A few tips to enjoy your wine tasting experience!

When attending the Athens Wine & Art Festival, here are some tips to enhance your wine tasting experience:

  • Avoid wearing perfume or cologne: Strong fragrances can interfere with your ability to smell the wine, which is an essential part of the tasting process.
  • Swirl the wine in your glass: This allows the wine to interact with oxygen, which can help release the wine’s full range of flavors and aromas.
  • Take small sips: This will give you a better chance to identify the various flavors present in the wine.
  • Cleanse your palate: Drinking a sip of water between different wines can help to cleanse your palate, so the flavors from the previous wine don’t interfere with your next tasting.
  • Take notes: With over 500 unique wines to taste, it can be easy to forget which ones you enjoyed the most. Taking notes can help you remember your favorites for future reference.
  • Go slow: If you are serious about tasting rather than drinking the wine, go slow. Otherwise, things will become blurry in no time 🙂 

And remember… the most important part of any wine tasting is to enjoy the experience and the company of fellow wine enthusiasts!
