When we first started visiting wineries and doing tasting, we believed that if a 1 or 2 ounce sample tasted great, it would be a good idea to buy lots of wine to take home. Talk about naive! We were tasting at a winery in Indiana and the wine we were given in tasting glasses seemed really, really good. So when it came time to leave, we bought a mixed case of the two wines we liked. When we opened one of the bottles a couple of weeks later, it wasn’t at all what we expected. In truth, it wasn’t even good. We didn’t learn our lesson quickly and this happened again with wine from a winery in Kentucky.
The moral of this story is that when you are tasting several wines sometimes the flavors blend together. A good rule at a new winery is stay a while and drink a glass of wine. If it still tastes good, it’s safe to buy more. We finally learned our lesson!This entry was posted in Adventures in Wining by admin
