Swirl and sniff. The two S’s are the basic rules to wine tasting. It’s not going to be easy for starters but you’ll eventually master the techniques of tasting.
Use your taste bud. Your tongue will finally be the judge whether you like the taste or not. Take a sip after swirling and sniffing and figure out how many different flavors you can pick up on.
Go for what you really like. See? Wine tasting isn’t so hard at all. Taste is subjective so the one you like is the best wine. But don’t limit yourself to buying the one same wine. Explore the world of wine and you might just catch another one that suits your taste.
