Robert Gorjak WSET Diploma


In this workshop we will walk through the award-winning wines and try to get to the characteristics of the vintage, the micro-location and the winemaker's general approach to vinification and the profile of the winemaker himself through organoleptic characteristics. We will also touch on a topic that is not often on the menu - whether sauvignon, like chardonnay or riesling, can express the growing area and whether it is a variety that ages well.
