Guess How Old I Am!

  • Wine and Food Foundation of TX 2121 East 6th Street, Suit 102 Austin, TX, 78702 United States (map)

Blind tastings are super-popular here at the WFFT, so in February’s educational class, we’ll be exploring what happens to wine as it ages without knowing the vintage, varietal, or region. All wine, white and red, evolves from fruity in its youth to take on flavors of earth, mushroom, and cigar box in maturity. However, how fast this happens and whether the wine stays balanced or not, is dependent on many factors, including grape varieties, producer, potential of the vineyard, etc. Also, the lines between varieties and regions start to blur and deceive. Join us to experience this magical process, see how close you can guess, and learn a few tricks to hone your skills.  Note: there are two seatings for this class: 4:00-5:15 pm and 6:00 to 7:15 pm.
