Discovering Grape Varieties Tasting

Take a tour through some of the most important grape varieties in the world, understand how to recognise them, why they taste differently and how to appreciate them. 

About the Discovering Grape Varieties Tasting

Picture yourself in a restaurant. You’re going through the Wine Menu and you want a red but you realise you don’t know what difference in taste to expect from a Cabernet Sauvignon and a Shiraz. Or maybe it’s a warm day and you want a refreshing, crisp white – would that be the Sauvignon Blanc or the Pinot Grigio?

This informative, fun and entertaining masterclass will help you know more about the most common grape varieties, those that you see all the time in restaurant menus and shops, and give you some initial tools to recognise them and appreciate their quality. Then you can explain your friends (and show-off a bit!) about your newly acquired wine knowledge, and feel more confident when ordering wine.

In this 90-minutes beginner’s tasting you’ll have the opportunity to try six wines, three whites and three reds, made from six of the most famous grape varieties in different countries. Our wine expert Natalia -who might know something as she completed her WSET Diploma with the highest marks in the UK-, will lead a very easy to understand tasting, talking you through how to recognise key grape varieties, and what to expect from their different production methods and origin.

The tasting also includes a welcome sample of fizz and some snacks. What’s not to like!
