Now here is something a bit different! A gift voucher for a Wine Tasting Experience is something that your wine loving friends and family will really appreciate.
The Reporter spoke to Ian McNeill who owns The Wine Experience to find out more:-“My tutored wine tastings really are an experience and this led to the naming of my business. Everyone is completely involved in this tasting experience – just like professional wine tasters where we look, taste, discuss and learn – and I always encourage guests to ask questions.
We will look at the wine and see if it is fresh; nose the wine to recognise faults or see the pleasures to follow; then taste the wine and get the whole picture which is revealed with every premium wine tasted.
You may want to learn about food and wine matching, so my Italian Wine Experience or The French Wine Experience will have nibbles of hams and cheeses of the country to accompany the wines.
The big favourite Wine Experience for 2012 is going to be The Chocolate and Wine Tasting Experience. This will be an amazing evening of indulgence where calorie counting is forgotten completely!
You will taste some amazing luxury chocolates, mostly from organic sources and fair-trade sources. With many years of experience in selecting wines I am able to bring out the best in pairing these with the most amazing chocolates.”
And a couple of Ian’s really special gift suggestions for Christmas giving?
