Wine is complicated

December 11, 2009 Leave a comment

When I started learning about wine, I wasn’t sure what I was getting into. I knew it was something that not a lot of people feel comfortable with, and I wasn’t comfortable with it myself. I made a conscious decision to demystify it for myself, so I could stop worrying about not knowing anything about it.

I’m by no means an expert, but I now have the tools I need to learn about wine, and I feel comfortable making my way around a wine list and a wine store. Ultimately, that took around 2 years and a little formal wine education. Most people could stop there (or even without the formal education), but I do not intend to. I really enjoy tasting and sharing wine with friends and family, and it’s become a lifelong passion that I am looking forward to nurturing.

I intend this blog to behave as a guidepost to people who believe they can’t learn. My hope is to keep posts brief, and either share a tidbit about wine that I find useful when making decisions, or point to a resource that can be used to help learn. Happy tasting!
