The Meetup Dubai Wine Club's November blind wine tasting theme is Spanish Wine. We'll learn about some of Spain’s famous wine styles, regions and indigenous grape varieties. All you have to do to become a Meetup Dubai Wine Club member is sign up at http://www.meetup.com/Dubai-Wine-Club/
This class is centered around 'blind' tasting wines. Since you can't see the label you can really 'taste' the wines free from bias, and it makes for fun conversation with your new friends. This interactive wine lesson is powered by The Tasting Class.
How it Works: We sit at tables of 10, and six different bottles of wine are to be shared by everyone at the table. The bottles are covered so no one knows what they are.
The Tasting Class will teach you some tips on tasting wine like a pro, and give some insight into Span as a wine producing nation. Everyone will then have some time to blind taste the wines and consult with Lindsay, the sommelier from The Tasting Class, regarding anything they want about the wine. At this time members can enjoy some snacks as well.
After everyone tastes all the wines we will vote for our favourite. We then reveal the wines one by one as The Tasting Class will give a brief lesson on each bottle.
Taste and discuss with everyone at the table, learn about wine, vote and enjoy some snacks and the socializing.
Additional Info: A bar will be open upon arrival to warm you up for the main tasting, and The Grand Millennium Hotel Dubai has graciously offered Wine Club members 20% off in all their restaurants on the night (Hello Belgian Beer Café!)
