Description

What is a Wine Flight?

A wine flight starts with tasting one to six wines over time in a progressive order based on varietals,  vintages or regions.

A glass or tasting portion is poured of each wine in succession over a period of time (during a party or dinner) so each wine is progressively tasted.

The aim is to accumulate an appreciation of the wines and have each wine complement each other. White wines (think Riesling or Sauvignon Blanc) are often consumer during an appetizer or starter followed by Red wines during a main course (think Pinot Noir or Shiraz).

Wine Flights are a fun and educational way to enjoy wine and inspires conversations about each wine. You may decided on a wine flight focused on vintages from  say 2010 to 2020 or Chardonnay from the Hunter Valley. Other wine flights commence with a white and move onto a red, others will progress through various white wines into heavier red wines (for example, Pinot Noir to Cabernet Sauvignont to Durifs).

Like flying around the world, there’s many different ways to reach your destination and getting their is an often the best part of the adventure.
