Format of Yats Wine Tasting
Yats Wine Cellars regularly hold non-commercial wine tasting to help wine enthusiasts expand their knowledge of wine in a most enjoyable and affordable way. These tastings are different from other commercial tastings. The wines from these tastings are not sponsored by a wine merchant and there are no salesmen. Participants are in the company of people of all ages from all walks but with one common interest – wine.
Tickets can be purchased in advance at a discount. Each ticket comes with five tasting stubs. The wines are lined up at a wine service station. Present a ticket at this station to surrender a stub to redeem a tasting pour (roughly 50ml) of a wine of chosen by the guest.
Someone will always be available to answer questions or discuss topics pertinent to the theme of the wines in the event. Otherwise the event is a self-paced tasting exercise that is the most economical way to sample expensive and rare wines.
Theme of this event
This event turns our attention to the Southern Hemisphere where fine wines have been produced for a long time. These wines are well known to be good value, occasionally great, but mostly good for immediate consumption not really worthy of precious cellar space.
Global Warming threatens the superiority of European wines. Hopes for a better future of fine wine now rest with regions south of the Equator although they are also not spared if things continue to worsen.
About the Wines
Included in this tastings are some slightly aged wines as well as reds and whites that are probably designed for early drinking. The lineup is usually quite large so participants have to pick and choose the wines to taste. There are enough bottles to accommodate all the tickets sold. Bottles are not replenished after they have been consumed. Pouring size is around 50-55ml.
