If you’ve neverbeen wine tasting before, there are a few matters of etiquette that apply at most tasting rooms around the world. Familiarizing yourself with this etiquette will help you feel more comfortable.
Get Your Taste Buds Ready
It is important not to smoke, use mouthwash or toothpaste, chew gum or mints right before and during the wine tasting. This can effect your taste buds and diminish your ability to fully enjoy the real flavor of the wine.
The Beauty Of Wine Tasting
The purpose of tasting different wines is to find out what you like before buying it. It’s that simple. The more wines you taste over time the more educated your palate and senses will become. It’s pretty normal to like sweet wines when you are new to tasting and move into the dryer wines as your palate becomes more discriminating.
Using Any Heavy Scent
Because smell is such an important aspect of wine tasting, courteous tasters try not to interfere with other tasters’ ability to smell. This means scents such as perfumes or after-shave lotions are undesirable. These foreign odors can definitely interfere with your fellow tasters’ ability to detect the wine’s aroma.
Spit Or Swallow
Swallowing the wine you’re tasting is perfectly acceptable and most people do. If you intend to swallow consider using a designated driver. You may want to include one of our cheese plates with your tasting as alcohol is absorbed more slowly on a full stomach.That said, swallowing every wine you taste isn’t really necessary in order to taste the wine fully. Just swishing or holding it in your mouth for 10 seconds or so should be sufficient for tasting all the flavors. Spittoons are located around the tasting bar for this purpose and you won’t have to worry about the effects of the alcohol and driving.
Javelina Leap Vineyard & Winery processes approximately 40 to 60 tons of Arizona grown grapes equaling about 2500 to 3000 cases of fine Javelina Leap Arizona wine, with a 100 barrel capacity cellar. When you visit Javelina Leap you will be sampling Arizona wines at a fully functional vineyard and winery.
During the harvest season ( August to October ) you can watch Arizona wine being made and tours are available upon request. All our wines are made on site! Arizona grapes are picked, de-stemmed, fermented, pressed, aged, bottled and labeled here on the property.
Javelina Leap staff is fun, knowledgeable and also familiar with Sedona, Page Springs and the Verde Valley. Regardless of your own level of experience, we’re happy to answer your questions about everything from wine and restaurants to local attractions and outdoor activities.
Wine is fun! So drop by and have some.
