Visitors to Food & Drink Expo at the NEC in March will be able to learn how to judge the quality and value for money of wines from around the world in tasting sessions run by the Wine & Spirit Education Trust. Organiser Simone Page believes everybody in the food and drink industry needs to know how to taste wines to a certain standard. She said "The sessions will be relevant to everyone. We should all know how to judge wines so we can advise customers." The trust will be sharing its know-how in free Tasting Technique and Food & Wine Matching sessions throughout the show. The technique sessions will cover the first level of the trust's international diploma. In the matching sessions audiences will learn the rules for marrying wines with food. Their tasting sessions will match smoked fish with white wines, grilled meat with lightweight reds, a salad with acidic reds and a treacle tart with an even sweeter white. The exhibition is organised by William Reed, publisher of The Grocer. For further information visit www.foodanddrinkexpo.co.uk. {{NEWS }}
