Wine class is a corker

IF YOU want to learn how to make an informed choice of wine for your table, Curra Social and Sports Club member Peter Brittain is the man to talk to.

Peter and his wife Pauline are hosting a wine evaluation and appreciation day at their home in Curra from 11.30am on Saturday, May 11.

Peter, who holds a B.ap.Sc.Oenology (Wine Science), says Australia has some fine, inexpensive wines and knowing how to evaluate will make all the difference to your enjoyment.

The purpose of the day is to show people what to look for and what to expect from a quality wine.

Peter will be teaching people how to map their individual palates, which is the key factor in achieving maximum pleasure from their chosen wines.

"Learning how to appreciate bouquet, aroma, oak and the different fermentations, will open up a new experience in the world of wine and ensure satisfaction with your selections," said Peter, who obtained his degree in 1994 at the world renowned Roseworthy Agriculture College, which is now part of the University of Adelaide.

The cost of $20 per person includes wine tasting, followed by a country lunch.

As seating is limited, early booking is advised and you can save your place by phoning Peter on 0427 095 696.

The afternoon promises to be friendly, informal and easy to understand and you will go away with a deeper appreciation of the noble grape.
