Tasting Etiquette
"Please respect the wine and other tasters by not wearing aftershaves and perfumes to the tasting.
It would also be appreciated if smokers could avoid smoking just prior to entering the tasting room
as the lingering smoke also affects the smell of the wines. Please could we ask that you also brief
your guests on this courtesy when you invite them." (Courtesy of the RATS website.)
No Perfumes or Aftershaves Please !
Several members have complained about strong aftershaves and perfumes that others love to wear.
I've even been told by the aforementioned that it has been put on in the car park before coming in to
the tastingroom. ItÂ’s very difficult to appreciate the delicate bouquet of a wine if it has to compete with
the robust aroma of Chanel No 5 or Hugo Boss.
