I really think tasting events are the perfect opportunity to test your palate. Lots of different wines in the same place over a relatively short period can heighten your senses. You often get to meet with the producers which is also fascinating.
My problem is that I tend not to hear about them until it is too late and the masterclasses are sold out!
But I have advance notification about some events The Wine Gang are running in November. They are a collection of wine writers who I respect and whose judgement I trust. They have kindly offered Man et Vin readers a deal.
If you fancy going you can book and use this code TWGBL40
which will give you £20 tickets for £12
AND 10% off any masterclass.
