The Baltics boasts excellent grape growing conditions so why not get a taste for it with a Riga Wine Tasting session on your hen weekend in Latvia? Head over to one of the city's best restaurants or wine lounges, where an experienced sommelier will unravel the mysteries of wine lingo, ordering and pairing wine with a meal, storage and serving.
By the end of this experience, you'll be able to choose a bottle off a wine list like a bona fide buff!
Riga might be famous for her beer gardens, but wine is becoming more and more popular in the city and Latvia as a whole. Made from grapes, berries and fruit, Latvian wine is literally bursting with flavour. Don't be surprised if you get hints of gooseberries, raspberries, apple and red currant during your wine tasting session.
There's a precise technique to wine tasting. Your private sommelier will teach you how to hold a glass (by the stem to avoid warming), swirl the glass to unleash the aromas, inhale and release the flavours in your mouth. If you don't get it right you won't reveal the wine's full potential - and that would just be pure criminal!
Raise a glass to the bride!
