Best Places for Wine Tasting

A new year is always about hope. We make resolutions because we want ourselves and our experiences to be a better version of what they’ve been so far. If you’ve never been to a wine tasting, you might not realize how doing so could elevate your everyday perceptions.

Good wines have a plethora of flavors and aromas you might have been missing out on. Wine tastings make you aware of things like balance and structure, and make you more knowledgeable about wine in general.

There’s a difference between drinking wine and savoring it. A wine tasting walks you through the process of experiencing wine with all of your five senses. Once you’ve learned to observe the shades of different varieties, feel varying textures and densities, appreciate a variety of bouquets, listen to the recommendations of wine aficionados and taste a range of flavors, you’ll approach wine differently.

Wine tastings also help when it comes to pairing wine with food. The two are meant to complement each other and when they do, your experience is enhanced. Here are a few of our favorite choices for wine tasting near Tyler TX. M6 Winery


M6 Winery is all about experiencing the finer things in life. Visit their Bullard TX tasting room and gift shop between noon and 8:00 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays in January to sample Texas grown and produced wine. Saturday, January 16, 23 and 30 they also offer live music.

Another way to experience wine tasting that’s relatively new to the area isn’t at a vineyard, it’s at one of the wine tasting events presented by Kilgore resident Britt Davis. The East Texas wine connoisseur holds themed tastings and wine education events regularly, and each event offers small groups and diverse pairings. January opportunities include experiences like “Chocolate Cheese and Bubbles” and “World Wide Wine Chaos.”
