Want to make your trip to AFFA Fine Cheese n Wine 2018 that little bit special? Why not upgrade your experience and enjoy a wine workshop, run by me, Wine Educator and Writer Carol Brown.
I'm an Aberdeen-based member of the Association of Wine Educators and the Circle of Wine Writers and I have been talking, teaching and writing about wine for more than 20 years. I have 30 spaces available on each class and I will be talking you through various wines, including:-
WINES FROM ALSACE - Whether you are already an Alsace fan or new to this French region, this workshop will introduce you a great range of aromatic, food friendly wines beginning with a sparkling Cremant D’Alsace and then checking out aromatic varieties such as Riesling, Pinot Gris and Gewurztraminer in a range of styles.
- Friday 09/11/18 (1830-1910)
FESTIVE WINES - Unsure about a white to go with smoked salmon or the best red for turkey and all the trimmings? This Festive Wine workshop will give you a helping hand. Taste 5 wines across a range of styles- sparkling, white, red, dessert and fortified and get hints on food and wine matching and how to get the best from your wine.
- Friday 09/11/18 (2000-2040)
EXPLORE THE NAPA VALLEY - The Napa Valley is just 30 miles long and a few miles wide and accounts for only 4% of the Californian grape harvest yet has a big reputation. A range of micro climates and soils influence a number of sub regions. Explore what the Napa Valley has to offer through this tasting of 5 wines (a mix of white and red).
- Saturday 10/11/18 (1345-1425)
SPARKLING WINES - There is something special about the sound of a cork popping but with so many sparkling wines out there how do you choose? This Sparkling wine workshop will introduce you to a range of styles defined by how they are made, the grapes used and where the grapes are grown.
- Saturday 10/11/18 (1515-1555)
RIOJA STYLE GUIDE - Rioja is probably the most well- known wine region in Spain especially for its red wines but what about their white and rose wines? This Rioja Style Guide workshop will introduce you to the region with a tasting of 5 wines- white, rose and then 3 reds- a Crianza, Reserva and Gran Reserva.
