Twice the Price 'Blind Wine Tasting 4week course York
It's Back! You guys loved this so much in 2016 that we've gone out, found some different wines to taste and we're bringing it back...
"How much should I really be spending to get a decent bottle of wine?" "Why is that wine so much more expensive than the others if they all come from the same place/are made from the same grape?" "Would I really be able to tell the difference if I splash out on a more expensive bottle, or should I just stick to my favourite which I know I like?"
Do any of these questions sound familiar? Well they do to me! Every week I hear questions just like this at the Wine School. People are fascinated, perhaps quite confused, and certainly a little cynical when it comes to understanding the different prices of wine.
This 4 week course will address this issue head-on, in the best way we know how- by tasting all of our wine BLIND without knowing the price. Each week we'll pick a popular white and red wine and taste 3 examples of each. One wine will cost £5, one wine will cost £10 and one will cost at least £20. But here's the killer question- WILL YOU BE ABLE TO TELL THE DIFFERENCE? And equally importantly- will you actually prefer the most expensive one? Some weeks possibly not.
Of course you'll be given plenty of guidance along the way. Every wine is a unique story, so before tasting we'll go through an overview of the wine in question, learning what the main considerations are when it comes to costing in each case. But the real excitement in the evening comes with the blind tasting; the opportunity to set aside prejudices that people might have once they know the cost of the wine, and just trust your own senses!
Like all our 4 week courses, this is the perfect fit for someone who has been to a Wine School course before- perhaps you've done the World of Wine Course and you're wondering what to do next? But even if you're a complete beginner, you'll find the fun and relaxed approach to these evenings mean that all opinions are welcome! So if you're interested in learning a little more about blind tasting, or you're one of those people that puzzles over one bottle should cost £7.50 and another is £15, this is definitely the course for you!
