[VIC] Common Wine Faults: A Tasting Workshop
Date: June 18 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Do you have trouble recognising brett? Never tasted mousiness?
Then join us at this specialised 2 hour workshop as we examine wine faults commonly (mis)identified in a dining setting.
Held in collaboration with the Australian Wine Research Institute (AWRI), this workshop is open to Sommeliers Australia members and guests to attend. Common wine faults presenting in white and red wine will be shown in various concentrations (10 faults in total), and our panel of experts – an AWRI scientist, a Master Sommelier and an experienced winemaker/show judge – will discuss why these faults occur and how best to identify them, as well as being on hand to answer technical and practical questions.
This workshop is a must for sommeliers, wait staff, barmen and anyone working in a retail or distribution setting, as participants will learn to recognise and determine their own personal sensitivities and/or insensitivities to wine faults across both white and red wines.
Sommeliers Australia members – $99 + booking fee
Non-Members – $149 + booking fee
Ticket sales will open over the coming weeks.
PLEASE NOTE: Bookings are essential, and will be taken until Friday 14 June, 5pm unless booked out prior.
