I like wine. Wait, that’s an understatement… I LOVE wine. A lot. More than most people. I drink it, I cook with it, I enjoy it.
One problem though… I do not have what other wine experts (some snooty wine snobs amongst them) might call proper wine knowledge. I know that I like Merlot, but that certain Shiraz’s don’t go down that well. I prefer red, but I also enjoy slightly dry white and the occasional *gasp* glass of sweet rose. Some cheaper wines are in my opinion stacks better than the very expensive varieties. So what if I enjoy them? My wine drinking has got nothing to do with being fashionable or any of the other things a lot of other non-wine -lovers-but-wine-drinkers-because-they-think-it-makes-them-cool think it portrays.
I do not like wine snobs laughing at me when I ask silly questions about wine, but how am I supposed to learn?
I think I do however need to attend a proper wine course… any suggestions on good ones to go to?
