Don't be a wallflower or a silent partner. Ask some questions about the winery. The host will most likely be delighted to discuss it.
Tips for Basic Tasting
You can visit a winery even if you are just an amateur or beginner. You don't have to have any kind of professional certification or experience. Furthermore, you can taste the wine quickly if you like. You do not have to stretch it out for a long time.
Take heed to the following suggestions, and you will be a good wine taster quickly.
First, grab the stem of the glass and pour wine into it. Your glass needs to be clear and very clean.
Examine the wine by looking at it next to a white light or background. Take notice to its clarity and its color.
Next, you will swirl your glass so that the wine emits some scents.
Now, sniff the wine, and take your time doing so.
You can now sip your wine. Hold the wine in your mouth for several seconds so that you can truly capture the essence of it before you swallow it.
Think about your opinion of the wine. Take this time to ask the host any questions that you might have about the attributes of the wine or the host's opinions.
Do the same thing with the next wine sample as many times that you need to. You can skip the second to the fourth step if you need to.
Feel free to ask any questions of the winery staff that you need to ask. They are there to help you and show you how to become a pro at wine tasting.
Describing the Wine With Eloquence
You don't have to make your commentary long. You can just say that you like it or you do not like it. Alternatively, you can:
Say that the wine is acidic, tart or sour.
Describe it by smell.
Talk about the balance or sweetness.
Describe the fullness of the wine in your mouth.
Most of all, fully enjoy the experience.
