All this “food is joy” talk got me feeling a little thirsty. For wine.
I am a licensed, bonded and insured wine fan. Don’t you like how I make up these credentials? Makes me sound good.
I like the stuff enough that I’ve taken several wine tasting classes, toured a winery or sixteen and planned entire meals around a single bottle. I’ve also done my research, picking up a wine magazine from time to time and talking to sommeliers in the nicer restaurants I frequent. And after all this tasting and training and expert advice, I’ve established my own criteria for purchasing a bottle of wine.
Today, I’m sharing this carefully developed wine-buying process so all you rookies can feel like true wine connoisseurs.
Oh, I’m just kidding! Sort of. Okay, I’m not. Here’s the real lesson from those wine tasting classes: if you like it, it’s good. Don’t let anyone tell you that your taste in wine is bad or wrong – just enjoy it!
