How to Prepare for a Day of Wine Tasting – Boutique Vans
Wine tours start early, meaning you start tapping into the wines early. To ensure you’re in your finest form, it’s absolutely vital to eat a good brekky before heading off on your big day. In the lead up to the wine tour, it’s good to do a bit of research on the wineries you’re visiting. Make sure you bring a dress coat or jacket if the weather is on the nippier side.
How to Prepare for a Day of Wine Tasting
Getting ready for a day on the wines? You should be absolutely pumped! We’re lucky to live in Victoria, where we’ve got some of the best wine regions in the country at our very doorstep. Wine tastings are an Aussie ritual: we dress smart, hop on a bus with our friends and family and venture out to taste amazing wines. That being said, we need to do a little prep work first. Here’s how to prepare for a day of wine tasting, brought to you by the wine tour experts at Boutique Vans.
Have a good breakfast
Wine tours start early, meaning you start tapping into the wines early too. To ensure you’re in your finest form, it’s absolutely vital to eat a good brekky before heading off on your big day. Go for oats, Weetbix, bacon and eggs: anything that fills you up and gives you the protein and fibre you need. Fatiguing early is not ideal when you’re supposed to be having the time of your life!
Do your research
In the lead up to the wine tour, it’s good to do a bit of research on the wineries you’re visiting. Do they supply games like bocce and Finska to play? Do they have vegan options? Do they supply picnic rugs? All these questions are great to ask before heading off so that you’re fully prepared and can bring what you need.
Dress for the weather
Looking your best is important on a wine tour – but that doesn’t mean you have to freeze to death if the weather is looking a little chillier than expected. Make sure you bring a dress coat or jacket if the weather is on the nippier side. In summer, apply sunscreen or UV-protected foundation before jumping on the bus. Oh, and bring your hat and sunnies!
Great ready for some great photo ops
Wine tours in Victoria are a photographer’s dream. We visit some of the most scenic places in the country like the Macedon Ranges and the Yarra Valley, so there are lots of places for you to take happy snaps with friends and family. Ask your tour guide where the best places to take photos are – they’ll be happy to help you out.
Stay off the chewing gum!
Chewing gum ruins your palate in between wines, rendering your tongue useless for wine tasting. If you need something to chew on, go for a grazing platter.
