Wine is a cultural asset. We are very curious about it and never miss an opportunity to discover everything that is hidden in a bottle of wine: the wine itself, of course, the growing region, the grape varieties, the winemaking process, the winemaker...
But wine is more than that, as Ernest Hemmingway also expressed in his quote: "Wine is one of the greatest signs of civilisation in the world". In this sentence, the concept is expanded, we talk about civilisation, which also includes style, aesthetics, impeccable service and conscious and refined consumption; the right behaviour to adopt when encountering His Majesty the Wine.
In our seminar we will cover the following topics:
- A formal dinner at home. Mise-en-place, the right choice and order of the glasses...
- Business dinner in a restaurant: how to choose wine in a restaurant (matching the occasion, the menu, the budget and the image); the ritual of tasting, what to do when detecting cork taint...
- Etiquette: how to toast correctly (or is it better not to?) and how to make a toast? How do you hold the glass and how do you drink? How much wine do you pour into which glass, and can you top yourself up? ...
- Technical know-how: the right serving temperature, how to open the bottle of wine and sparkling wine correctly, when to decant the wine, the basic rules of successful wine pairing.
Enriching our hectic lives with a little etiquette brings beauty back into our day and adds more emotion, sympathy and why not, a little admiration to our social life.
