Each of the four weekly sessions will include the tasting of six wines and background theory. Content will cover factors that impact style and quality such as environment, grape growing, winemaking and maturation options.
The course will explore eight principal grape varieties produced in a range of geographical regions throughout the world – Riesling, Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah/Shiraz and Grenache.
When: Tuesday August 24 – Tuesday September 14, 6.30pm – 8.30pm each Tuesday night.
