Introduction to the art of wine tasting :

The wine tasting introduction course begins with a flask game where participants have to find the different wine aromas. We will also discuss about wine defects.

Then the different stages of wine-tasting are described with an introduction to the gestures and wine vocabulary:

Look: Is the wine clear or cloudy, bright or lifeless, intense or not deep? What is its color and its hue.

Smell: first, breathe the wine's aromas in a series of light sniffs. Then swirl the wine around the glass and repeat the process. Do you smell fruits, flowers, vegetables, spices, etc.?

Taste: put the wine in your mouth and assess acidity, bitterness and learn to describe tannins. Are they soft, pleasant, harsh or silky? Is the wine well-balanced? How long does it stay in your mouth?

Tasting of 6 wines with different profils:

Our facilitator gives each participant a notebook with tasting sheets, a glossary and a summary of the information given.

Then in good humor, humor and conviviality, the tasting begins with 6 wines on the program:
1 sparkling wine: crémant de Bourgogne or champagne;
2 whites: a Chardonnay and a Viognier;
2 Reds: a gamay and a more robust syrah;
1 Dessert wine: Banyuls or late harvest;

For each wine tasted, participants put into practice their newly acquired wine knowledge and exchange with our wine expert who uses simple and precise vocabulary.

A platter of cheeses and charcuterie from the Lyon region accompanies the tasting and allows surprising food and wine pairings.

The art of tasting wine no longer holds any secrets for you!
