For those who enjoy wine and would like to discover more, while tasting in the friendly company of other wine lovers. No particular knowledge of wine is necessary. Each month we taste six wines around a wine-related theme, complemented by appropriate cheeses and nibblies. Discussion is encouraged, as it is invaluable to hear different perspectives on the same wine. Themes may include major varieties, styles and regions, old world and new world comparisons, wine ageing, fundamentals of tasting and other aspects of the world of wine. It is usually a mix of everyday and fine wines side by side. Most wines are tasted blind (masked).
Once the group gets established, there will be opportunity for class members to research and present wines for tasting.
The course will be held on the first Thursday of each month, including term breaks, starting February 1.
REQUIREMENTS: No experience required. Materials, wine and consumables will be provided.
REQUIREMENTS: The cost for this course is payable in two halves – $100 for a half-year (five sessions), payable in advance, covering all wines, food and a set of six tasting glasses. If an enrolled member is away, eg for a winter holiday break, a friend can be invited to attend in their place.
An occasional helping hand with set-up or clean-up would be appreciated
TUTOR: Philip has loved wine tasting for many years and led a six-week course of Wine Appreciation for U3APP in 2023. He has also led a local wine group for the last 15 years. They have not run out of topics (or opinions) yet!
