We are almost finished finalizing content at the conference, including six breakout sessions on Friday afternoon, July 24. One of these sessions is a very unique educational seminar on Aromas of Wine, brought to you by WineBow. The topic:
When it comes to evaluating wine, your sense of smell is much more acute then your sense of taste. Wine contains thousands of scents and only a handful of tastes. Learn how to sniff out the differences in varietals from different regions and terroirs in this fun and educational blind tasting led by Sheri Sauter Morano MW. You’ll build your sensory memory bank and a nose for picking out aromas commonly associated with certain varietals.
Sheri is a true expert and will be a great educator. She began her formal wine education at the International Wine Center (IWC) in New York City. In October 2000, she became one of the youngest Americans to complete the rigorous Diploma and the following year passed the Certified Wine Educator exam designed by the Society of Wine Educators. In November 2003, she earned the prestigious title Master of Wine, generally recognized as the highest credential that can be obtained in the wine trade. Sheri has served as the spokesperson for the Wines of France campaign since 2004 and has contributed articles to such publications as The Business of Wine: An Encyclopedia, The World of Wine and Wine Business Monthly. She has been featured in numerous magazines and online publications including Maxim, Marie Claire, Bloomberg News and Fortune and has appeared on television and radio shows around the United States as well as in France.
