We understand that you may not be a wine connoisseur, and not necessarily be used to wine tastings. Signing up for a wine tour can be intimidating—you’ll find yourself wondering whether the tour guide will use technical wine vocabulary, and if there are others in your group who understand it. However, these perceived limitations mustn’t stop you from taking that wine tour; even if you’re not a master in wine flavors, you can still enjoy them as you learn new things.
In the United States, it was found that in 2016 alone, 949 million gallons of wine were consumed. It also has several health benefits. It was found that drinking moderate amounts of red wine can lower chances of developing cardiometabolic problems in people with diabetes.
Planning to gift your significant other a wine tour? Here’s how this can be the perfect gift:
You’ll learn more about wines as you sip on new ones
And you’ll do it with your better half. On a wine tour, you won’t essentially be sticking to the wines you already know. You’ll be at a winery and will have the chance to try out new, exotic flavors and varietals. You and your partner will try amazing regional varieties you didn’t even know existed prior to the tour. If your choice of drink is red wine, try the white. If you prefer the sweeter kind, why not taste the drier ones? A wine tour will leave your partner going home without any regrets.
You’ll have your homework done for you in advance
Choosing a winery to go to isn’t always a piece of cake, as the varieties of options out there can make you indecisive. The main benefit of a decent wine tasting tour is that someone has already done the homework for you, and has tried and tested every location beforehand to offer you the best wine tasting experience. This will give your partner the chance to enjoy and unwind as they sip on wine, instead of being worried about where to go next or what the best wines are to try.
Moreover, they’ll also learn a thing or two from experienced wine connoisseurs. You’re also guaranteed a sense of camaraderie as you enjoy the buzz of other wine travellers with you! A wine tour saves you from ending up in a wine tasting room with an unenthusiastic employee and no one to talk to.
