There's no excuse to stay uneducated on Austria's world class wines - Taberna Wine Academy is offering the perfect set of wine classes to put Local Noses "in the know" about Austrian wines.
Austria is a very small country that produces cool climate wines that "punch above their weight" so to speak in both quality and value.
Local Noses now have a chance to learn all about what makes cool climate Austrian wines unique and worth seeking out...starting with answering the first question...what is a cool climate wine?
TLN's own expert Nose, Ying Hsien Tan - a.k.a. Raptor Nose, who is the owner of the Taberna Wine Academy, is offering three very interesting and rewarding wine courses to help Local Noses get smart about Austrian wine during the month-long Austrian Wine Experience promotion.
Below are the basic course descriptions and costs. To register contact Taberna @ 6762 5570 or book via TLN's Event Page
Introduction to Austrian Wine
This course will do just what it says, give participants a broad, generalist introduction and understanding of Austrian wines. Ying will explain many of the factors that impact Austria's "cool climate" wine styles, then illustrate his points with a tutored tasting of 9 Austrian wines (white and red). This is an excellent chance to get smart about Austrian wine.

Austria's Main Grape Varieties in Depth
This course will shine a spotlight on Austria's indigenous grape varietals, some of which are not grown anywhere else in the world. This is an excellent chance to expand your wine knowledge and tasting experience outside of the well-known international grape varieties like Cabernet or Sauvignon Blanc and discover unique, and really delicious wines made from Grüner Veltliner, Zweigelt or Rotgipfler through a tutored tasting of 12 wines. Don't miss it!

Austria's Best – a Ying selection
Ying Hsien Tan got his TLN "Nose" name - Raptor Nose - because like a raptor he is brutally honest about wine quality, plus he is a very talented wine taster with an exacting and discerning palate capable of assessing wine quality. The Austria's Best class will offer participants a tutored tasting of 9 of the finest wines from Austria available in Singapore selected by Ying himself. This will be a top-quality wine tasting afternoon that will also instruct Local Noses on how to detect finesse and refinement in wine.
Date: Saturday, 1 June
Time: 3pm - 6pm
