How to wine taste like a professional

It’s crucial to ensure that your palate is cleansed and hydrated. You also shouldn’t brush your teeth soon before wine tasting

Prepping the palate

Glassware is of vital importance in wine tasting. You do not need an expensive glass, but make sure you use a classically-shaped, clean wine glass.

Glassware

It is time to pour some wine. Now, is the wine clear or gloomy? Clear wine usually suggests it has been filtered.

Pour a glass of wine

Color

If you swirl the glass and then stop you will observe that the wine will create tears or legs as the wine flows down.
