ONE NIGHT PALATE TRAINER

When; Once a month, 6.30pm – 8.30pm

Investment; $49

Our one-night Palate Trainer is an intimate course conducted by Phil Hude, a 20 year veteran in the Melbourne wine industry and owner of Armadale Cellars.

Designed for both novice and connoisseur, this two-hour class will help you gain a better understanding of your own palate, and teach you how to pick out specific wine faults which occur in 1 out of 12 bottles!

Expose your palate to tannin, acid, bitterness, alcohol and TCA (cork taint) in wines. Learn how to identify them by smell and taste, and experience where each occurs on the palate.

This is a fantastic class for beginners, and also a great refresher course for those who have been tasting for years.

Great for corporate events too!

An incredibly well designed course for those interested in understanding wine, Phil is very knowledgeable (and entertaining) and runs through the key elements of wine providing an excellent overview for the beginner. Can’t wait to step up to the Shiraz Challenge!

I was disappointed in the palate trainer course. It’s a shame ‘palate training’ can’t be taught with or at least incorporating some nice wines. It is a very cold venue in the middle of winter and probably a good idea to warn clients about this prior. While Phil is clearly very knowledgeable about the topic and had one or two interesting anecdotes, I found his rambling style frustrating to listen to. My friends and I attended this course as a precursor to the complete wine course but because of our disappointment we will look elsewhere for a wine course to attend.

Great night, Phil was excellent, funny and very knowledgeable. The one-night Palate trainer was more a course on the basics of what makes up the constituents of wine, which was was far better than what I was expecting as is provided some great technical knowledge - would highly recommend anyone to go. Even seasoned wine drinkers.
