Wine tour offers a great opportunity for seasoned wine lovers to explore more options and take their love to the next level. For individuals who are coming to terms with the fact that they love wine, a wine tour is a way to further educate, acquire knowledge and take things with their newfound love to the next level.
Don’t let my rambling on love for wine and all that discourage you from your planned wine tour. Really, you don’t need to be all over wine to visit a winery. For your next holiday or vacation, you can embark on a wine tour. We have some nice tips to give you to make it a wonderful experience.
1. Make all Arrangements in Advance
Make all inquiries and bookings ahead of time. If you’re planning to go on a wine tour for the weekend, be sure to book a spot in the winery earlier in the week. Wineries have limited availability, you want to make sure they don’t run out of space. Save yourself the disappointment and make an early booking.
2. Make an Early Start
Many new wine enthusiasts go on wine tours and find out there’s a crowd of other fellow enthusiasts. They don’t get the adequate attention they deserve from winemakers. They come home feeling dissatisfied. I’m pretty sure you don’t want that happening to you. That’s why it’s advisable to make a quick and early start of your wine tour to get the service you paid for.
3. Spit if You Have To
If you like something you’ve tasted, go on and have a drink. If not, there’s no need down the whole bottle – or glass, you’re not obligated to drain it all. It’s fine to spit it out if you can’t just take it in. Wine tasting is one of those rare occasions where it’s acceptable to spit. But of course, do that in a civilized manner. Make use of the spittoons – spit into them. You don’t want to spray spit into a fellow enthusiast’s face or drink.
4. Eat As Well
Wine tours also offer opportunities for you to try out local cuisines. Some wineries serve local dishes, don’t be afraid to sample these dishes. If you see something you like, eat it. It’s good for your stomach, especially between wine tastings. Give your stomach something to work on, it healthier that way and reduces the risks of getting ulcers. No one goes on wine tours to writhe in pains the whole time.
5. Your Kids are Equally Covered
It’ll be great to know that wine tours and wineries provide an excellent time for families to bond. If you’re planning to embark on a wine tour with your entire family, look for wineries that also host kids. These wineries offer grape wine tastings for kids – nothing alcoholic.
You’ll also not want to drink wine from the bottle. Drink all your wine from a wine glass.
