How to taste wine like an expert

Want to learn how to taste wine as the experts do?


Eyeballing wine, swirling and sniffing and swishing … it may look complicated or even snobbish, but the traditional wine-tasting technique is actually based on common sense. It’s simply a way to pause for a moment, to stop and think, and to pay attention to the ways that wine impacts on all your senses, from sight and scent to taste, aftertaste, and the overall impression that the wine leaves behind after you’ve finished.

This quick online wine tasting course, one of the most popular wine-related articles on the Web since we first published it here in 1993, is a much evolved and updated version of a series of articles in the late 1980s in The Louisville Courier-Journal, assembled and updated to provide a general overview of wine tasting and wine appreciation.

Divided into 13 easily digested chapters, the course features an introduction to tasting wine, including an appreciation of its sight, smell and taste; a look at the oddities of wine vocabulary; a discussion of “blind” tasting as the most effective way to develop your palate; quick overviews of the wines of various countries and sparkling wines; and a presentation of the University of California/Davis “Aroma Wheel,” an easy way to sort out the variety of aromas and flavors found in wine.

Now grab a corkscrew and a bottle, get something good in your glass, and jump right in.
