Alberto Yu, one of the judges at the Korea Wine and Spirits Awards this year gave some important tips. The first tip he gave was to never trust salespeople as they are likely to suggest brands which they directly distribute.

Instead, consumers should put in mind the food which the people should pair the wine. Consumers need to ask recommendations from experts on the variety of the grape and not from the wine itself or the seller.

Yu also added that people need to purchase at least three wines of the same grape variety but from three different places. With this, people will be able to know the difference.

Experts also added that a great wine has the ability to show its color slowly that's why it is recommended for consumers to take it slowly when drinking wine. According to him, the wine should be consumed for at least two hours with the meal because the wine will taste differently every 30 minutes.
