Enjoying Niagara Wine: The Festival Experience

Back to Home
Attending a fabulous Niagara wine festival will enhance one's knowledge of wine tasting technique and how important good form truly is. Before your adventure, here are a few helpful tips and tricks to keep in mind during a tasting tour:

- Remember that colour is important. The colour of the wine you taste can signify certain flavour properties. Rich grapes will present at opaque and deep in red colour where as lighter sweet wines will be more transparent in a glass.

- Smell is extremely valuable when determining if a wine is right for you. Pungent grapes will give off bitter notes in rich and deep reds. Be sure to remain in tune with flavour notes when sniffing - chocolate, citrus, floral and even coffee are popular undertones that can be detected with the nose.

- Do not take huge gulps of wine! Always sip the wine slowly during the tasting to enjoy the flavor and describe its properties.

- Once the wine glass is empty, do a quick analysis. Does the taste linger within the mouth? Is it full-bodied or light? Does it have any depth?
