One of our favorite fun and (ahem) educational weeknight diversions in Dublin is wine tasting. We booked ourselves in for an evening of tasting fine Bordeaux wines at Olesya's conveniently located in City Centre.
We looked over a thick booklet of tasting notes while waiting for the evening to get underway.
Olesya's was a charming setting for the evening. I liked how you could use the mirrors to see what was happening around the restaurant.
We began with a comparative tasting of 2 white Bordeaux. We sampled them side by side as a way to note the different character of each.
Febvre wine suppliers told us a bit about the wines and the terroir in which they were grown.
