When you go to a wine tasting, you want to try the various complex flavors of each individual wine (or beer). If you taste one wine right after another, the flavors will mix and you won’t be able to appreciate the true nature of the second or third selection. This is why cleansing your palate between sips of wine is essential to making the most of your wine tasting experience. It isn’t difficult to cleanse your palate, but it may be difficult to take the time between sips as you will surely be eager to move on to the next wine. Remember, savor the flavor and enjoy each moment to get the most out of your wine tasting experience.
