Signs, Customs and Monikers
Few things are as satisfying as a deep, rich wine. The drink is perfect for any dinner occasion or social gathering. It’s the beverage of choice for many occasions, and it can be enjoyed both by itself or with your favorite food pairing. However, if you’re new to the world of wine tasting, you might not know how to start! That’s where help from wine somm comes in handy. We’ll discuss 10 signs that will help you get started on your first visit to wine country- whether it be Napa Valley or France!
The first thing to keep in mind is that wine country can be overwhelming. There are so many different varietals, regions, and countries to consider when you’re just starting out. To help narrow down your search for the perfect glass of vino, think about one or two things that interest you most. For example: maybe it’s the aromas, flavors and textures of a particular region- like California! Maybe you want to try wines from all around the world without having to purchase them by the case (that would get expensive).
Have fun with this decision; there’s no wrong choice! Just remember not to overthink it too much since doing so might cause stress during an already stressful situation! It can also help if you ask yourself what types of wines you’ve enjoyed in the past. This will help give you an idea of what to expect from your first trip to wine country!
The second thing that is important for anyone who wants to go on a proper tasting tour is research, research, and more research! You’ll want to learn as much as possible about wineries or vineyards before heading out. The best place online (in my opinion) would be TripAdvisor; it’s filled with reviews left by fellow visitors like yourself- so there are no surprises when you show up at the front door! That way, not only can you prepare ahead of time but also narrow down which places might appeal most to your specific tastes.
