WIN! An at-home wine tasting experience for 10 people with The Tasting ClassNovember 28, 2016
Clueless about cabernet? Baffled by burgundy? But still enjoy a tipple? You’re not alone. And if you’d like to learn more about wine in a (really) relaxed setting, then read on.
Dubai-based The Tasting Class has a team of qualified, internationally experienced wine and beer professionals who facilitate fun and easy to understand home tasting experiences. That’s right. At home. So no need for taxis, babysitters or high heels (unless you want to make it fancy). You can have a night in with friends, while a sommelier talks you through various themes – they can even create a bespoke topic just for you.
In the spirit of Christmas, I’ve teamed up with The Tasting Class to offer one reader an at-home tasting experience, valued at Dhs2,000, for up to 10 people. A brilliant way to get inspired for what to drink during December, this prize is guaranteed to have you feeling festive.
An expert from The Tasting Class will guide you through tasting of six wines, helping you and your guests to identify and articulate what you smell and taste. The sommelier will teach about key wine regions and grape varieties according to the topic and give tips for next time you are buying wine or choosing a glass at a restaurant. You might even find a new go-to grape.
Wines will be provided by Barracuda, your go-to store for wine, beer, spirits and more, and The Tasting Class uses Riedel variety specific glassware. Cheers!
