Wine tastings will help the guests to examine and evaluate the quality of wine.

  • Finish drinking wine for the aftertaste.

In horizontal tasting, the wines being served to the guests are from the same vintage but came from different wineries. In this way, keeping the wine variety and same region helps in emphasizing the differences in winery styles.

Full meals are being served also to the guests when showcasing the wines.

There is also some kind of notes after wine tasting and it is called tasting note. It refers to a taster’s written testimony regarding the aroma, taste identification, acidity, structure, texture, and balance of a wine served in the tour. There are online wine communities such as Bottlenotes that let the members keep their tasting notes online and for the reference of others who would want to get the same wine or visit the winery and taste the wine being served there.
