Recommended palate cleanser for wine tasting

goodeatsgal | Apr 16, 201305:33 PM

We're hosting a wine tasting party this weekend ("guess the varietal" theme). There will be 15 of us and we'll taste about 7 or 8 wines (mostly reds but maybe 1-2 whites). What's the best way to cleanse our palates between wines? From my web searches, it seems that plain water and plain bread or crackers are traditional. But for me, those don't completely clean out the taste of the previous wine (especially bread). Are there other cleansers you've tried? What about cucumber water, or sparkling water, or celery, or .....?

Thanks in advance for your opinion!
