Manzanilla / Serving Tips
Choose the right wine glass
Manzanilla is a white wine so white wine stemware will always be right for serving Manzanilla. Make sure the glass is thin and can be held by the stem so as not to warm the wine.
The well-known catavino is often used in bars where space is at a premium as clients stand at the bar while having tapas. However, make sure the bowl is large enough and the glass thin enough to allow the wine to express its features.
Temperature is key
How do I store Manzanilla?
Did you know?
Wine tasting is an exercise in sensorial analysis that involves using all five senses. That’s why hosting a wine tasting should lend itself to creating the ideal conditions for the analysis to be correct and helps tasters perceive all the attributes the wine has to offer in terms of colour, aroma, flavour, texture, etc.
For the purpose of tasting, you can use the classic catavino or any white wine glass, as long as the crystal is thin. We suggest you choose a well-lighted room, placing the glasses on a white surface which makes it easier to determine the wine’s organoleptic features.
It’s also important to avoid using perfume, tobacco or any other substance or place whose smell could affect the tasting perceptions.
