What Is Wine Tasting?

Wine tasting is a nice social event where you have the opportunity to sample various wines. Usually this will involve a series of reds and whites, sometimes even rose. Some experiences may allow you to pair certain wines with food like cheese, fruit and even truffles.

This experience is all about noticing the differences in each different wine. There’s a lot of variation when it comes to flavour, age and dryness. For example, you may have a choice of two chardonnay’s, one may be light and fruity, another may be drier. You’ll learn to notice these variations and find a wine suited to your pallet.
