In 2019, I want to understand wine better.

I love drinking wine. But I don’t know much about it.

The combination of grape varietals, locations, wineries, and vineyards makes the drink inaccessible.

I’ve always found wine confusing. Bordering intimidating.

This is not to say that I will 100% know and appreciate it, but I’m hoping to increase my knowledge by a little bit.

This means lots of tastings.

But what makes me most excited is the idea of sharing wine. Unlike beer which comes in sitting-consumable amounts or whisk(e)y, where I can purchase a bottle, take a sip, and leave it to enjoy later, bottles of wine are 750ml of liquid that need to be enjoyed at the moment.

The Strategy

  1. Read a lot about wine

    • Wine Bible

    • World Atlas of Wine

    • A Year of Wine

    • The New Wine Rules: A Genuinely Helpful Guide to Everything You Need to Know

  2. Drink a lot of wine

  3. Talk a lot about wine
