VINIDA - Geography in the glass - blindtasting the terroir

VINIDA - Geography in the glass - blindtasting the terroir
This evening we will focus on wine and geography

Geography determines a lot about a wine. Wine from grapes grown in a hot climate tastes different from wine grown in a cooler climate. Grapes grown on a hillside have different characteristics from ones grown on the plain right below it. Even the soil grapes are grown on can make a difference — although perhaps not in the literal way of tasting minerality.

Following on from the general introduction to blind tasting in September — don’t worry if you missed it, you’ll be all caught up in the first few minutes — we will focus on tasting for geographical origin. We will look at some of the easiest tricks enabling you to deduce something about the origin of just about every wine. We will also test some commonly-held beliefs about terroir - are they myths or are they real?

The tasting will be presented jointly by Dr Janice Wang and Domen Presern.

The presentation will start at 19:00 and that is 19:00.
