Wine Spectator School

Make pairings that work...

before you start the tasting
  • If you have not already done so, print out the following materials which are also available in the Intro to this course:

  • Tasting Guidelines and Course Supplies
    This details the wines and foods you'll need to complete the tasting.

    Tasting Guide
    NOTE: This PDF contains all the pages that you see on-line in Module 5. Print out one Tasting Guide for the whole group. The leader will use this step-by-step guide as a roadmap to conduct the tasting.

    Pairing Principles
    Each person in your tasting group will need a Pairing Principles handout. As you work through the tasting, this is the first handout that you'll complete.
