Horizontal and vertical wine tasting


Uvamatris wants to remember you the meaning of the word “tasting” i.e. to analyze carefully every wine feature in order to value its qualities. Wine quality depends on:

  • grape type
  • soil where the grapes are cultivated
  • type of climate during its maturation
  • processing in the cellar
  • wine age

The tasting can be done in two ways: horizontally or vertically.

In a horizontal tasting, wines are all from the same vintage but from different wineries. Vineyard and climate are the same but the only thing that changes is the processing in the cellar, and this could make a difference between a good wine to a bad one.

In a vertical tasting, different vintages of the same wine type from the same winery are tasted. Grape type, vineyard and processing are from the same winery but the climate change, giving more or less good grapes. The same wine made in different vintages has a different taste!
