    NEW | Have Your Say: The Language of Wine, Tasting Notes & Scores with Andrew Jefford and William Kelley

    Did you enjoy reading our Great Debate blog on The Language of Wine, Tasting Notes & Scores with Andrew Jefford and Dr. William Kelley? 

    If so, now it is your chance to HAVE YOUR SAY with our two debaters.

    We are following up their written debate with a live one airing on Wednesday, February 23, and encourage you to share your opinion or ask them your question directly. No matter where you stand on the issue of tasting notes and wine criticism, this is the chance for you to make your voice heard!

    Register for this FREE event:

    The challenge of how we might best describe wine aromas and flavours continues to fascinate wine students and enthusiasts alike: this is your chance to question both a wine-writing veteran and one of the most talented of the new generation of wine critics about their work in this field  The scoring of wines is now universally practised and the use of scores as a sale aid is ubiquitous.  Is this a good thing -- or does it impoverish wine culture?  Can we trust scores?  Is there score inflation at work, and if so how can we re-set scores to optimise their usefulness?  More broadly, can we trust wine journalists and wine critics to work ethically?

    Take a look at the debate again and share your questions and thoughts. In order to make the most of the live debate, you can leave a comment below or DM on the Great Debate post on Instagram or Facebook with your question or comment at before the live debate.

    There also will be plenty of chances to post your opinions or questions on the day of the live debate via the chat box.

    Get involved and Have your Say -- Andrew and William are looking forward to hearing from you!

    If you are not a WSG member, you can register for the event using the form below:

    Instructions on how to access this live webinar will be emailed to all registered participants prior to the webinar.
