Blind tasting, always sounds easier than it is. It used to be much easier to differentiate styles of wines as well as regions of origin. As part of our For Wednesday, 4 Wednesday events for early 2017 here at Searsons we’re going to look at how winemakers have mastered techniques to follow not only markets tastes, but their own palate preferences, and how sometimes what’s in the glass may originate many miles from where we might expect.  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 fourth and final Wednesday in the series, and kicks off at 7pm in Searsons, Monkstown on 29th March, 2017 and we will be exploring how wine in the trade has moved with a particular focus on the recent trends.

  • 8 wines blind, chosen to illustrate the closing gap between new and old world production areas.
  • Discussion will focus on the winemaking and viticultural progress around the globe that has led to wines that can delight, confuse, and surprise even the most knowledgeable taster among us.

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.
