The Art of Wine Tastings

So long are the days that only established wine drinkers, producers, connoisseurs and distributors get to indulge their senses to the most intriguing aromas and spices that make up the most beloved wines of the world.  At Backpack Wine, we appreciate the tastes of delicious wines, but believe that everyone should be able to enjoy in the fruit of its looms.  All the goodness, none of the snobbery.  Wine tastings are no different.  Tastings are meant to be a learning experience, discovering what elements you like about one wine from the next.  So, we’ve devised a little guide on how to reach optimal enjoyment at your next tasting.

Wine Tastings

Wine tastings are designed to be an experiment.  Take away all the drama that people typically associate with such occasions, let down your hair and relax.  Bring your friends, swap notes, crack open another can of wine in the process, and let the discussions commence.  Learning more about wine is all about enjoying more of what makes you happy.

Join us this Saturday, December 4th, at various Binny’s Locations throughout the Chicagoland area for a Backpack Wine wine tasting extravaganza and share with us what our Cheeky Rose and Snappy White taste like for you!
