As well as red and white wine, we had grapes and crackers to enjoy with our cheese!

Wine Tasting!! 18th October

Yesterday we hosted a Wine Tasting activity for our students!

The tastings were at 2pm and 5.30pm so both our morning and afternoon students could enjoy a few drinks after finishing class!

We had 5 wines to try; a mix of White, Dessert, Rose and Red!

Our selected wines were: Chardonnay (Eaglehawk), Moscato (Gossip), Rose (Sacred Hill), Shiraz (Eaglehawk), Merlot (Black Label).

The students then had to guess the alcohol percentage, price and country where the wine was from!

Mario proved to be quite the wine connoisseur, guessing almost everything right!

 

A fun time was had by all 🙂

Wine Tasting! 14th July

On Friday we sadly sad farewell to two of our wonderful Lexis Byron Bay staff members!

Ellie, one of our fantastic teachers, is returning to England and Naomi, our amazing homestay co-ordinator, is travelling New Zealand and Asia before also returning to England!

As it was the last activity Naomi would be leading, after much consideration, she decided Wine Tasting would be a good option! She wasn’t wrong; it was a great way for herself and Ellie to end their time here at Lexis! And the students had fun too!!

IMG_7091

They had 9 different bottles of wine to try, including White (Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Grigio, Chardonnay and Riesling), Rose (White Zinfandel) and Red (Shiraz, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and a Mixed Blend)!

Everyone marked down the score they would give each wine out of 10, the flavours they could taste and what they thought the price per bottle was. There was no clear favourite but the whites were definitely preferred!

Both Ellie and Naomi will be very sorely missed and we wish them all the very best for the future!!
