There are various NY winery tours to choose from such as Royal Kendem Wine Corporation, Joseph Zakon Winery, Loukas Wines, Vintage New York and Vintage New York Broadway. If have only a limited amount of time then it is probably best to get information on all the tours and then choose the best one. If you have a lot of time on your hands then you should consider doing more than one NY winery tour.
The NY winery tours will all differ in what they offer. All of them will explain about the different wines they offer and the process that they follow when it comes to making the wines. You will be shown the rooms where all of this take place as well as the barrels in which it is matured to perfection. Depending on the winery and what their tour includes, chances are good you will be taught how to taste and appreciate wines.
Due to all wineries making different wines and specializing in different wines it will be good if you are taught or already know how to taste wine before taking the NY winery tours. This is normally done in a special room or corner where there is a big barrel or specific bucket into which you spit the wine after tasting – you don’t swallow every mouthful.
The lady or gentleman doing the presentation on the NY winery tour will explain the color, smell and taste of all the different types of wines out there. Some specific combinations make up a great wine and others a weaker one that still needs some perfecting.
It’s a very difficult process to make wine and it takes a lot of patience and care. NY winery tours will show you all the equipment and small items used by the wine makers to keep track of the wine making process. This could also be very educational to children! Good wine makers are much sought after because not everyone possesses the skill and patience to start with a grape and work it into a perfect wine.
Some of the NY winery tours will also include a lunch and during the lunch they will explain to you which wine you could serve with which foods. Certain wines compliment certain foods and the tastes go well together. If the wrong wine is served with certain dishes you might end up ruining the flavor of the food and the wine!
