Blind wine tasting experience
Julia Leijola, anthroenology.org
Discover a different way to taste wine and travel through the South African wine regions with anthroenologist Julia Leijola.
We will be blind tasting three white and three red wines as well as an orange wine. These will be conventional, biodynamic, or natural wines.
The tasting will be done blind so that participants can focus on what they are actually tasting without being influenced by their knowledge of or assumptions about the wine in question.
Saturday October 14th 2017 from 4 until about 6pm.
Please e-mail email@example.com with your details (number and name of participant(s)) to register for this event.
Price: 20CHF per person
Max. amount of participants: 20.
Registered participants will be invited to arrive shortly before 4pm so that the event can start promptly.
No previous knowledge of wine tasting is required.
Anthroenology is an anthropological research project on wine and issues of sustainability, morality, and the redefinition of taste.
The project asks a deceptively simple question about consumption and political economy: when beliefs or ethics come into conflict with taste or similar expectations, which one wins, and why? Or, asked in a slightly different matter: how do our beliefs about the world affect the way we taste? The project is thus concerned with key issues in contemporary economic anthropology, but does so through a lens that we believe to be unique: the intersection of beliefs and the actual sensory experiences of consumption.
