Wine Tasting Guide

Wine TastingSight

The first thing to do is using the sense of sight is to observe the color of the wine. You will be observing the wine to prepare for the taste.

With the wine glass it can help to get a white napkin or tablecloth to be used as a background then tilt the glass at 45 degrees up to the light then try to observe the color of the wine.

Swirl the wine around the glass and watch it roll back. If it rolls back slowly it indicates a heavier wine. Is the wine clear or cloudy? Does it have any sediment? You will learn that all of these things will tell you something different about the uniqueness of each wine.


Now it is time to smell the wine-further preparing you for the taste that is forthcoming. Swirl the wine glass for about 10 to 12 seconds to release molecules in the wine before smelling it. You can repeat this process as often as necessary in order for you to get an impression of the wine’s flavor.

There are 2 techniques that are used in wine tasting: a) take a light whiff, formulate an initial impression then take a deeper whiff or b) take only one deep whiff and formulate an impression then whichever technique you employ after doing so think about the aroma. Do you smell the fruity aromas of apples, lime, lemon, grapefruit, cherry, blueberry, plum, and others? How about a woody smell or that of oak, which may reveal the type of barrels the wine has been aged in.


Finally it is time to taste the wine. Taste is vital because this will help you decide whether you enjoy the wine or not. If you have done a god job observing and smelling the wine, the taste should not be a complete surprise.

The taste buds are a great help with the process of discerning wine as they are the ones that detect sweet, sour, salty, and bitter subtleties.. To start with, take a sip of wine and to get the most out of your taste buds try to swirl the wine around your mouth as this action allows all taste buds to participate in the process.

This is actually the reason why you see wine tasters have funny faces when taking a sip of wine they are trying to determine whether the wine is sweet by using the taste buds at the tip of the tongue, the middle of the tongue has the capability to detect salty taste while the sides have the sour tastes and lastly bitterness is detected by the back of the tongue.

While swirling, try to determine the wine’s texture: heavy or light? As a comparison, light has the texture of low-fat milk while a heavy has the texture of heavy cream. The next consideration is to think about flavour. Is the wine sweet, dry, or fruity? The last consideration is the aftertaste which is what remains after you’ve spit out the wine. Many wine connoisseurs spit the wine onto a bucket at wine tasting events – and determine if the taste was a pleasant one and how long it lasted. If they swallow too much they will become intoxicated and their senses will dull.
