As a wine drinker, you can learn as much or as little as you like, and there is nothing wrong either. It all comes down to what you want to get out of wine. For some of us, wine is a cultural culinary experience. For others, wine is something they drink, because they like it. One is not better than the other, and there exists a whole multitude of personalities and purposes in between. Whether you want to learn about where your favorite wines come from, or perhaps you want to explore new varietals and styles of wine, we are here to help.
We have a glossary of our own with helpful terms and names. Check back regularly, as the Wine Glossary will be continually updated.
