Sample Like a Pro:

  1. See the color of the Wine. As white wine ages the color gets darker, and as red wine ages the color gets lighter. Color can give a hint as to what type of grape was used to make the wine. Color can also help you determine how light or full bodied the wine will taste and feel. The lighter the color, like rose wines, the lighter the wine should feel in your mouth.
  2. Swirl & coat the side of the glass to help the wine open up and release aromas for the next step.
  3. Smell or sniff three times and come up with three words to describe the wine.
  4. Sip and you’ll taste…. sweet (sugar in grapes), sour (fruit acid in grapes), & bitter (from alcoholo & tannins).
