November 11th 2019: The Glories of Wine -Ian Abrahams Dip WSET

Wine expert Ian Abrahams started his wine career taking visitors round Harvey’s wine museum in Bristol. He also studied for and passed the Wines and Spirits Education Trust (WSET) Diploma, a high level professional qualification.

Ian now works as a freelance Wine Educator, certified by WSET to run their courses which are aimed at professionals starting out in the wine industry.

Last night Ian talked about ‘The Glories of Wine’ and brought four examples for us to taste and appreciate accompanied by cheese and biscuits – a Pays d’Oc from an English owned vineyard in France, a Muga Rosé from Rioja, a lovely Errazuriz from Chile and a dessert wine, a Chenin Bland from the Loire Valley. He went through a brief explanation on how to taste wine and what to look for. The evening passed very quickly and was enjoyed by all.”
