I recently attended a new format of tasting at West London Wine School - the "Grape Debate". The debate is based on a grape variety (in this case Pinot Noir) and the 3 tutors each showcase a wine from each of 3 price categories from a country or region (in this case New Zealand, Burgundy and Germany) in an attempt to win our votes for their region. After the (fairly liberal) application of an aperitif wine to those of us in the audience the fun began. Jimmy, Quentin and Cherie all spoke eloquently, with passion and lots of humour about their wines. As the evening went on and the wine flowed there was also an increase in the "banter" between the tutors and with the audience. The atmosphere was (as always at West London Wine School) fun and informative and most importantly inclusive - those of us in the audience, novices and "wine experts" alike enjoyed ourselves.
The winner in the end? Us, in the audience. We all learned something and had a great time. Looking forward to the next one!
