I don't consider myself a wine connoisseur, but I do love learning more about wine by tasting new varietals! To really make the most of wine tasting, we've created a
downloadable worksheet. It's your space to make notes on all of the wonderful wines you taste. The tasting notes are perfect for a wine club meeting, a wine tasting, or simply a night in with the girls. Filling it out can help you learn more about wine in general, and it will also help you remember certain beloved bottles. To check out a list of wine-related vocabulary and to download our free, printable tasting-notes worksheet, read more.
To help fill out the sheet, here's a list of wine-tasting vocabulary:
Name of the wine: The name as it appears on the bottle. If you are performing a blind tasting simply label it Wine A or Wine #1.
Vintage: The year that grapes used to make the wine were harvested.
Variety: The type of grapes that were used to make the wine.
Price Range: How much the wine costs.
Aroma: The smell of the wine. The fragrance of the wine that is affected by the fermentation or aging process used to make the wine.
Body: The texture or weight of the wine in the mouth.
Taste: The flavors of the wine and how it tastes.
Finish: The final impression that remains in your mouth after you have swallowed the wine.
Have fun and happy tasting!
