Wine 101: How to Taste Wine

Today’s Wine 101 post is about how to taste wine. We’ve found a helpful video from Wine Spectator that we want to share with you. This video breaks wine tasting down into four S’s – See, Sniff, Sip, Summarize.

One tip we’ve found helpful is to breathe out through your nose after you swallow but before you open your mouth. This is a great way to figure out the nuances of the wine from the back of your palate.

Do you have a way to taste wine that differs from this? Did you find this video helpful?
