Health, Wellbeing and Hobbies - Wines of the Mediterranean
Wines of the Mediterranean
This tasting class will look in detail at the wines (still, sparkling, fortified) of the countries that border the Mediterranean Sea. We will learn about the history of Mediterranean vineyards and the grape varieties that have been successfully exported. We will learn about international and national wine-making techniques and discuss when and why these differ. In our comparisons we will learn how wine-making practices change the character of the wine that is produced. We will taste wines from many of the major Mediterranean wine regions using a systematic approach to tasting. We will also read a variety of wine reviews and compare wine menus. Throughout the semester we will look at wine regulation and improve our understanding of the wine industry. This class should be of interest to those who want to expand their knowledge about wine in general and wish to do so in a lively environment. There will be opportunities for blind tasting on most evenings as we build on our knowledge during the semester. We will taste at least 30 wines. Glasses will be provided. Participants take it in turn to provide cheeses and biscuits for the classes. At the end of the eight weeks of teaching we will organise a dinner at the University where we will match wines with foods.
