Trends are a part of every trade and market and the wine world has certainly seen its fair share over the last decade. As part of our For Wednesday, 4 Wednesday events for early 2017 here at Searsons we’re going to look at some of these recent trends as well as taking a look at ones coming down the track. These Wednesdays are pitched to savvy fine wine aficionados out there. Centred around the tasting of 8 wines, and led by Harriet Tindal, these evenings will encourage active discussion around the subjects and wines involved.

40 euro per night or come to all four for the reduced rate of €120

This is the third Wednesday in the series, and kicks off at 7pm in Searsons, Monkstown on 1st March, 2017 and we will be exploring how wine in the trade has moved with a particular focus on the recent trends.

  • A 2 hour tasting trying a varied selection of styles illustrating current trends and leading into discussion about the viability of these trends.
  • Orange wine. Is it a viable expression of site and variety?
  • Traditional styles hitting the press and making traction within wine circles.
  • The trend of regression. Why modern winemakers are moving back to century old methods.
  • Low alcohol. Natural or not, it’s becoming a selling point across the globe.

Harriet Tindal has been teaching WSET courses since 2005 when she became a Programme Provider in East Anglia before returning to Ireland where she heads up Education at Tindal Wine Merchants. Having completed all the WSET qualifications including the Diploma in 2008, Harriet is now immersed in the final stages of her Master of Wine (MW) studies with just the research paper to complete. Recognising the need to bring her subject alive, real life stories taken from her many trips to wine regions across the globe, are integrated into the courses.
