Wine Sensory Fault Evaluation training
July 29-30, 2017
Advice: A session minimum paid registration of 8 people must be met by the deadline, as registration fees completely support the session.
For session details see attached agenda.
Place: Metropolitan State University at Denver
Hospitality Learning Center
1190 Auraria Pkwy, Denver, CO
Value: Learn Quantitative Descriptive Analysis (QDA) techniques and how to use them for evaluating wine fault aromas.
QDA training emulates the proverb that says, “If you give a man a fish, he will hunger tomorrow, but if you teach him how to fish, he will never hunger again.” QDA teaches you how to better understand your personal sense of smell, and to dependably and quantitatively evaluate separate aromas, with particular emphasis in these sessions on wine fault aromas.
This training will also qualify panelists to serve on the Wine Sensory Fault Evaluation Panel, as one part of the Colorado Wine Industry Quality Assurance Program.
Limits: No less than 8 or no more than 12 trainees per session. If less than 8 registrants sign up for a session by the payment deadline, that session will be cancelled, and payment will either be returned to registrants or be applied to another session.
Details: Pre-payment is the only thing that constitutes a guaranteed registration. Deadline for receiving payment is June 9, 2017. Registration is $250/person.
Payment is by check or money order made out to Colorado State University, and should be sent to:
