“Read and taste; taste and read. Better still, join or start a tasting group; compare impressions. This is the best way to learn the many types of wine.
Yet tasting is not everything. Wine is for drinking. The true wine lover will drink wine frequently and regularly. For one thing, good wine is equally good for your health. It aids digestion, helps keep the arteries clear; and above all, it appeals directly and uniquely to the sense of sight, smell and taste.” Michael Broadbent in Decanter.
