Wine 101 : The Basics – Learn more to make your wine journey more fun.

Wine 101 : The Basics – Learn more to make your wine journey more fun.

In our fifth chapter on Wine, we thought it might be helpful to take several steps back and give you some “wine basics” to make wine more approachable -  from ordering in a restaurant to selecting in a store. We’re going to debunk some myths, give you tools to know what a wine will taste like, understand the four “V’s” of wine – Varietal, Vineyard, Vintage and Vintner and how to read a label.  Stay tuned over the coming weeks.  Shinsei 1/2 price Bottle Wine Mondays.
