If you are attending the Boston Wine Expo, please also check out my advice and suggestions for handling a large scale wine tasting. This past weekend, I attended the Mohegan Sun Wine Fest, another large tasting event, and much of my advice was relevant there as well, from beginning my day with a hearty breakfast to spitting plenty.
I will be attending the Boston Wine Expo and hope to see many of you there as well. And I'll even give you a little insight into some of the wines I'll be seeking out at the Expo. First, I will be sure to taste a number of Portuguese wines, and I mean more than just Port. Portugal offers some of the best wine values in the world, and their plethora of indigenous grapes can create some fascinating still wines. I highly recommend you check out the Portugal tables. Second, I always check out the South African tables, as I am a fan of Pinotage and believe some very interesting wines are coming out of that country.
