A quick guide to wine

wineWine has a rich history dating back thousands of years. Since its inception, wines have continuously garnered the attention and interest of people from every part of the globe.

Learning to taste wine is no different than learning to really appreciate music or art in that the pleasure you receive is proportionate to the effort you make. So here you have a grain of salt from this vast wine culture.

*When visiting Excellence Resorts, attend our wine tastings. More info with your hotel concierge upon arrival.

Different varieties of grapes and strains of yeasts produce different styles of wine. Regulations govern the classification and sale of wine in many regions of the world. European wines tend to be classified by region (e.g. BordeauxRioja and Chianti), while non-European wines are most often classified by grape.

Now, you have probably heard from both friends and experts many times that any wine you like is a good wine. This is true if simply enjoying wine is your goal. You don’t have to do more than take a sip, give it a swallow and let your inner geek decide “yes” or “no.” The end.

If you’re tasting properly, you will be able to identify the main flavor and scent components in every wine you try; you will know the basic characteristics for all of the most important varietal grapes.

We have organized basic wine properties in this chart. Have a look!

Another tip: a white that’s too cold will be flavorless and a red that’s too warm is often flabby and alcoholic. Here is a key to ideal wine service temperatures:
