Wine tasting

The secret of a sublime wine experience

During this wine tasting workshop you'll learn about the range of flavours different grape varieties bring to a wine, taste how the ground in which the vines are rooted give a specific character to wine, and hear about the process of wine making. The knowledge you'll gain about wines will make you appreciate wine even if you are a beer lover. Especially, when you learn about the one ingredient that can elevate a wine from good to extraordinary- the wine glass. It can break or make a wine. How? Join the tasting by Joost Meenks and you'll find out.
