Why Taste?
 
         Savour Saturday Wine Tastings 
        A Learning Experience by the glass    
 
The more you taste, the more you refine your
understanding and enjoyment of wine.  
   
By comparing different wines with us each Saturday, over time, you fine-tune your palate to identify and appreciate what each wine uniquely offers by applying your senses to wines' essential qualities.
  
Your Senses, The Bridge To Wine's DNA
See, Swirl, Smell, Sip and Savour

See 
Observe the wines color, hue, age (by inspecting the rim color variation), and viscosity (by studying the "legs," 
as the wine drips down the inside of the glass).
Swirl 
Release the wine's vapor and aromas (by swirling to create the "legs.")
Smell
 Inhale deeply.  As much as 90% of the taste is olfactory. The first whiff of a wine gives you the most important impression . . . in anticipation of what is to come.
Sip 
 
 
Experience the wine's
taste structure.  Flavors are sweet, salty, sour, acidic and/or beefy (the 5th taste, "Umami").
Savour 
Enjoy each swallow.  Good wines have three things in common: balance, complexity, and length. How does the one you are tasting measure up?
 
*We use Riedel glassware exclusively for Savour wine tastings

A word about Pathways . . .

As many of you know, we provide an opportunity at our Saturday tastings to support Pathways  with a voluntary donation.  (Of course, you can donate any time - just drop a few dollars in the glass bowl).  Now, however, we are doing a "Match the Month" program whereby you can volunteer to match whatever we collect in a month, or any amount of your own choosing.  That means that every dollar you drop in the glass bowl will count for double.  We already have a full year of "matches," but if  there is a month you would like to contribute, please let me know - we may even triple our donations on some months!  Pathways just started its fiscal year July 1 and we have already collected what we normally would collect in 6 months! (Over $2000 in one month!)  Your contribution makes a big difference, providing education and services for our local children, giving them a better start in life and a brighter future.  So whether you contribute at Savour or decide to "Match a Month," we want to say Thank you!
