Margaret River Wine Tours Preparation: The Basics of Wine Tasting

“Are you embarking on your first of many wine tours in Margaret River? Then you’ll find this bit of trivia rather interesting: Have you ever wondered why wine glasses are only served half full?

Indeed, tasting wine involves using your taste buds as much as your sense of smell. Moreover, the partial emptiness of a wine glass makes it easier for the taster to swirl the wine for smelling.”
