Etiquette for Wine Tasting

Kamran A. Khawar pursues a number of interests in his free time, including travel and exploring different world cuisines. Additionally, as a co-founder of a wine tech company, Kamran Khawar enjoys wine tasting.

Wine tasting can be a great way to try out different wines, as well as an excellent opportunity to spend time with family and friends. However, when tasting with others, there are some etiquette guidelines that one should follow so that everyone gets maximum enjoyment out of the experience.

First of all, it’s a good idea not to wear strongly scented perfume or similar product. Smelling the wine is a part of the tasting process, and strong scents can make it more difficult to focus on the wine’s aroma.

Once you begin the tasting, it’s a good idea to wait to share what you think of a particular wine until everyone you’re with has also had the chance to sample it and evaluate it independently. After that, it’s fine to share what you think of the wine. If you don’t like a wine, you shouldn’t feel obligated to finish it. In fact, containers where guests can spit wine out are available and can also be used if a person is concerned about consuming too much alcohol.
