Some wine tasting tips:
It is recommended to drink water during wine tastings to stay hydrated in the higher altitude and drier inland climate.
Most tastings provide an (optional) spitting vase, so don’t feel compelled to drink all the wine in your glass, especially if it’s not to your taste.
Restrained use of personal perfumes makes it easier for all participants to learn from and enjoy the unique aromas for each wine type.
