Astonishing experience with the Oenological Workshop

Hello, it’s Lucile !

Today, I’d like to let you know about a very pleasant activity : The Oenological Workshop !

An enjoyable and surprising way to discover wine tasting, without any prejudice.

Did you ever taste in a completely black and opaque glass ? It’s destabilizing, but not less interesting.

View is a very conditionning sense…

I had never tasted before in a black glass, and deprived of an essential sense, I was a little bit confused. But the discovery that followed, about the wine I just tasted, was even more disconcerting !

Come and taste, you’ll see…

Understand the difference between two cuvées from the same grape variety, or two vintages of the same wine… The tasting is becoming a pleasant and informative game.

We also discussed about winemaking process, to understand what it gives to wines and the differences it generates. Does the wine I taste is aged in oak barrel or in amphora ? And what difference does it provides to the wine ?

And you, would you dare to confront you to the black glass ?
