Wine lovers will have the chance to hone their palates in the name of charity at a wine tasting with a difference hosted by Eastern Daily Press and Norwich Evening News food and drink writer Andy Newman.
The 'Great Grape Challenge' promises to be an evening of fun learning about the 'top ten' grape varieties in aid of the Norfolk and Norwich Association for the Blind (NNAB).
Mr Newman said: 'You can read in books about what each of the main grape varieties is meant to smell and taste like, but in the end the only way to really learn is through using taste prompts.
'So, for example, the only way to find out if Sauvignon Blanc really does smell of gooseberries is to stick your nose in a glass of it and then in some gooseberries.
'With over 50 taste prompts to try ranging from new-mown grass and vanilla to leather and petrol, it's a great way to educate your palate, whether you are an experienced wine drinker or a complete novice.'
