“A Wine Tourist’s Guide: Visiting Tasting Rooms”

For years we have monitored our website traffic. One article, month after month, year after year, has consistently had the most views. That article is Tasting Room Etiquette. In the spring of 2013, we decided that since that is the most viewed article over a seven year period of time, we should expand the content of the article. We became carried away. What was to be a revision turned into a book chapter. That led to other chapters. Now we have a book.

A Wine Tourist’s Guide: Visiting Tasting Rooms was sent to our publisher this week. Based on last year’s experience, it should take them three months before we see the printed books. Infinity did note that they now have a quicker turn around then they did a year ago. This book is designed for the novice wine taster as well as the road warrior who has visited hundreds of winery tasting rooms.

Chapters include:

Tasting Room Expectations
Tasting Room Etiquette
Wine Tasting
Common International Grape Varieties
Some Common Wine Myths and Misconceptions
How to Plan a Visit to a Tasting Room
Appendix: Wine Tourism Club
Glossary of Wine Terms

The paperback book is 90 pages and we are hoping for a below $10 price point, although our publisher has not given us the retail price yet. This book would be prefect for wine tour operators to give to their clients. Winery tasting rooms and cellar doors may also want copies of this book in their tasting rooms.

For those wine enthusiasts that like to visit winery tasting room, A Wine Tourist’s Guide: Visiting Tasting Rooms is a wonderful guide for expanding your experience. For the beginner, this guide will help you overcome any fears about visiting wineries and vineyards and give you an idea of what to expect.

Watch for further blog reports over the next couple months. Once we receive a retail price from the publisher, we will start taking pre-publication orders at a reduced price.
