Anybody know of places where they conduct wine appreciation courses for novices?? Wanna get into that for business, health and leisure reasons. Many Thanks.
Didn't you know that wine tasting is a cliche of experts, that haven't really got a clue about wine, although it's a good excuse to have a piss up!
Actually I was watching this program on TV of this famous chef, tasting wines, on of the wines was Cliff Richards own brand...anyway he was a guest of the show, and the chef asked him to do some wine sampling of 3 wines.
His own brand he rated as crap on the show! But quite seriously the art of wine tasting I really believe to be over rated, but useful to pump price, and to rub shoulders, with the right kind of people. I've tasted some pretty expensive vinegars in my time and some wonderful wines too!
My point is that i have never understood it, individual tastes are so different, that it really is a nightmare, when trying to put a taste, to a brand of red. never mind the year!
So I will stick with vinegar, I am becoming quite a connoisseur of sour wine!
