Only a small percentage of the population has a hyper-accurate palate, however, you can develop your wine palate, and now’s the time to do it, in preparation for the South African Wine Tasting Championships (SAWTC).
Convened by “The Flying Sommelier” Jean-Vincent Ridon, the SAWTC offers any wine enthusiast – amateur or professional – the opportunity to put your tasting talent to the test – and this year, visitors to the TOPS at SPAR Wine Show in Durban, Johannesburg and Cape Town will have the chance to put themselves in the running to be one of the lucky few who will travel to France to compete in The World Blind Wine Tasting Championships in October 2019.
How to enter the Search for Super Tasters at the TOPS at SPAR Wine Show:
Simply register at the SAWTC stand in either Joburg or Cape Town, before stepping up to taste up to 30 shortlisted wines on show on Thursday, Friday or Saturday sessions.
SAWTC local competitions take place on the Saturday evening in each location where participants will be required to identify six wines "blind” from the shortlisted SAWTC selection.
