Event Type: 

Come attend this two-evening course, hosted by the Midwest Grape and Wine Industry Institute at ISU, to examine the critical evaluation of wines! Participants will learn a variety of skills in wine evaluation to become proficient in tasting wines critically. The workshop begins with the major components in wine including sugars, acids, alcohols and tannins. Exercises will be completed in white and red wine aroma identification, varietal identification, wine flaws and faults, and consistency in scoring among others. This workshop is targeted toward consumers, specifically those who are wine enthusiasts! If you have already participated in previous Intensive Tasting Proficiency Training sessions, we encourage you to attend and re-train. The exercises remain the same, but the wines are different every time. There is always something new to learn and sensory training takes practice. Pre-registration is required to attend this course.  You must be 21 years of age or older to attend this event.

Registration must be completed online prior to midnight, Nov. 1.
