WINTER WINE FAIR
Online, December and January
Following the success of our first online winefair in September, we are back. This time, instead of being live, the tasting sessions are recorded, so you can taste in your own time.
I have selected 24 x 100ml samples that will be sent to you in secure packaging and preserved with nitrogen gas. These are blind samples so that you can test your tasting and analysis as you watch videos of my tastings and discussions of them with a student.
The samples I have chosen navigate the main varieties and important regions and also focus on wines that are often confused with each other.
The videos are available from 12th December and the quality of the samples is guaranteed for 6-8 weeks, so you can take your time exploring them with me. But we have a limited number of packs available.
12 WINE TASTING PACK AND MOCK EXAM
We have a limited number of tasting packs of 12 wines available to order for tasting and exam practice. We can send these to addresses in the EU and UK. Each sample is 100ml, so is enough to split with someone else for this purpose.
I will send you the wines and the mock exam for you to complete and return to me by the middle of January. There will be a flight each for variety, country, region and a mixed-bag.
I will give you an overall score, share the marking key with you and I will give feedback on the conclusion section for each paper.
As these are wines used in my recent online masterclasses, these tasting packs will be most useful for anyone who did not join a Global Wine Academy course this autumn.
CALIBRATE YOUR PALATE
Free online tasting sessions
Taste along with Jim and a student on IGTV our IGTV Channel on Wednesdays from 12th November. Join live or watch the recordings. Jim has selected eight wines that should be available around the world. If you are in the UK, you will be able to find them all at Waitrose.
