Steps to prepare before drinking

Step 4: Pour the wine

Pouring wine is also an art, to pour wine without being poured, you should hold the bottle at the bottom of the bottle, when pouring the bottle's mouth without contact with the glass.

Enjoy wine:

God has given us all our keen senses to be able to distinguish between good wine and bad wine. And you don't need to graduate at the wine department of the University of California at Davis or the École des Vins de Bordeaux to enjoy or express your opinion about wine. You just need to use your senses to address the following main criteria:

- Visual - use "eyes" to judge the color of the wine, by shaking the glass in a circular direction, you can check the color and consistency of the wine you are drinking. When gently shaking the glass, only hold the glass at the foot to avoid the temperature from the hand to change the taste of the wine.

- Smell - use "nose to smell" to analyze the aroma, strength and personality of alcohol. Typically, the aroma of wine has two parts, the first aroma is typical of grape varieties, the final aroma is characteristic of the chemical reactions characterized by the type of yeast and the age of wine. Feel the scent of wine will help you enjoy wine more fully. Note that you should let wine "breathe" about 15-30 minutes for SO2 gas to escape.

- Taste - use the "tasting mouth" to feel the richness of the wine, sweetness, acidity and acridness, aftertaste remaining in the neck after swallowing. Sipping is the most complete way to drink wine. Avoid swallowing saliva or gulping down the alcohol without feeling the taste. A discerning wine drinker is someone who perceives the texture, weight and structure of the wine when drinking.

To feel the taste of a glass of wine, people also need to have enough time to enjoy. This is hardly any drink can do. Former US President Benjamin Franklin also praised: "Wine makes our everyday life easier, less rushed, less stressed and tolerant, more gentle."
