Taste Like a Master of Wine: Part II

Test Your Tasting Skills Using an MW Style Approach
With Matthew Stubbs MW
Aug 12 2020


Following on from the Taste like a Master of Wine session in May this will be another chance to test your tasting skills using an MW style approach. A quick recap on how to taste in an MW way will be followed by a tasting of two wines which will be used to answer an exam-style practical question.

No preparation is needed, the session is open to all.  Just turn up with an open and analytical mind!

Matthew will be tasting two wines during the seminar to illustrate the MW approach,
White : Adelaide Hills Chardonnay or any cool climate Australian Chardonnay
Red : Rioja Reserva
If you can find them to taste along with him…great! If not, no worries you can still follow along with a dry tasting.
