The 5 S's of Wine Tasting
Updated: Apr 25, 2021
SEE - the white wine should be clear, and if it's red it should have a very deep color.
SWIRL - Swirl the wine. Swirling releases the aromas.
SMELL - Smell the wine. Smelling the wine allows you to capture the flavor with your nose as well as your tongue.
SIP - Swish the wine around in your mouth. Let the wine sit on the top of your tongue to suck the air through it. Finally
SWALLOW - Swallow and enjoy the taste of your wine.
