The Super Wine Tasting Series Masterclass: A Study in Sensory Evaluation

On June 28, 2020 the Lehigh Valley Chapter of the American Wine Society (LVAWS) is offering a Master Class on wines and wine tasting. Jay Bileti, AWS Director of Membership, will present. Jay is a certified International Wine Master and his writing has appeared in publications such as The American Institute of Wine and Food, American Wine on the Web, Arizona Vines and Wines, and Wine and Cuisine Magazine. Jay has been active on the wine competition circuit for more than 25 years, judging in competitions all around the world. He has also spoken at various technical industry seminars on sensory evaluation.

Jay’s program will include exercises to help us learn how our brain processes sensory information of wine that we are drinking. He will also discuss aspects of wine such as visual, taste, touch, wine balance (sugar, acid, alcohol level), smell, oaks (French versus American), as well as wine glassware and wine scoring. Attendees will participate in exercises to determine faults and smells, wine aromas and tannins.

The Master Class will run from 2-5pm on Sunday, June 28 at the Steel Club (700 Linden Avenue in Hellertown, PA), followed by a dinner at 5pm. Dinner will include pasta stations, chicken, salad, and dessert. The cost is $60 and includes the master class and dinner.  Each attendee must bring 7 wine glasses to participate in the tasting exercises. Please arrive by 1:40. You are encouraged to bring a bottle of wine to share with dinner. If you have dietary needs, let Jan know so arrangements can be made.
