Important Tips for Your First Wine Tasting

Before you head out to Austin for your first wine tasting experience, you may want to know more about what to expect. What is most important is that you have a great time, so be sure to select a winery with excellent reviews. Once you’ve done that, having a few tips to make the event go smoothly can pull everything together.

Come Up With a Budget

The first thing you want to do when planning to attend a wine tasting is deciding a budget. The price of a wine tasting can vary from location to location, with some being free and others costing $50 or more. Take some time to look into the price for the winery you will be visiting to be sure it is in your budget. You should also make sure to include in your budget the cost for a bottle of wine. You’ll likely find one that you want to take home with you.

Feel Free to Ask Questions

While some people know everything there is to know about wine, most of us do not. There’s nothing wrong with that. If you don’t understand something that the wine steward is saying feel free to ask questions about it. If you want to be extra prepared, you can do some research before you head off on your Austin wine tasting trip. Research the area and what grapes are used and what sort of wines are common there. Even a quick trip to Google will give you a leg up before you go.

Consider Taking Notes

When at a wine tasting, you’ll be trying a number of different wines in a short period. It can be difficult to take everything in and remember it when you get back home. Most vineyards will offer you paper and a pen to take notes. You can also bring your own along if you prefer. Write down whatever you want, whether it’s just a short note about which wines you like and dislike or more nuanced notes about the flavor notes of the wines.
