Essential Wine Tasting Guide


How often have you been at a winery tasting room nosing a glass of wine, and you think 'I know what that aroma is' but you just can't put a name to it, even though it's on the tip of your tongue... literally. Then you start to think about all those wine books that you have sitting back at home, and how you don't have these with you when you need them the most.

What you need is something that is light, portable, discreet, and compact enough to fit into your pocket, purse, or wallet. Something that provides you with essential bite sized chunks of information about wine tasting and acts as a quick reference guide, or a useful prompt.


The Essential Wine Tasting GuideĀ®, developed as a result of experiences such as this, is the culmination of ten years of wine tasting notes and extensive research of major grape varieties and wine styles within the classic wine growing regions of the world.


Slip it out, open it up, and it unfolds to reveal 34 mini-pages of compact wine tasting information to help guide you in the analytical tasting of wine.


Features include:


  • Sparkling, white, red, dessert, and fortified wines including Brandy, Madeira, Tokaji, and Sherry
  • Major and emerging international wine grape varieties & wine styles
  • Over 1 000 tactile and varietal wine aroma descriptors
  • Wine descriptor groups
  • Wine colour comparison guide
  • Faults in wine
  • Scoring wine
  • Temperature serving guide
  • Neutral white background for wine colour assessment

All this, and it's only the size of a credit card! You will quickly realise, along with many international wine professionals, that the Essential Wine Tasting GuideĀ® is an extremely useful wine tool, that is... well, essential!
