No matter which wineries you decide to visit, there are a few things you should keep in mind to make the most of your wine-tasting experience. Here are a few tips:

  •  Spit or Swirl: When you’re tasting wine, it’s important to remember that you don’t have to finish every glass. Most wineries will provide a spit bucket for you to use if you want to avoid getting too buzzed. And, if you do decide to drink the whole glass, be sure to swirl it around in your mouth before swallowing to fully experience the flavor.
  •  Slow Down: Wine tastings can be a lot of fun, but it’s important to take your time and savor each wine. If you’re rushing through a tasting, you’re not going to enjoy it as much as if you take your time and really pay attention to each wine.
  •  Ask Questions: Don’t be afraid to ask questions at a wine tasting. The staff is there to help you, and they’re usually happy to chat about the wines and answer any questions you have.

By following these tips, you’re sure to have a great time wine tasting in Santa Ynez.
