Here are a few hints to help you get the most out of your tasting room experience:

1. As soon as you enter, head for the tasting bar where you will be greeted and receive information about the winery and the wines available for tasting.
2. Most wineries will be very aware of the amount of wine they are pouring and will give you enough to savor the flavors but not so much that you won’t be able to enjoy the rest of your day. Tasting pours are usually 1 to 1 ½ ounces.
3. Designated drivers are always recommended for serious wine tasting ventures.
