How to taste wine


Published on

This is the presentation I made for BarCamp Ljubljana. Slides are missing a lot of important information (due to short timeslot). This is just a really brief introduction into taste, how wine is made and what to look when tasting wine. Sparkling wine attributes are missing in Appearance.
