If you are a wine lover this post is for you. You won’t need to know all the wine tasting rules before you can have a great wine tasting experience after reading this. Here are some great wine tasting tips for you: 1. Swirling and Sniffing is a good way to start Before tasting the wine, swirl your wine glass to allow some oxygen into the wine glass, then sniff the wine with your nose. 2. Swish and Swallow or Spit Out the Wine Take a small quantity of the wine you want to taste into your mouth, let it swish and dance round your tongue before you swallow or spit it out. 3. Know the wine before you taste it It is good to do a little research about any wine you wish to taste before tasting it. This will help you know what to expect in terms of aroma and taste. 4. Take Notes Don’t go tasting different wines without taking notes. For each wine you taste, put down the name and the details of your experience. 5. Take Water Occasionally If you are going to taste different wine brands, taking water will help clear your taste buds and keep you hydrated. Adequate hydration will keep you from gulping in too much wine as you taste. To ensure you don’t feel woozy while tasting, go with your nuts or cheese board.
