For us wine tasting is simply 4 S’s-

  1. The See-holding the glass at an angle, examining the wine for clarity, color, lines, etc.
  2. The Swirl- to add air and free up the wine from having been trapped in a bottle.
  3. The sniff- to get ‘the nose’, ‘bouqet’, aroma of the wine
  4. The Sip-the best part, bringing the wine to your lips, into your mouth and ….
  5. Oh…….5 s’s swallow or spit……of course we swallow!
