South African makers, tasters and growers of Shiraz will be able to benefit from the vast experience of internationally renowned guru on olfaction, Alexandre Schmitt, during the next SA Shiraz workshop to be held on 14 November at Kronenburg, Paarl.
SA Shiraz was established in 2008 to serve this niche of the wine industry and for their 10th technical workshop they have succeeded in obtaining the services of Schmitt who consults for some of the largest and most prominent wine producers globally. It will be the first time that South Africans can benefit from his expertise.
Schmitt has been training winemakers on olfactory perception for 15 years through his business Wine & Flavors. After working in the perfume industry in Paris he returned to Bordeaux and was coaxed into applying his particular skills in the wine industry.
