Large-scale wine-tasting events are great for learning about new regions, meeting winemakers and, of course, tasting dozens of wines all in once place. But with great opportunity comes great responsibility; if you want to get the most out of an experience like this, you're going to need a plan.
If you're new to wine, or just not sure which tasting strategy works for you, you might want to ask yourself why you're attending the event in the first place. Do you want to make new discoveries? Are you scouting out wines you might want to add to your cellar? Or maybe you're just there to have fun and taste delicious wines! Your motivation may help inform how you want to work the room.
Do you have a go-to game plan for tasting events, or is there one that you think makes the most sense? Share your thoughts below!
