Why You Need To Experience A Sommelier-Guided Wine Tasting At Least Once In Your Life

Wine tasting is a sensory experience that tantalizes your taste buds and engages your sense of smell. As the primary, secondary, and tertiary flavors dance on your tongue, the aromas of aged wine waft around you.

Wine tastings have a lot more to do than simply sniffing the wine, swirling it around in your glass, and taking a small sip. It’s an intricate art form that doesn’t just come to anyone; there are various levels of certification to perfect.

Thus, to make the most of your wine tasting tour, enlisting the expertise of a sommelier will take your experience to the next level.

At The Wine Stay, we offer our guests the opportunity to book a private wine tour with a wine connoisseur themselves. Here’s why it’s an experience everyone should have at least once:

You get to enjoy the taste of a professional

Sommeliers are wine experts. Having undergone years of training, they know everything there is to know about the craft. From knowing the best food and wine pairings to hidden gems, they know exactly how to provide an all-encompassing wine tour.

Not only will this experience introduce new tastes to you, it’ll provide you a greater appreciation of the craft.

Learn their unbiased opinion

Unlike winemakers who’re bound to lean towards their specific product, a sommelier has an unbiased appreciation for the art of wine.

This is a refreshing change as you get to learn and appreciate a variety of wines, understanding the nuances of each and what sets them apart. An objective wine tour opens the horizons for a greater, more enjoyable experience.

It’s a good way to spend time

Wine tasting tours are all about the serenity of sitting back and escaping from the hubbub of your daily life. Natural beauty and alcohol are often the recipe for an amazing week of unwinding and forgetting your woes.

Instead of sitting around, taking a wine tour will give you and your loved ones’ memories to last a lifetime.

It’s an educational experience

Traveling is a great opportunity to expand your knowledge and learn more about things you hadn’t known before. Sommelier-guided wine tastings are at the perfect intersection of enjoyment and learning.

The engaging experience allows you to learn a great deal, adding to your knowledge of major wine regions, the best techniques to drink wine, and how to train your palate like an expert.

The Wine Stay’s sommelier-guided wine tour includes a wine region information packet that’s specifically made just for you.

Our wine tours can be personally tailored according to the kind of experience you want. Your specific interests and choice of vehicles will be considered when designing the package, as well as a private picnic to end the tour perfectly.

Your sommelier will lead the tour, answer all your queries, and provide you an elevated wine tasting tour like no other.
