play play a fun and educational quiz where you can try to guess the wine and answer some trivia questions.
- All this is mixed up with an overview of the key factors of the wine and its region of origin, in a format familiar to WSET students. The perfect way to reinforce your knowledge while having fun!
After the session we send you a detailed tasting note
(see example here
) and copy of the presentation
, so you can re-taste the wine again afterwards, or catch up in case you missed a session.
We already hosted 8 "seasons" of our mystery tastings, with over 200 people participating in total, and the feedback
was unanimously positive!
