Temecula Wine Tours Tasting Tips

temecula wine tours limoWine tasting should be and is fun. There are however a few things to keep in mind when tasting.

1) Brushing your teeth, chewing gum or eating mints before tasting can dramatically alter the way wine tastes. Start with a neutral palate.

2) The nose plays an important role in how wine tastes. Avoid wearing cologne or perfume. If you must, apply very sparingly.

3) Don’t be afraid to stick your nose in the glass. The way wine smells, “the nose”, plays a big part in how a wine tastes.

4) Don’t be afraid to try new things. There is a lot to explore. If you don’t care for it, use the dump bucket.

5) Almost always, the tasting menu is listed in recommended tasting order; whites before reds, dry before sweet.

6) Tip your server. These folks work hard to provide you with a good experience. Show them a little love.
