Wine Tip of the Week

The Wine Aroma Wheel is a visual representation of the most common wine aromas.

This wheel is a great companion during wine tasting. Whether you are a beginner or a wine connoisseur, the Wine Aroma Wheel will assist you in the identification process of aromas contained in the complexity of your wine.

In a typical wine tasting process, you will first need to define which aroma families are present in your wine (fruits, flowers, vegetal…). Then, the Wine Aroma Wheel will help you narrow down the aroma family to a more precise aroma subfamily (citrus, red berries, dry herbs, nuts…) to finally the exact aroma itself. You simply need to start from the first inner ring of the wine aroma wheel and move towards its largest ring, which suggests many aromas that can describe the taste of your wine.
