Sensory Evaluation of Wine

Learn the physiological, psychological, cultural, physical and chemical bases that underpin wine perception and how to interpret sensory outcomes as related to wine. Wine tasting sessions will emphasize self-knowledge, from a sensory point of view, allowing attendants to become aware of their unique thresholds and acuities for aroma, taste, tactile and visual sensations. The practical sessions will move towards the assessment of both wine varietals and wine domestic, regional and international styles.
