I have experienced wine tasting in different countries and the difference in attitude towards both wine and wine tasting is definitely cultural.
Many years ago followed an adult education class in wine appreciation and since then also been a member of wine clubs in Dulwich and Brussels.
Travelled to several wine producing areas, Oregon, New Zealand and Languedoc, Bordeaux visiting vineyards and sampling as I went
I started wine tasting so I could get better value for money from my wine purchases -to understand what I like and what really good wine tastes like. Biggest factors balance and value for money. Love all the 'fizzy' wines.
British and moved to Loughborough from Brussels for work about 2 years ago.
