Wine Tasting 101 with Ieva Aldins – An Experiential Journey

Nantucket Culinary | Nantucket, MA
May 12, 2018 @ 2:00 pm – 3:30 pm

Join Sommelier Ieva Aldins on an experiential journey into wine tasting in which participants will learn a vocabulary of aromatic and taste components through our senses.

Begin by smelling items we often hear people speak of – what do wet rocks, stewed fruit and vegetal notes actually smell like? Next you will be lead through the scientific taste components of wine that define it’s character, such as acid, sugar, and tannins.

The class will culminate by deductively tasting wines and applying your new found skills. This class is educational, fun and meant to make wine accessible to all. No prior wine knowledge necessary. Limited to 24 people. Must be 21 to attend.
