Educational Wine Tasting

Southwest Wine Center Tasting Room

Experiencing Wine:

Are you curious why your mouth feels dry when drinking certain wines? Or what component in wine makes you salivate? Why are certain wines clear and others so dense you can’t see the bottom of your glass? Are you sensing citrus? What kind? Lemon, lime, or grapefruit?

Wine Experience
Join us for a wine-tasting experience that focuses on the individual and deepens each person’s knowledge of wine and wine tasting. Our 1.5-hour Private Wine Tasting Experience provides an educational experience for attendees further to develop their palate through sensory evaluation. As we move through a flight of SWC student-crafted wines, we will describe the essential components of wine tasting to deepen your connection with what’s in your glass. This session will focus on individual palate development and creating YOUR own unique ways of describing what you sense on YOUR palate.

Sign up for this fun experience today!  Space is limited. Every participant must be 21 years of age or older.
