Refrain from using heavy, lotions and perfumes as their odor could interfere with the wonderful bouquet of the wine.

Napa Valley vacationers are encouraged by Tour Vin to take a few simple steps to ensure a great wine tasting experience. Tour Vin guides guests to a variety of Napa Valley wineries based on their clients preferences and personal company experience.

Before leaving for the winery tour, guests are encouraged to eat a full breakfast. A full stomach will counteract the effect of all-day wine sipping and prevent attendees from getting an early buzz that fogs the rest of the tour. Tour Vin also encourages guests to drink plenty of water between tastings to avoid dehydration. In addition, wine tasters should refrain from using heavy, lotions and perfumes as their odor could interfere with the wonderful bouquet of the wine.

Visitors are encouraged to dress for the day in comfortable shoes and relaxed clothing. A jacket or sweater should also be available for the cool air experienced in cave’s and vineyard tours. All wines purchased during the trip should be stored in a cooler or shipped back to the hotel, as wine sitting in the heat of the car could spoil the wine.

While experiencing the tasting, Tour Vin asks visitors to keep off cell phones for the benefit of all guests. Guests may spit or dump wine into buckets in the tasting room-it is not necessary that all wine poured must be drunk. Questions about the wine are welcome by the staff at the wineries and Tour Vin encourages guests to participate in conversation about the vineyard growing, presses and production process. Taking notes is highly encouraged for recording specific wine nuances.

Tour Vin is a Napa Valley Concierge company that provides hotel accommodations, winery tours, fine dining, wine tasting tours and other unique activities for guests looking for a unique wine tasting Napa Valley vacation.
