Join us for a very special class all about Wine Component Tasting – with Palizo owner and professional sommelier Patrick Mangold-White.

What is “Component Tasting”? There are four basic tastes, each of which is perceived on a different part of the tongue: sweet, sour, salty and bitter. Sweet on the tip, sour on the sides, salty in the middle and bitter at the back. Although saltiness is rarely found in wines, the other three are present in varying degrees.

Understanding component tasting adds greatly to the understanding of how wine works and helps the taster define some of the basic tastes and aromas found in wine. Useful for beginners and advanced students alike. For the beginner, it launches the journey into sensory training that is one of the great byproducts of enjoying wine. For the experienced wine sampler, an occasional component tasting will sharpen those senses.
