Does your perfect evening mean the one where you listen to soothing instrumental music playing in the background as you sip a glass of wine and stare at the nightlights? Well, we can echo your sentiments and understand how there’s nothing in this world that’s more precious than an old bottle of wine and the right company!
There are over 200 types of wines available worldwide, and each one of them has a different texture, flavour, and smell that you should look for while tasting wine. However, it might not be possible for you to get your hands on all of them without burning a hole in your pocket. So, here’s where and how you could get different types of wine.
Get A Subscription
The internet revolution has made it possible for people to get anything and everything from the comfort of their homes. And wine stands no exception to this too. Yes, you could get yourself a delivery from the best wine clubs, and you would receive different wine types every month for the duration of your subscription. You could customize your order to suit your palate preference and get a mix of white and red wines delivered to your doorstep every month! You could also land yourself a great deal because you are subscribing for the long term.
Join a Peer Group
There are many clubs and peer groups that you could join. These groups and clubs have other seasoned wine connoisseurs who would help you develop a deeper appreciation of the wine and its aging potential. Most of these groups have a strong online and offline presence, and you could meet and interact with your peers both in real life and in the virtual world.
You could share information on the recent wine types you have tried and how you procured them while you hear wines to try your peers’ suggestions. Besides opening up newer avenues for different kinds of wines, it would also enhance your social circle as you would get to meet, interact, and network with other like-minded individuals from across the globe.
Attend a Wine Conference and Festivals
Oktoberfest might be the place to be for all the beer enthusiasts, and if you thought that the connoisseurs of wine do not have similar events, you are mistaken. The Swiss Wine Festival is a great place to be if you wish to experience the best of nature and wine in one place. The Fête des Vignerons or Festival of Winegrowers is one such event that takes place in Switzerland.
You could sing, dance, relax in nature’s lap, sip some wine, and have the time of your life with 20,000 other connoisseurs. Besides that, there are numerous other wine conventions and events that happen around the year worldwide. And with the pandemic outbreak, numerous of these events have moved online, with industry experts shifting the talks online, and they would share their wine knowledge virtually!
Learning about the different kinds of wine, where to procure it from, and how to savour it from a virtual event seems interesting. However, it could never match the magic of in-person interaction and bonding as you smell, sip, and savour the wine as you discuss the tannins and texture in every glass. But until the world gets back to what it was in the pre-Covid-19 era, this is how we will have to live it. Until then, sign up for a subscription, join the groups, and see what your peers suggest for you to try as a next drink. Happy Tasting!
