Get under the skin of a region and test your taste buds

Want to improve your wine knowledge this year, but not quite sure where to start? Here are a few reasons why Decanter’s Discovery Theatres are the perfect starting point…

Learn from the winemaker

Winemakers and wine experts create an intimate and relaxed environment for a truly in-depth learning experience. From the general to the obscure, if you have any questions about the wine, you’ll be hard pressed to find something they can’t answer.

Taste, taste, taste

Best way to learn about wine? Taste and compare

With a focus on particular regions or grape varieties, these sessions provide an opportunity to taste wines side by side, magnifying those subtle differences you perhaps wouldn’t have picked up on before.  Make sure to write up tasting notes throughout the class, not only is it a great way to train your palate, it will be a lot easier to remember your thoughts on the wine when you come back to it later.

Meet other Oenophiles

Chances are the person sitting next to you is as thirsty for knowledge as you are; share your interest and love of wine with other like-minded people. You may even end up getting tips from an experienced taster.
