The weekend wine school with overnight stay
Treat yourself to an unforgettable weekend at the Oranien Hotel & Residences.
A superlative gourmet wine seminar: just the thing for couples who want to combine an in-formative lunchtime wine basics seminar with a festive dinner in the evening.
The event program is as follows: participants are asked to arrive around 1.30 pm on Saturday. The wine basics seminar kicks off at 2 pm and runs through till 6 pm. During this time, the seminar covers aspects such as wine production, what goes into making a great wine, significant grape varieties and international attributes. It goes without saying that sensory perceptions such as sight, smell and taste are also explored. The course is crowned with a blind tasting in which participants apply their newly honed sommelier skills to identify wines without seeing the bottle from which they came. After a break, participants meet again at 8 pm to partake in a fabulous five course meal complemented by eight first class international wines. More than simply enjoyed, each wine is properly presented, explained and discussed in detail. The dinner is a great opportunity for participants to apply their newfound knowledge as not all of the wines are introduced before being tasted.
The event includes:
– Wine basics seminar (4 hours)
– Five course dinner with a selection of quality wines and discussions
– Coffee, water and bread
– Seminar documentation
– A nights accommodation in a double room
– rich breakfast buffet
Price: EUR 225.- per person
