If you are looking for a fun and unusual wine tasting, this is the experience for you!We developed the first Wine Sensory Game with the aim to create an uncomplicated and enjoyable method that allowed anyone to describe, and so understand, the wine characteristics.Contrary to the traditional "passive" wine tasting, you and your palate will be the true protagonists of the tasting.We will taste and analyze two different high-quality Tuscan wines, but initially, I will not give you any description. Instead, I will guide you through the sensory analysis, teaching you our alternative method that describes the wine as it were a "Season," a "Place" and an "Animal."At the end of the experience, you will create your own "Wine Tale" that you will bring with you, as a memory of this unique wine experience!This experience follows the philosophy of conscious hedonism: without understanding, there can be no real pleasure. Hence the difference between "to consume" and "to savor."
