WSET Bitesize – How to taste wine – without drinking wine

Drinking wine should be easy, right? But can you describe what you are tasting?

Descriptions of wine can be surprisingly complicated. Wine labels can often have too many words and sometimes can poorly reflect what we’re tasting. Luckily, there are a few tricks you can use to help identify what you are tasting using some kitchen staples.

In this interactive session, we rummaged through the kitchen cupboards to help you learn about tasting wine. These will represent the structure and flavour of wines to help build a picture of how the different elements interact and balance each other out.

To get the most out of the session, prepare:
• jug of water
• 4 glasses or cups
• 2 or 3 grapes of any colour
• two slices of lemon
• tea bag
• white sugar
