Swirl (wine)

The purpose of swirling wine in a glass is to oxygenate the wine. When oxygen is introduced to a wine it releases the chemical components that produce those aromas we search for and is thought to smooth the taste of the wine.

Fill the glass no more than 1/3 full. While firmly holding the stem of the wine glass, gently swirl the wine in the bowl for 10-20 seconds. The glass should be held parallel to the ground and use only your wrist to make subtle, circular motions.

Tip: If you find yourself spilling the wine as you swirl, place your wine glass on a table and swirl the wine using the table as a base. Give the wine a few good circular motions, allowing oxygen to penetrate the wine.
