When you are attending wine tasting events for the first time, there are a few important things you should be aware of so that you don’t have any problems or don’t ruin the experience for other people. First, be cognizant of your limits. Don’t consume too much alcohol. If you’ve had too much to drink, or the host won’t allow you to drink any more, politely ask to be taken home. Drink earlier in the day than when attending wine tasting events. Eat ahead of time.
When attending wine tasting events, avoid drinking the grape juice directly from the vine. The acidity of the juices can easily overpower your taste buds and make you think you’re drinking wine instead of the grape. Avoid chewing on the grapes either. Even when you sip slightly, the alcohol can often add to the overall alcohol level before you even realize it.
In addition to not having too much to drink, the stronger the flavor of the wine, the less the aftertaste will be. You are encouraged to smell the wine, not only taste it. Smelling the wine will help you determine if there are subtle flavors or stronger flavors in the piece. This is also a great time to brush your tongue on the flavors of the grape, because you’ll notice any flavors you didn’t notice before. The tips above will ensure that at a wine tasting event, you’ll receive many benefits, but you’ll also enjoy the experience.
