Join us for the wine challenge of a lifetime and discover how well you really know your Shiraz. ‘Blind-tasting’ from a selection of 12 Shiraz styles, your superior knowledge of its unique characteristics will make you the winner of the evening!

This exclusive Le Cordon Bleu ‘blind-tasting’ wine workshop will develop your palate and sensory skills, as participants pit their wits against the group to identify the 12 different Shiraz styles from a selection of: aged, under 10 years old, French Shiraz, imported, blend, Australian styles, and varietal.

Your ultimate challenge is to:

  • Guess the young & old wines;
  • Tell the French from Australian;
  • Find the 2 imported;
  • Find the blend.

The winner will reserve the right to feel superior for the rest of the evening!
