French Wine Scholar - Alsace Evening
Our French Wine Scholar (FWS) evenings are in-depth tastings on all the key regions and lesser-known regions of France. The FWS study and certification program is geared for members of the wine trade and avid French wine enthusiasts. We are offering the opportunity to attend single evening sessions of our French Wine Scholar course - perfect for those who want to experience an evening of the course before committing to the full course or for anyone who wants to learn more about a specific region in France.
With 5 sub-regions, 13 grape varieties, 200+ terroir styles, and 1,000 producers crafting more than 10,000 cuvées of dry, semi-dry, semi-sweet or sweet wines every year, Alsace can be mind-bogglingly difficult to comprehend. Moreover, quality/price ratios range from poor to exceptional. Price does not filter out the world class gems from the rest. Impossible to master the region? No. The key to understanding Alsace - its wines, vintages, cuvées, wine styles, terroirs and its relationship with food - all boils down to the grapes and where they are grown. It’s a formula that you will master on this evening.
On this evening, you will taste 8-10 wines that showcase the different varietals, wine-making styles and terroir of this iconic wine region.
Who should consider attending this evening? This evening is ideal for those:
- Considering, currently studying or have completed the WSET Level 3 and/or WSET Diploma
- Who hold an enthusiastic interest for the French wine industry
Cheeses and meats representative of those served in the region will also be available to enjoy during the tasting.
