Getting to Know Wine

Source : Brendan DeBrincat

There’s no better way of getting to know wine than spending a day wine tasting. Choosing the right wine for you can be a daunting task, so exploring the wine region can be the best way of learning your way around the cellar.

Although a winery is an excellent place to learn about wines, learning some basic rules of wine etiquette will help you enjoy your wine tasting experience.

Don’t be afraid to ask the knowledge staff of the vineyard to assist you and provide advice on their best offerings. They are there to help and if you don’t know ask.  Ask them to explain the different types of wine and what you should be looking for in the wine.

Don’t think you have to down a glass of wine that you do not like, you can discard these wines without offending the makers or the staff of the winery. There should be a receptacle for you to spit out the wines anyway.

If you would like to taste a little more of a particular wine, it is acceptable to ask for more of it but it is rude to ask for a second pour on every wine. If you like a wine, order a bottle, that is the whole point of wine tasting, finding a wine you like by sampling various varieties and buying it.
