Term (also flight, swarm, passage, series, partial tasting) for a round at a professional tasting (wine tasting). A group of wines that have a certain relationship to each other is served and tasted together. For example, these can be different wines from a certain growing region and/or grape variety and/or vintage and/or price range and/or wine type. Depending on the objective, however, any conceivable grouping is of course possible. The wine glasses are placed next to each other so that a quick comparison can be made with the possibility of repetition (tasting several times). As a rule, at least three wines are compared.

There is a vast number of sources on the web where one can acquire knowledge about wine. But none has the scope, timeliness and accuracy of the information in the encyclopaedia at wein.plus. I use it regularly and rely on it.
