White Wine Blind Tasting Kit — Half Bottles

$49.00

White Wine Blind Tasting Kit — Half Bottles

One-Time Blind White Wine Tasting Kit or Add Future Subscription Shipments

Why This Gift

Successfully blind tasting — where you don't know which wine you're drinking — is considered one of the hallmarks of a knowledgeable wine drinker (this is how Sommeliers are made). While most of us are never going to have enough wine knowledge or train our palates well enough to be 100% successful at blind tasting, it IS fun to try our hands at.

Budding wine geeks will eat this up and enjoy this white wine tasting gift immensely. It's both educational and fun.

A couple of notes:
When you click the "Customize" button on the Palate Club's website, your gift is automatically switched from a One-Time Tasting Kit to a One-Time Tasting Kit + Custom Subscription. That's fine, you can put it back, or give a generous, ongoing gift of wine tasting.

Sommelier-Famous Le Nez Du Vin Wine Aroma Training Kit

$449.99

Sommelier-Famous Le Nez Du Vin Wine Aroma Training Kit

The choice of wineries, educators, merchants and true wine lovers the world over

Why This Gift

For 35 Years the 54 Aroma Master Kit has been the reference in the Wine Industry. It is the choice of wineries, educators, merchants and true wine lovers the world over.

Our sense of smell is very delicate and highly sensitive. Practice allows us to recognize and identify the 54 aromas most commonly present in wine; thus, improving our appreciation and enjoyment of wine. These are the typical aromas found in red and white wine (including Champagne) from France and around the world. They give us an indication of the wine’s origin, the grape variety as well as the vineyard, the winemaking techniques used and the aging conditions.

Memorizing these aromas provides an accurate and coherent vocabulary to further stimulate our appreciation of fine wines.

Contents of Master Kit:
Each aroma vial comes with an illustrated explanatory card that includes an abbreviated description of the aroma. The Le Nez du Vin instructional Book explains why the taste of wine depends on its aromas and teaches three different methods of initiation:
1. From the vineyards to the aromas
2. From grape varieties to aromas
3. From aromas to wine
