How to Taste Wine


Observing the Wine
-Look at the wine in the glass. Closely examine the color and clarity. Using a white napkin is a good way to check the color of the wine.
-Tilt the glass and swirl. This helps with increasing the surface area of the wine.

Smelling the Wine
-Make sure to smell the wine.
– Stick your noise into the glass and inhale.
-You will notice the various aromas (berries, vanilla, oak and more).

 Tasting the Wine
-Take a small sip and roll it around on your tongue.
-Swallow and take another sip to get the full experience of the wine.
