Lessons to basic Wine Tasting

One not only drinks wine, one smells it, one observes it.
One tastes it, one sips it and … one talks about it

Edward VII.

For over 10 years we have organized courses of 8 meetings of 2 hours each together with the AIS (Italian Sommelier Association).

It is a tailor made course for people who wishes to learn, understand, evaluate the colour nuances, perfumes and flavours of wine; a real and downright sensorial journey to the discovery of the essence that hides behind a wine sip.

The aim of the course is to convey a basic elemental knowledge of the fascinating world of wine.:

  • sensorial and organoleptic analysis;
  • wine tasting and wine making techniques;
  • the best way to combine wine and food.
  • the correct way to use the glasses;
  • service style;

The course finishes with a visit to an Umbrian wine cellar and a convivial dinner where the Certificate of Attendance from the AIS is handed.
