Tasting rooms come in all shapes and sizes. There are a bunch, a big bunch, of wines to try. It seems a bit overwhelming at first. My advice is to plan ahead as much as possible-even if it is a day trip. With hundreds of choices, you can narrow it down to a few like appellation or varietal, white or red wine, organic or sustainable. The list goes on. Have fun with it because the last thing I want you to do is take wine too seriously. We believe wine is made to be shared with friends and family-and taking home a bottle that you enjoyed in order to share with them is the best part of the experience. About the video: the Wine Road, a marketing organization for northern Sonoma County wineries, produces some great videos involving their events, winemaker tips, inside information on vineyards and today’s subject: wine tasting tips. If you plan on visiting the wine country to find some great wine I think you’ll find this a fun way to guide your wine tasting experience. And at 1:23 you’ll see my husband Ed who shares one of his tasting tips. And like Robert says—no cologne! Now where is my Dino cup…I’m ready for a taste of wine.
