|Wine Tasting in Paso Robles|
This weekend, in some parts of the country, the mint julep will be the most popular drink, but in beautiful Paso Robles Wine Country, most people will spend the weekend enjoying a glass or two of wine. With over 200 wineries and near perfect weather, wine tasting in Paso Robles—or anywhere on California’s Central Coast—is a popular activity. The Wine Wrangler will help you get the most out of your wine tasting experience; with a few questions, our expert drivers can pair you with the wineries that best match your palate, and while you’re riding around enjoying the experience, they can entertain you with a few good stories about Paso Robles Wine Country.
Every tasting room you visit will bring a different experience, but to make the most out of your day, here are 3 tips for a more enjoyable experience.
Don’t confuse your palate: Tasting wine—or anything else for that matter—requires a unique connection between your sense of smell and taste. Since wine is particularly nuanced, the best way to enhance your palate is by not confusing it with other sensory input. In other words, don’t wear perfume, cologne, scented lotions, or flavored lip balms when heading out to taste wine and make sure not to eat right before—or, even chew gum—since flavors can linger on your tongue.
Use your senses: When it comes to wine tasting, everyone has their own style. If you haven’t done much wine tasting, it’s easy to get intimidated, but listen to us—relax. By using and trusting your senses, you’ll not only have a great experience, but develop your own style. Focus on smell, color, texture, and finally taste.
Spit: Trust us, no one likes to enjoy a glass of wine more than we do, but when it comes to tasting wine, it’s better to sip, then spit. Not only does this method help keep your palate fresh and engaged, but it also helps you pace yourself—which is really important if you plan on tasting a lot of wines over a long period of time.
