Join us for the second session of our blind tasting practice!  Now scheduled monthly, simply turn up, taste, test yourself and expand your tasting ability.

We all know blind tasting is the best way to improve your palate but three things stand in the way – it can be costly, it takes up time, and it can be intimidating.

This blind tasting exercise removes all of these obstacles!

Come and train your palate with the guidance of your host Sommeliers Australia’s Gill Sykes (WSET Educator, Melbourne Wine House).

At the conclusion of each bracket, your hosts will give a short summary on the key pointers for the tasting of the wine, and how to get to the correct conclusions.

Four wines – two whites and two reds – will be tasted. Wines are chosen primarily for their typicity and are a mixed bag of varieties, origins, quality and price points. This is suitable for anyone in the industry wanting to practice blind tasting in a structured way, and would also benefit those studying all levels of WSET and CMS.

As a personal palate training exercise, you can keep your notes private or share them with your peers if you wish to.
