      How to Recognise Faults in Wine

      Selling a faulty wine is bad for the reputation of your business, and not being able to identify the fault only makes matters worse. Why might a wine smell of drains? Or of farmyards? Are faults increasing? This seminar will show you how to recognise the most common faults. The causes will be explained and you will discover how some faults may be avoided by careful wine storage.
