Sensory Tasting
Quivira’s Sensory tasting takes wine education to the next level. The wine sensory experience is designed to help all level of wine tasters develop the ability to identify aromas and flavors profiles of wines by learning about aroma development from grapes in the vineyard to the production in the winery. Our staff teaches you how chocolate, cloves, smoke, and caramel actually get into wine. We will also discuss the soils of Quivira’s property and the senses they impart to the wine: cement, moss, metallic, mushroom cave, newly mown hay and forest floor. Your journey will become personal, as you go through multiple stations that will allow you to train your nose and make memory anchors from various aromas found in wine for you to identify. This is an amazing sensory experience. Seating is limited.
