Introduction to Wine Tasting

Posted on July 8, 2014 by 104 Wine Bar

Tasting costs at wine makers may be pricey. Many wineries in the Napa Area are charging between ten and forty dollars for trying wine at their vineyards. How do you save yourself money and still take part in wine-tasting in Napa and the rest of California’s wine country?

Before you depart, perform an internet search for “free wine-tasting coupons”. You’ll discover various vouchers you can print in the home before you depart. Some vouchers let you taste wine at selected vineyards at no cost, although some are 2 for the cost of just one.

If your wine-tasting excursion includes an over night stay, the resort may frequently offer you vouchers for free wine-tasting. Make sure you always check into the resort before seeing the nearby vineyards to benefit from the economies.

Most wineries allow you to use the winetasting costs toward the purchase of any wine you buy. Make the most of the savings by purchasing a few bottles. It is also possible to cut costs by discussing the taste profile with the vintner. It is a standard exercise which is approved by the tasting area clerks, some times they may give you personal discounts – but don’t expect this kind gesture of hospitality everywhere.

There are a number of wine makers that can allow you sample their wines at no cost. The truth is, a few of the lesser-known wine areas might have quite few, if any, wine makers that bill for taste. The majority are little family-owned vineyards where you’ll find pleasant, un-crowded sampling areas and new wines. See Calaveras County, Livermore, Lodi, Calaveras County, Amador County, Nevada Region and the El Dorado area to find some of California’s emerging wine areas.
