Why Learn about Wine?
Drinking wine brings pleasure. The pleasure comes in many guises - social pleasure, sensual pleasure, relaxation pleasure. It enhances a meal, an occasion and provides a central focus of celebration. However, we all know that there is a dark side to the pleasures of alcoholic effect of wine. Any alcohol taken in excess will have an impact on the drinker.
Have you ever about the marketing campaign behind this promotion? Has a case of this wine been on a shelf in a corner of a remote store for 28 days gathering dust before being launched nationwide on the gondola ends of the supermarket by the pallet-load? Yet many of us are happy to believe this wine is really worth more that we are paying for it.
How are you expected to know these tricks of the trade of a product which is so varied and confusing in the first place? The answer is that you are not.
However, there is a growing trend of wine education which uncovers the complexities of the wine market. By knowing the product, its provenance and how to taste it, you will enjoy wine in a completely new way. This knowledge increases responsibility in consumption and reduces the potential to abuse.
The Wine WiseCompany offers a variety of courses for those wishing to understand more about the wine they drink. On Saturday 13 October, we have a two hour introduction to wine called How To Taste Wine which will take you through the stages of tasting wine and the terminology used on a label.
We also run a new program of courses aimed at the 18-24 year olds called Drink It:Taste It. These aim to educate this age group through responsible wine and beer tastings to make smarter alcohol choices and therefore reduce the impact of alcohol in their lives.
