Meditation and Yoga Techniques to improve your tasting experience - 8:30am to 9:45am
The best way to start your morning! Developed with Bordeaux accredited tutor and yoga instructor Martine Bounet, this seminar will teach you to refocus and rediscover your sensations, for a better understanding of tasting wine. After a three-step breathing activity, participants will visualize their sensations (acidity, aromas, textures, flavors, volume, etc.). Rather than trying to learn theoretically, each participant will be able to identify and memorize the sensations triggered by wine for a heightened experience. You do not want to miss this wine tasting exercise!

A pairing experiment to activate your taste buds! L’École du Vin de Bordeaux, in partnership with La Maison du Chocolat, will take you on an exploration of your senses through wine and chocolate. Chocolate, like wine, is a product of terroir, varieties, and the passionate people behind each step of the process. This seminar, led by Master of Wine Mary Gorman-McAdams, will take your taste buds on a journey through specific tasting methods, and a cross-tasting to discover the perfect match.
