Tips for an Enjoyable Wine Tour

If you love wine, why not plan your next holiday trip around it? These days, vineyards like The Berry Farm in Margaret River offer wine-tasting tours that connoisseurs will surely enjoy. If it’s your first time to embark on such an outing, however, be sure to keep these tips in mind to make it more enjoyable:

Go Easy on the Perfume
As a wine lover, you know that scent plays an important role in the appreciation of wines. When you go on a wine tour, keep perfumes and other beauty products to a minimum as their fragrance can interfere with your sense of taste. Doing so will also be considerate of the other tourists.

Eat and Stay Hydrated
You’ll no doubt be sampling many of the vineyard’s bestselling vintages, so there’s always the possibility of getting a bit tipsy during the tasting. To prevent this, be sure to nibble on something along the way; the emptier your stomach, the sooner the alcohol will affect you. If you want to avoid hangovers, drink plenty of water in between wines as well.

Wine and Dine

Most wineries also have a café or restaurant that serves delectable meals cooked using local produce and incorporating the vineyard’s wines. If all that wine tasting has whetted your appetite, what better way to indulge your taste buds?
