 Ms. Jasmine Capule ( product manager)

Ms. Jasmine had a short talk on basic wine types and is the sensory examination and evaluation of wine . While the practice of wine tasting is as ancient as its production, a more formalized methodology has slowly become established from the 14th century onwards. Modern, professional wine tasters  ( sommeliers for buyers )  use a constantly evolving specialized terminology which is used to describe the range of perceived flavors, aromas and general characteristics of a wine.
