A few wine tasting tips:

  • 80% of taste is smell …so SWIRL, This take a good SNIFF, then TASTE.  NOTE: Perfume or cologne will interfere with your (and your neighbors) enjoyment; consider not wearing any when you go wine tasting.
  • Most fine wine is best served at abut 60º.  Hold your wine glass by the STEM so you don’t heat-up the wine.
  • If you don’t care for a wine on the flight, think about why, ask the staff questions. Wine captures a place, time, nature, and the skill of a winemaker. There is a reason for every wine and it’s often worth wondering why.
