Why make a wine tasting a stiff affair where you frown at your glass as if your life depended on it and sniff wine ostentatiously? Why not make it fun, friendly, approachable–the social glue it was before we all started taking it a bit too seriously? Shiv Singh provides guidance on how to organize and conduct a successful wine tasting for wine lovers and friends at home.
You don’t have to be a sommelier to organise a wine tasting. In fact, you don’t even need to know too much about wine. But you must plan well, collect 10-12 tasters, source appropriate wines and stage-manage the evening. Build the excitement, temper the urge to over-pontificate (here’s where spouses play invaluable roles), take your cues from the mood in the room… Here’s how.
