How-To: Cleanse Your Palate During a Wine Tasting

To truly compare wines in a tasting, it's important to remove the lingering flavors from the last taste. There are a handful of tricks to letting your tongue rest between tastes of wine:
  • In a tasting of a wide range of wines, try to move from lightest to heaviest.
  • Rest. Taking breaks between sips will allow your taste buds to recover a bit more.
  • Rinse your mouth with water between wines.
  • Nibble crackers, preferably unsalted.
