The Cake Wines School of Wine is a light-hearted, high-brow/low-brow look at exciting topics and trends in wine, food and culture!
Hosted by Cake guys Glen Cassidy and Sabino Matera, this is an informal educational style class that gives an insight into the ever evolving world of wine. We’ll taste wine, match food with wine, get into heated debates about wine and generally cause a ruckus, all the while gaining valuable insight, whatever your level of wine knowledge. For this particular session we’ll cover:
- The Cake Wines story – Who the hell are we and what are we even doing here??
- Tuning the senses – Why you smell the things you smell? Colour of wine? Taste Refining / honing your skills… without turning you into a wanker!
- Food + wine matching – How to be a matching ninja!
ABOUT GLEN CASSIDY AND SABINO MATERA
Glen’s path into wine has been far from linear. A love for the juice began early in his adult life, developed through stories and colloquial teachings of his father, to a now trained WSET graduate and founder of Cake. On a diet of guitars, second hand synthesisers, and re-runs of Fargo, Glen is often caught frothing uncontrollably at examples of culture and commerce actually working together…add great wine-making to the mix and he’s likely to self-combust. As excited about the future as he is about the undiscovered back catalogue of Arthur Russell, Glen’s journey has only just begun.
