Are you one of those people who finds difficulty in pinpointing flavors in wine, beer, or even cheese? Good news: The Kitchn has five 1-minute projects to improve your wine tasting abilities (you know, if you wanted to). You’ll learn how to recognize acidity and tannins by adding a few extra ingredients to your glass, as well as enjoying certain foods with the wine. Sipping wine and eating salami? Sounds like a good Friday night project to us.
Wine isn’t cheap. In fact, of all the beverages you could choose, it’s often the most expensive. So why not spend five minutes to learn a bit about that liquid in your glass?
Here are five 1-minute projects that will teach you quite a lot about how wine tastes and responds to food. Do them one at a time, or all at once, with friends!
