Welcome, Toasters!

Are you eager to explore the variety of tastes and aromas? Whether you’re a wine novice or an enthusiast, an easy-to-follow guide will help you appreciate and enjoy every sip.

For our ‘flash’ tasting, bring along your favorite wines, and let’s get ready to awaken our taste buds. We can’t wait to share our thoughts and learn from each other during this exciting journey. Don’t forget to leave your comments with your observations as we inspire one another.

Let’s raise a glass to this adventure and broaden our taste palates. The exploration of wine can be so much fun, inspiring, and motivating.

here is a wine list of what some Toasters are bringing on! 

2018 Zenato Ripassa Valpolicella DOC Superiore

"The process makes for a refined and concentrated wine, extremely smooth and velvety, with vibrant red fruit aromas. On the palate, it delivers fruity notes and elegant tannin with hints of chocolate and spice. Ripassa has played a highly important role in the Zenato winery’s evolution over the years." - Zenato


A classic Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc with aromas of grapefruit, lime and crushed herbs. Pure and concentrated with flavors of white peach, citrus and tropical fruits.

2020 Bread & Butter Cabernet Sauvignon

Medium-full bodied with a rich nose of raspberry and baking spices paired with notes of cranberry and black currant.

What to Expect

This is a Bring Your Own Wine (BYOW) Online Tasting which means you can bring along any wine you want. In short I recommend wines that trigger your curiosity. I will take you through the method I use to taste a new wine, using a simple Sensory Analysis Procedure.

There is no right or wrong and tasting is not a competition of any sort. It’s all about understanding the fermented beverage in your glass. Check out the Q & A tab to find answers to questions discussed during the sessions. Tab on the subtitles bellow to find out how to prepare.

Customize your Experience

Wine Tasting is a very personal experience and you can do as you please especially in the privacy of a zoom meeting!  However I’d suggest you try and give your wine selection a structure and a theme. Comparative tasting is the way I learn about wine. Observing two wines at the same time focusing on what is different and where applied what is common between them. Tab on the titles below to find out how.

Terroir, pronounced “tehr-wahr”, is a French term that expresses the combination of soil, weather conditions and style of winegrowing and winemaking. These three elements bring a specific identity and a sense of place to the wine. A terroir can be spread as a region or be as specific as a small part of an estate.

I recommend choosing  wines from the same origin if you want to focus on what a region has to offer. Keep things simple and equal by picking from the same Country > region > county > village > winery.

If you like a grape variety and you want to understand it better then choose the same single-variety wines but as diverse as possible. e.g. East coast vs West coast or New world vs Old world wine.

You may want to get a bit deeper into your glass and compare different wine styles like Oak-aged vs Young wine or Dry vs Semi-Dry.

Use the search box to find merchants that ship your choice to your location 

Dear Toasters,
I’ve put together a list of the wines that will be around our session on the 12th of December! 

Please Help me complete this list! I will be updating this wine list every time someone lets me know of the wine they want to bring along on this tasting experience. With details about the wines and where to buy them. If you have any information that can help me complete my post feel free to pass them over…

    1. Welcome Kristin, thanks for sharing your choice. A generic Californian Cabernet sauvignon is usually a robust bold fruit-forward blend with intense sweet spices at finish!

    1. Welcome Melissa and thank you for sharing your wines.
      Your bubbly is imported in the US directly from the Prosecco DOC region in Italy, the Francis Coppola Diamond Collection Prosecco is crafted from select grapes grown in the northeastern Italy. I will explain how can a US wine producer sell an Italian wine. You’ll enjoy aromas of citrus blossoms and exotic fruit lead to flavors of apple, citrus, and white peach.

    1. Hey Julie,
      you are bringing in one of my favorite to work with wines ever!
      The structure, the finesse and the elegance of this wine make it a unique gem! Thank you for bringing it over!

    1. Welcome Angela, thanks for sharing your wines. Excellent choice for our session. Both of these wines are made to be simply enjoyed as everyday wines. Good, honest and delicious. Very typical of what they are.
      We will compare them visually to notice the alcohol level and sweetness amount in a wine. We’ll also find out what’s the relation of these two grape varieties.
      What you’ll enjoy about these wines:
      A classical Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc with aromas of grapefruit, lime and crushed herbs. Pure and concentrated with flavors of white peach, citrus and tropical fruits.
      A California Cabernet Sauvignon that is ripe, luscious and bold with layers of fresh berries, blackcurrant and subtle black pepper, toasted oak and rich vanilla.

Vouni-Panayia Winery, Barba Yiannis Maratheftiko

Maratheftiko is an ancient grape variety indigenous to Cyprus. It is grown in sparse quantities around the island. In the 1980s, with the revival of small boutique wineries in Cyprus this variety was rediscovered and its cultivation is slowly on the increase again, as it offers a distinctive character to local terroir wines.
