Wine Tasting @ Foley Estates Winery

We had our wine tasting at Foley estate vineyard and winery in Santa Ynez Valley and paid $10 for 5-6 glasses of wines, that include chardonnay(2-3),a dry rose and Pinot noir (2).

Wine is said to be an acquired taste - The more you taste and understand the more you'll get to appreciate it. Well, I can't seem to understand its subtle complexities just yet, but I overheard from those other group of wine drinker that Foley's pinot noir was the best.

I think Wine tasting procedure is almost the same as coffee tasting procedure.
1.) Tilt from side to side- This so you can see its appearance.
2.) Sniff/Smell - to evaluating the aroma
3.) Sip - Gently roll around inside your mouth
4.) Spit/Enjoy

I might not appreciate alcoholic drink that much, wine on this instance but Foley surely has a modern and spacious tasting room and a beautiful vineyard scenery.

That's All!

i love wine although ang epkto nyan ay nakakahilo but nevertheless sarap kasi yan in combination with fish or meat meals. fun shots aline.

I drink selected wine lang. Para ngang same yung procedure nya sa coffee tasting (I had the formal one while dining in Starbucks).

I remember doing the same thing in Napa Valley in 2002. But here in Pinas, since wine is more expensive, we settle for beer na lang and peanuts for pulutan. Hehe.
