In many cultures of the world, wine is a mandatory part of every meal. No matter the culture you hail from, if you have a taste for wine, you would appreciate a good wine tasting tour. Thousands of Mclaren Vale wine tasting tours take place every day in different wineries in the USA, Europe and other parts of the world. Before you plan a wine tour, you should plan a few things.  Make sure that there is diversity in your wine tour. You should go to new and old vineyards, both. The older ones have a historical background to it while the newer ones have a better set-up and more facilities such as an eatery or a bookshop. You must have your preferences too. If you are into white wine, go for a wine tour that focuses on the wine you like. However, if you want to be spontaneous and try something new, you can sign up for any wine tour.

When to go?

Vineyards are open during all months of the year so you can go whenever you want. If you want to see the grape harvest and experience the wine-making process, visit in February or March. Summer is a busy season for wineries as they get a lot of visitors. Some people like to have more of a private experience. They can go during the winter season. Even in the summer season, if you go early in the morning, the wineries are not so busy and you will be able to have a much relaxed experience. Get suggestions from your friends or family who love wine. Or you can search on the Internet for the best wine tasting experience in the city or country that you are visiting or living in.

What to Wear?

When you are on a wine tour, you should dress up nice but casually. Do not wear heels as they will be uncomfortable for you to wear in the grass. Most wineries are located in grassy terrain, thus wear wedges to stay at ease. Try to take on a darker color so that even if you spill wine on your clothes, it does not show up too much during the rest of tasting tour. Take a sizable receptacle with you in which you can keep your phone and wallet. Do not hold anything in your hand as you will be using your them for holding the glasses and you do not want to knock down anything in a formal tasting tour. If you have been perfumed, go for a lighter scent. A stronger perfume will not let you distinguish from the aroma of wine. Instead of wearing lipstick, go for lip stain as it does not leave hue on the glasses. Be prepared and you will have a memorable experience.
