A game played every week by people who enjoy wine and want to improve their wine tasting skills whilst at the same time having a bit of fun :)
Every Tuesday we'll send you 3 wines to taste blind. The idea is to figure out what they are:
- The structure of the wine - sweetness, body, acidity etc
- What grape the wine is made from
- Which country the wine came from
- What region it was produced in
Sounds easy? Far from it. Expert tasters routinely get it wrong and if you got a score of more than 3000 out of the maximum possible 4200 points per game you're doing really well.
The Avino Taste Master App
Every Tuesday, a new tasting is added to the tastings setion and the Avino Taste Master App will display the wines in a hidden format. You then use it to record your analysis and guesses about what the wines are. We give you a clue most weeks, except for the weeks when we play the round we call "Nightmare" which is made up from totally random wines.
The Taste-Along videos
If you want to see where you went wrong [of course, you never will! ;)] or you want to improve your tasting skills either just for fun and learning or because you are studying for a Guildsom or WSET course, you can taste the wines blind and then watch our weekly taste-along videos.
We produce a new video each Monday, uploaded to Youtube. This includes an introduction to the next tasting in which we give some clues to you if it is particularly hard and a "reveal" video where, once you have tasted the wines, you can see what they were. Pick up some tips about tasting, learn more about the process of analysing wine and listen to DipWSET presenters talk about what they thought of each wine.
Perfect for WSET or Guildsom students
What could be better for people taking the WSET or Guildsom exams? Blind wines chosen in a sensible fashion and a tutored taste-along video with an expert for each flight to teach you more about wine tasting and wine appreciation.
