Last week, I was invited to a wine tasting event with Bouchard Finlayson Vineyards and a day with the Blacc Cellar Club, which was held at The Oyster Box hotel in Durban.
It was my first time attending an event that was strictly about wine tasting as I usually attend wine and food pairings most of the time.
Although I was a bit nervous and had fear of not knowing what to do or what to expect, it was a great experience and a lot of fun, but I feel if I came fully prepared for it I would have enjoyed myself even more.
What really came to my mind after the event was, ‘how people can best prepare for their first-ever wine tasting’? Because it felt like I failed myself.
So, whether you fancy yourself a wine connoisseur or you are just beginning to learn about great wines, these tips by Wine Spectator can lift our ambiance.
