Last Friday, the Wine, Beer & Liqueur Appreciation Club finally organized its grand opening event: Red Wine Tasting and Etiquette.
A la carte, four classic wines: Pinot noir, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and the renowned Châteauneuf-du-Pape.
I conducted the tasting session and explained wine tasting etiquette 101 survival basic knowledge. Teaching while drinking wine was interesting but the learning experience for the rest of us was even more fruitful. At the end of the session, most of us became conversant with the wine appreciation vocabulary. The boys especially enjoyed the “tears”, “legs”, “nose” and “bodies”.
Of course, an agreeable tasting does not go without proper snacks.
And wonderful participants who showed strong team spirit – 14 bottles down, and 120 glasses cleaned.
Thank you all for your contribution!
