(Well, not anymore!)
What are the Tasting Secrets That No One Wants You To Know?
Your antioxidants can come from any variety, but to win(e) a fantastic experience, you must bubble up your curiosity.
Are you ready?
Here comes the classified information just for you!
Secret 1: The more you ask, the more you enjoy!
Hey! You aren’t supposed to be a know-it-all, especially when it comes to the winery business. From technical traits to the liquor variety, you can ask your tour guide anything. So, be free for asking as many questions as you want about the Semillon in your glass.
Secret 2: To take notes is to taste better!
Wine-tasting is blissful until your taste buds start enjoying the feeling a bit too much and stop helping you savour. So, if you don’t want your expedition to turn useless, ensure that you behave like a good kid and jot down what you like.
Secret 3: Wine with scrumptious food make the best couple!
If you want a standard for perfect compatibility, you must look at your savoury food with wine in Sydney. What people forget is that the wine-tasting tours experience magnifies with gourmet in one hand and Riesling in another.
Oh. So, you can’t believe it? Let cheese and wine be an example for you.
Secret 4: Let there be no rush!
No one ever likes to hear these two words when they want to have a gala time. The same holds true even for your body during the wine-tasting tours. Rushing from one outlet to another will not only be irritating but also leave you with a sense of regret for not enjoying it.
Take your sweet time, folks!
Secret 5: Fear is for the fools!
The world is your oyster when you’re at a winery in Sydney. Don’t stop yourself from trying out new flavours just because you’re acquainted with others better. It’s time for you to broaden the horizons of your palate.
Secret 6: Smells can be nosy!
So, you poured your favourite, swirled a bit but can’t smell the distinctive aroma?
Blame it on your perfume or any other strong-smelling item. Essentially, the intense scent from others hijacks your nose’s ability to experience the subtle wine flavours.
Now you know that smoking kills, even a great wine-tasting experience.
Secret 7: Outfits can make or break your day!
Don’t believe the classic Hollywood trope ‘heels for the win’, especially on your tasting tours. Long walks and winery hopping can be done the best with comfortable shoes and relaxing clothes.
You can pack your stilettoes with you, just in case you find an Instagram-worthy spot on the way.
Wine-tasting is a life-altering experience, especially if you’re an amateur.
Whether you pick wine tours in Hunter Valley or Hobart area, ensure that you engross yourself in the relaxing experience. As far as the secrets are concerned, you heard it through the grapevine!
