food & wine pairing

Hi Keith,

I just started a part=time job at a winery, in their tasting bar. They offer private group tastings with food pairings. I have received conflicting instructions regarding the order of tasting. Should it be “taste, sample, taste” or “sample, taste, sample” (“Sample” being the food tasting)? Are we looking for how the food taste can be affected by the wine, or vice versa?

Thanks so much for your help!

Hi Karen,

The proper order is sip the wine, taste the food, then sip the wine again if the goal is to show how the wine changes with food. If you taste the food first – especially something like cheese – then your palate will not be fresh when you sip the wine.

I hope this helps! Please let me know if you have any other questions.

Cheers
