Test your wine knowledge, brush up on Australian wine and maybe win a prize in our Tasting Blind Club Quiz.

We’ve converted our UK Tasting Blind Club into an online Tasting Blind Club Quiz, with the next session on Monday 9 November (7pm – 7.45pm GMT). Tune in from home, pour yourself a glass of Aussie wine and get your thinking caps on. As well as having some fun, this is an opportunity to keep up your studies and refresh your Australian wine knowledge.

Quizmaster and Master of Wine, Emma Symington will take you through four rounds of questions, with ten questions per round. For the first two rounds, have a look at our Australian Wine Discovered Facilitator Guides for Margaret River and Grenache. Emma will be basing the questions on information contained in these guides. The second two rounds will cover other aspects of Australian wine as well as a ‘mixed bag’ of questions more broadly across the world of wine.

This online quiz is perfect for wine students preparing for their WSET, MW or Court of Master Sommeliers exams, but anyone from the trade is very welcome.

The quiz will take place on Microsoft Teams and it will last around 45 minutes. You don’t require a Teams account, we will send you a link to join the session, simply click this link at or just before 7pm (GMT).

Emma will go through the answers at the end, and we’re trusting you to mark yourselves. The three participants with the highest scores will each win a bottle of Australian sparkling wine (UK addresses only).

If you’re not already familiar with Australian Wine Discovered, this is Wine Australia’s comprehensive, free education programme. It’s all you need to know about Australian wine in one place, it’s free to use and completely flexible. The programme covers key regions, grape varieties and topical themes such as old vines and sparkling wine and offers everything from regional overviews and winery case studies to the latest innovations and research. With comprehensive guides, powerpoint presentations, images, maps and videos, it’s a great resource whether you’re training your team, preparing for an event, researching, or continuing your wine education.
