Understand the world of wine Tuesdays 19.30 2018/19

Course members will be introduced to the world's top grapes and wine regions. Each week we'll taste four examples (just 50ml each) of these wine and regional styles. For instance, we'll try a pinot from Burgundy another from New Zealand, a sauvignon blanc from the Loire another from Chile, and that's just one week.  At the end, you will be able to assess a wine's quality and value for money - no more choosing the second cheapest wine, no more cowering before the sommelier
 
This course is suitable for those with little background in wine as well as those with more experience.  The essential requirement is an interest in all things wine.
 
The course is organised around the main grape varieties, Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir etc. Normally we introduce a couple of grapes each week along with their most notable wine areas.   By the end of the course, you will have had a good introduction to the top grapes and wine regions of the world.
 
Each week we taste four examples of the grapes and associated regions. 
 
Warning: we don't drink we taste, four 50ml tasting portions each week equal to 200ml in total, slightly more than a standard 175ml restaurant helping.  Spread over two hours this should be within the tolerance of most.
 
The instructor, Prof Chris Easingwood, is a qualified wine tutor and has given talks at wine conferences and has presented this course to various audiences.
