What it takes to make an impression

Masters of their field make a good impression. This is also true for drinking wine. We tell you what to look out for so you can dazzle your friends as a wine expert.

There’s not much you can do wrong when it comes to drinking wine – right? Follow our five tips and show your peers what a wine expert you are.

  • Grasp by the stem to sip in style. This way, the bowl is spared from unsightly fingerprints and the wine isn’t warmed up by your hands.
  • Less is more: filling the glass too much can make you seem greedy. Only fill it up to the widest point of the glass. This is the best way to let the aromas unfold.
  • When pouring, don’t hold the bottle by the neck. Instead, grasp it at the base. And if you’ve got nothing to hide, hold it with the label facing upwards so it is visible to the person opposite you.
