The fine art of wine tasting

Posted by Keller & George at 8:00:00 AM in Waterford (1)

Wine has been a core element of man’s culture since ancient times, while the practice of wine tasting had been a formal form of art since the 14th century. Virtuoso wine connoisseurs are considered a rare breed, and their expert knowledge serves a big deal in matters on wine tasting. The very practice of wine tasting is considered as a multi-sensory episode, involving core elements such as the wine’s appearance, aftertaste, aroma in the glass, and sense in the mouth. Even the element of sound, from the opening of the bottle and when it is poured to a glass, is an important consideration. It’s no wonder that wine aficionados demand only the first-rate wine glasses that can adequately complement and even enhance the finest wines, just like the Elegance collection by Waterford, where each piece is especially designed to properly capture the profound flavor of the best wines, be it a  Sauvignon Blanc, Merlot or Shiraz.
Waterford is available at Keller & George on Millmont St., Charlottesville.
