    My highly developed taste buds will welcome some help.

    So far I can tell wet from dry, sweet from sour and hot from cold. My wine expertise covers the range 'I like it' and 'I don't like it', I will willingly follow the course. Only problem is the distance from south west Devon to Yorkshire for the onsite parts of the course.

    Well...

    the majority of the course would be distance learning, and for those a long way off, we could make that even more distance learning.

    The final examination could possibly be done somewhere other than Yorkshire even (I travel to Telford open show each year) and the National Competition is in Weston Super Mare every other year, so thats perhaps a possibility too

    I think I would be interested in the course but not sure my palate is up to judging!

    Becoming a judge takes time....the training will take you in the right direction, and at the very least make you a better winemaker. it will be up to each member how far along the course they go

    regards

    Bob, Please count me in.
    I need all the help I can get to pass my Judges exam.
    The sooner the better for me.
    I love learning about winemaking in general anyway & it all goes in the pot for making better wines.

    PS. I have got some more Parsnip wine on the go as I know you are partial to it.

    Silverfox.
