From the vinyard to the table

Are you curious?
There are a number of themes for your tasting party, here are a few of our favorites:
- A horizontal tasting is where different wines of the same vintage (year) are tasted. This is a good way of determining which producer or vineyard you prefer.
- A vertical tasting is the same wine from different vintages. This is where vintage variations and the effects of bottle aging are clearly seen. An example would be to compare a '94 pinot noir against a '97 pinot noir from the same winery.
- A fun way to test your knowledge of varieties (cabernet, pinot noir, zinfandel, etc.) is to disguise the bottles and have the tasters guess the variety based on the aroma, color, and taste of the wine.
- Another fun tasting is a "stand off" where wines of one variety and region are paired against wines of the same variety but from a different region. (For example: Bordeaux from France vs. the Cabernets of California or Shiraz from Australia vs. Syrahs from Rhone.)
- A good way to test whether a wine is appropriately priced is to purchase wines of the same variety but with widely varying prices, cover the labels, have the tasting, and then see if the reviews reflect the cost of the wine.
