Wine tasting is very ancient and considered as art just like the preparation of wine. The wine tasters are professionals who taste the wine and check the quality of the wine. These professional wine tasters check the quality of the wine by tasting the wine or by smelling the wine and also by seeing the look of the wine. Wine is an important part of our food. There are about four stages in wine tasting; the first one is the appearance of the wine in the glass, then the second one is the aroma of the wine, thirdly the sensation of the wine in the mouth and finally the aftertaste of the wine. The properties which get checked in a wine by the wine taster are complexity, character, suitability for drinking, the potential of the wine and what are all the possible faults.
