Learn about wine. That is the one thing I want you to do while reading Wine Press Blogger. I know how daunting wine is, especially when you don’t even know what you’re looking for to begin with. You walk into a grocery store and get lost as soon as you see the wall of wines. Your jaw slackens, your brow protrudes, you start grunting gibberish and banging your chest. But it is not difficult to learn about wine.
I will provide you with very useful wine information to help you understand the industry on every level so you can crack the da Vinci code of wine knowledge.
Honestly, there is no big secret. If you are new to wine and really want to learn about it, it’s really no different than starting anything new. You’ve just got to dive in. The only daunting aspect of wine is the multitude of brands out there to choose from. Once you start learning some wine basics, you will quickly realize how small that wall is.
If it’s a fear of encountering the wine snob who will cut you to the quick for pronouncing Merlot with a “T”, it’s an unnecessary worry. Wine information has become more accessible today with the internet than it was even five years ago and wine snobs are quickly realizing how foolish and antiquated their snobbery is because of it. And by the way, the “T” in Merlot is silent.
Yet, while there are a bazillion websites out there where you can find any info you want on any wine subject, you will only find everything you need to learn about wine at Wine Press Blogger. I’ve got you covered. I’ve been in the wine business for over sixteen years. I’ve had access to every aspect of the wine industry you can think of. If you feel you’ve been going in circles looking to expand your wine knowledge, relax. I’m here. It’s an easy fix with the right tool. And it’s knowledge that I am more than willing to pass along.
I’ve tried to make this as comprehensive for beginners as possible, thinking of how I used to feel when I first got involved with wine, with what I sought to learn and how I tripped and stumbled along the way until I had a sound knowledge myself.
Use the menu at the top of the page to navigate to the specific wine areas you are looking for. Learn about different wine varietals, there is a great food and wine pairing guide, and even a place to ask questions. Use the wine tools I have provided. Everything is free.
One thing you won’t find on Wine Press Blogger, however, is reviews. While I do consider myself an authority in the wine industry, I don’t do reviews. To know what wines are right for you, taste as many as you can. Find your palate. A good wine is one you like. My opinion shouldn’t persuade you. All I want to do is show you what wine is and let you decide.
What you do with the info is not my concern. If all you learn about wine is something as simple as the difference between Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot then I will be happy. However, the more you read, the more you will gain. Period. Like I said, wine is not a hard subject, but it is a broad subject. And that can make it daunting. The information is finite, however, as broad a reach as it has globally, the subject matter is actually quite concentrated. So there is plenty to learn.
Regardless of your goals, I hope you find what you are looking for here and I truly hope the information I have provided helps you learn about wine.
