Wine Tastings

Why wine tasting? There are several reasons why it is important to taste wine.

Firstly to find out if the wine is good, and not faulty. Did you realise that 1 in 12 bottles is faulty for one reason or another! Secondly to find out if the wine will go with the intended food. Another reason could be if you buy wine to store for investment purposes or future use - then it is important that you know if the wine has got enough fruit, acidity and tannins to last for the intended storage period.
