Learn the Basics of Tasting Wine
Look, smell, and taste the key components of tasting wines and skills you've had since childhood. Wine tasting is a snap when you know what to be looking, smelling and tasting for. Take a peek at the wine color chart to further enhance your tasting experience.

Wine Tasting Tips
Start with a clear wine glass. The rim of the glass should bend inwards to help funnel aromas to the nose, and allow you to swirl without spilling on your $50 tie. Never hold the glass by its bowl, only by its stem.

Now pour a little wine into your glass. An inch or less is best. If you are tasting several wines, begin with the lightest (sparkling wines, roses, then light whites followed by full-bodied whites) and progress to the heaviest (light reds to more full-bodied reds followed by dessert wines). This will help keep your taste buds more sensitive so you can better appreciate each wine in the series. A sip of water between wines can also help preserve your palate.
