My Review

My wife and myself were the only participants at our late February 2012 tasting. Our hostess/presenter was very knowledgeable, had prepared ahead of time, and seemingly enjoyed taking her time to present and discuss. She covered basic wine tasting techniques and wine evaluation. She added value beyond what was described in the tasting blurb, for example, by having vials of odors to compare to the bouquet of the wines. She did well handling our wide variety of questions that went beyond the wines in front of us. She spoke very good English. The wines were all of good quality and true to their type. There were small amounts of three interesting cheeses. We had not had young pecorino before. The two extra virgin olive oils we had were eye opening as we had not treated olive oils like wines before. How to make this better? Have more wines, as Tuscany has many more types than were represented at this tasting.
