ensure you have a great experience.
I think the last line of number 3 is important “Have Fun”!
2. Focus on small producers rather than big, commercial wineries. With smaller wineries, you’ll get a more intimate experience. Make sure to call ahead (or have your tour guide do so) to make sure the winemakers are expecting you. Chateau Julien has a couple tours each day for only $7 or free with your wine tasting. As the only fully operating winery, you should definitely check out our vine to wine experience!
3. Hire a driver or have a designated one. You don’t have to overdo it, but if you’re making a day of it, you’ll want to sit down to a nice lunch and learn about pairing foods with the wines you’re drinking. It just makes for a more relaxed and educational experience. Most importantly? Enjoy the culture, and have fun.
Don’t forget Chateau Julien is accessible on the Grape Vine Express! Walk or taxi to the nearest bus stop and head on down to our tasting room. http://www.mst.org/wp-content/media/24.pdf
I'd love to hear from you about what you think is important to remember when wine tasting?
