Wine: The Big Picture

How to Taste Wine

Unlike many wine programs, we’ll start with how to taste wine first. Why? Because it’s tough to follow the thread of wine discussions on any other topic without understanding the meanings of the words we use to describe variations of wine style – the wine lingo.  Before we even tackle the basics of what wine is, we need to define our terms. What do we mean when we call a wine ‘dry?’ Which quality in wine is described as ‘body?’ Start here and get a handle on how we taste wine, which senses we use and what we look for. Learn how to taste wine like a pro first before moving on to other wine topics. You’ll be glad you did.
