We are talking about the optimal conditions to wine taste and here are two:
A Well-Lit Area
It is fundamental to be in a well-lit area when you are approaching wine tasting. This may not seem like it has anything to do with tasting, but the visual component has plenty to do with wine. The best light to best see the color components of wine is natural light. You simply cannot properly discern a wine’s color characteristics under neon lights.
A Well-Ventilated Area
If you are serious about wine tasting, steer clear of smoky areas and rooms with air fresheners. External smells are the death of wine tasting! Your nose needs a clean and natural environment so that your wine is forefront in the experience.
Now start with the wine!
