Wine 101, Wine Tasting Focus, and Beer Basics are three popular approaches, easily customized to meet your needs.
Learn the basics of wine tasting. De-code the bottle label. Understand the terminology of “nose,” “legs,” “terroir,” “mouth-feel.” Experience the difference between Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc. Try a cross-section of both whites and reds. Discuss approaches to pairing wines with particular foods.
Focus in on a particular grape variety, a particular geographic region, an individual winery or wine-making style. Comparing and contrasting in a focused tasting will refine your palate and help you develop your ability to understand and articulate your own preferences with regard to wine.
Top-fermented, bottom-fermented? Pilsner, porter or bock? Hoppy, yeasty, creamy? Real beer for real beer lovers. Give your beer-loving friends an opportunity to taste many different brews and learn what gives each one its unique style and taste. No lectures, no heavy lifting; this is the fun and easy kind of experiential learning.
