We like wine. We taste a lot of wine. We learn more every time we taste; we learn about specific varieties, growing conditions, winemaking techniques, different region characteristics, and mostly, we learn about our own palates. It’s a never ending process, as there’s always more to learn!
In your opinion, what is the best way to taste wine so that you learn the most about a specific variety or wine?
1. Brown bag a bunch of wines and taste them blind
2. Taste several wines side by side and compare vintages, regions, etc.
3. Have an “experienced” wine friend walk you through a tasting, telling you about each wine.
4. Research specific varieties, vintages, and regions, and what effect they have on the wines.
