Uncorking the mystery of wine

This week Sue Lobb unveiled the mysteries of wine making, including the world’s major wine producing regions and the vast range of ingredients that can be used, as well as the characteristics that should feature in the finished product – even the taste of old leather in one wine.  I now know that red grapes also make white wine!

Hints and tips followed on sampling: sight, smell, taste, and, yes, touch (your palette!) and suggestions for food and wine matching.  Best of all, we tried wine tasting with a Veltliner, Syrah and Monbazillac.
