Tips for every Wine Enthusiast

As a wine enthusiast, one of the things I enjoy most is the wide range of experiences I find when drinking and enjoying a good bottle of wine. The variety of wines is so great that it never ceases to amaze, one must be willing to explore and continuously be surprised.

Whether you are a wine enthusiast, amateur, or novice, the best tip I can give you is to EXPLORE wine.

It is very easy to find a wine that we like so much that we don’t want to try a different one, this is a serious mistake. Never stop exploring, the world of wine is so vast that it will always surprise you. From the grape, the region, the country, the winemaking process, there are so many factors that affect the quality, aromas, and flavors of a wine that make all wines unique and special.

Apart from discovering a wide range of wines, another way to explore and appreciate wine is through wine accessories that help complement the experience. Try tasting your wine with different glasses, crystal, large, small, each glass contributes significantly to the experience of enjoying wine. Use decanters, aerators, and the slow decanting system to discover the evolution of your wine in each of its oxygenation and oxidation stages and processes.

Keep in mind that for the best wine experience you need to make sure you follow a couple of rules to ensure that the wine you drink is in proper condition.

1) Serve your bottle of wine at the correct temperature, between 9 and 11 degrees C for white wines and between 14 and 16 degrees C for red wines, with the exception of Pinot Noir which should be served at the same temperature as white wine.

2) Store and keep your wines in suitable conditions, protect them from exposure to direct light and sunlight, store them in an environment with controlled humidity away from heat, and store them at temperatures no higher than 16 degrees C.

Finally, the second most important tip I can give to fellow wine enthusiasts is to SHARE. Share your wines with friends and family, enjoy the moment that is built around a bottle of good wine, and enjoy the experience. You can also indulge in a good wine alone, there are great moments there as well, but the best and most advisable tip is to share your wine moments with others. This is also a great way to share your wine knowledge and continue learning.

There is much to discover in the wonderful world of wine that with practice and passion you can become a wine expert. What other tips do you have?

Stay safe and don’t forget to enjoy your favorite wines, Cheers!
