Blind Tasting

Blind Tasting

let your senses be your guide

Discover the art of the blind tasting. Let your senses be your guide during this discovery and try to guess the region, grape variety or the year of the wines you taste. This workshop may be a bit challenging for those who do not have experience in blind tasting, but I guarantee it will be lots of fun as well.

You will enjoy the wine in a familiar and cosy ambiance of your own holiday apartment. The tasting of 4 different wines will be accompanied by a plate of regional delicacies to share.

For who?

The tasting workshop is best suitable for wine professionals and more experienced wine lovers, who would like to play with their senses.

If you have just started your wine journey, the ‘Blind Tasting’ workshop may be a bit of a challenge for you and I would recommend choosing ‘The Art of Tasting’ workshop to start with instead.
