Great Wine Tasting Events
Wine tasting is a great way to spend an afternoon with family or friends. Arrigoni Winery in Portland, Connecticut offers wine tasting events on a regular basis and by appointment. Below are some tips to best enjoy a wine tasting.
If you have never been wine tasting or it's been awhile, then be sure to take note of these tips to enjoy your experience. Give yourself and those you are going with plenty of time to enjoy the wine and any food you may have during the tasting.
It's a good idea to look up the wine menu and know how much the tasting will cost. Some wineries, like Arrigoni Winery, will have more than one option with several prices and types of wine to choose from. If you are not sure what tasting to pick, ask a server, and they will be happy to help.
Once you have your wine, swirl it around to allow oxygen in the wine, which makes the smell stronger. Smelling the wine before you taste it helps you enjoy the taste more. When you sip the wine, swish it around before swallowing. This gives you a chance to fully enjoy the flavor. You can also spit out the wine if you prefer to.
Don't be afraid to ask plenty of questions about the wine. Your server should be happy to give you a history on the winery and types of wine you are sampling. When your experience is over, you can purchase a bottle of your favorite wine if you like. Make sure to book one of many wine tasting events at Arrigoni Winery.
