Stonewall, Texas – January 29, 2020 – Kuhlman Cellars will host a Vina Vita University Aromas class on February 16, 2020 from 11 am – 1 pm where students will decode the aroma of wine.  This second installment of Kuhlman Cellars’ wine appreciation series, led by Certified Sommelier Brandi Pratt, will help students make sense of how to taste wine using the sense of smell, which will culminate in a fun blind tasting “competition.”

This class brings understanding of how smell works and how to use the sense of smell to tailor food and wine preferences to give us a deeper understanding of wine.

Class activities include: 

  • Explore how our sense of smell defines how we enjoy and understand wine
  • Develop your own smell and flavor memories
  • Learn tools to understand how your personal history and memories influence the wines you drink
  • Smell commonly found wine flavors and understand what they mean, including common fruit, vegetables, spices, wood, and herbs 
  • Taste the 2018 Viognier, 2018 Hensell, 2017 Newsom Vineyards Sangiovese, 2016 Reserve Merlot and 2016 KanKar and explore the aromas and tastes of each wine
  • Participate in a Blind Tasting “competition” for fun during which scents have been added to wine for students try to identify.
