Sample wines purchased from Tasting Room are highly reliable for their true flavor; through technology they are capable of using a 750ml bottles to make six 50ml samples. These samples are made with a unique bottling system to prevent the wine from being exposed to oxygen, causing oxidation and evaporation.
In addition to the high quality sample bottles, Tasting Room is also known for their wine personalization techniques. With the initial sample kit, a packet of instructions are included. It is important to read through the information because it explains how to rate the wine and defines the properties for each wine sample.
Upon submitting your wine sample ratings, the algorithm programmed into their WinePrint technology is used to decipher what kind of wine drinker you are. Whether you are rating samples, wines by the glass or bottles, updating your Wine Profile is pertinent to a successful experience on TastingRoom.com. As you receive cases of wine throughout the year, each one will be curated even more precisely, than the one before, to your taste palate.
Reviews online, submitted by Tasting Room customers, were favorable. Ordering samples of wine before you buy them is one of the most attractive attributes to this site. Additionally, if you don’t like the case of wine they send, you can return or exchange it. This is a rare practice, as wine is typically not a returnable item.
Another positive aspect is that their wine selection changes seasonally, so there are always new wines by the glass to try. Not only do customers order the sample size bottles for themselves but they even order them for parties, gifts and casual get-togethers. This way all of their guests have a variety of options to choose from and less wine goes to waste if the bottle had not been finished.
The price may be worth it if you are interested in exploring and learning about different types of wines and want to have fun while doing so.
