WSET Level 4 Practice Tasting - Cool Climate White Wines


WSET Level 4 Practice Tasting - Cool Climate White Wines

Our regular WSET L4 practice tasting sessions will return in the Fall 2014!

This time, we will limit attendance to 12 people for each session. The structure will be slightly different in that we will taste blind 6-8 wines at the beginning of the session. I will then guide the remainder of the session so that we can together identify each wines before releasing the labels.

Each session will focus will be on clues from tasting notes, style, quality, production methods, and ageing potential. We will practice tasting notes benchmarks (levels), identification of the essential clues blind, argue answers for each paper 1 to 4 (grape, region, quality, ageing potential, identification).

The cost for each session will be HKD 450. This will include the wines as per the themes below. As well, we will supply all of the glasses for these sessions (iso size). No need for you to bring glasses.

The tastings will be held tat the tasting rooms of L'Impératrice Fine Wine on Hollywood Road in Sheung Wan.

The objective of these practice will be to develop very high levels of blind tasting skils.

Anyone taking WSET L4 or higher is welcome to join. Confirmation of attendance will be based upon payment in advance via this site (Eventbrite) or by cheque by post in advance of each session.
