5 Tips for Savoring a Wine Tour

If you’re planning to visit Wisconsin, visiting a wine tour is a great way to have some fun with your family and friends. You’ll be able to sample a wide variety of wines and maybe find a new favorite to bring home with you. Here are five tips to savor every moment of a wine tour.

Ask Questions

Ask the guide questions during the wine tour about the wines you enjoy most and the winemaking process. The guides will be happy to share their knowledge with you. You can ask how the grapes are grown or what food goes best with the wine you’re tasting. The tour guide can also recommend nearby restaurants and local attractions 

Take Notes

After a few tastings during the wine tour, you may have difficulty keeping track of which wines you’ve enjoyed the most. Take notes along the way so you can pick up your favorite bottles at the end of the tour. Don’t be afraid to try wines you’ve never had before. You might just find a new favorite!

Wear Comfortable Clothing

During the wine tour, you’ll be strolling through vineyards. Wear comfortable clothing and shoes that you don’t mind getting dirty. You may also want to bring a hat and sunglasses to protect you from the sun.

Book Transportation

You may want to book transportation to and from the wine tour if it’s not included. The little sips of various wines can add up to not being sober enough to drive. Get a taxi or bring along a designated driver with you.

Avoid Wearing Perfumes or Colognes

Wearing perfume or colognes to a wine tour can interfere with the aromatics of the wines. You can miss out on the subtle nuances of the wines you might enjoy. The scent may be unpleasant for other guests as well.
