Top 10 Wine Myths (part 1)

We all have a know-it-all friend or family member who really hits their stride when opining on the minutia of wine and the “rules”. Yuck! The funny thing is, often these self-appointed “experts” are just plain wrong. Once you really learn a lot about wine, you are actually humbled by what you …

Top 10 Wine Myths (part 2)

So if a wine gets a “98″ from some wine critic you should love it right? Wrong! (Unless that critic’s me of course, jk) That’s like saying you need a different wine glass for every grape, or that all bag-in-box and screw-top wines are bad, or that a wine has to be expensive to be good. There are…

Understanding Wine – The 4 “V”s

What are the key factors that determine what a wine will taste like? There are 4, often found right on the label. So yes, if you know about these you can tell a lot about what a wine will taste like, just from reading its label. Bingo! In case it’s not obvious, this is a BIG deal in your wine learning. And it’s…

The Varietal: The Grapes in Wine

One of the 4 V’s in wine, the Varietal, will tell you a LOT about what a wine is like, because it’s the main ingredient! You have to do some of the tastings in this course to see for yourself what the key varietals are like, but once you do, you’ll have as much confidence in a wine shop as you would when…

The Vineyard – Where Grapes are Grown

Fine wine grapes are just like other plants – kinda picky about where they grow. That’s why the Colorado Rockies give us beer (and baseball-nice combo!), and why you don’t find any Arctic Chard or Jamaican Pinot Grigio, mon. What are the characteristics of great Vineyard regions–the…

Cutting right to the chase: when it comes to wine, EVERY year is a “vintage year.” If that’s news to you, guess what–you’re not alone! This video will clear up the confusion around the 3rd V – Vintage – as well as alleviate, now and forever more, your stress around whether or not you are…

The Vintner – How Wine is Made

The 4th V in wine – the Vintner – is simply the winery or producer of the wine. And just like the food at two different Italian restaurants can vary because each has its own chef with a personal style of cooking, two different wines from the same Varietal, Vineyard region and Vintage can…

Understanding Wine Labels

A wine’s label can tell you everything you need to know about the wine’s taste, before you buy it, once you know how to decode the key types of labels, where to find the 4 V’s on wine labels, and your palate profile–that’s Section 4 and you’re almost there! But start here to get familiar with the main…
