Learn About Wine

If you think that the word Merlot is one of King Arthur’s aide, you need lots of help; about wines that it.  In fact, many of us need wine education simply because we were not exposed to wine until recently.

In Malaysia, as far as I can remember, wine drinking was not a norm about 8 to 10 years back. In those days, brandy and whiskey bottles filled dinner tables and adorned family closets.  These days, wine has found themselves a more popular choice as the occasional drink.  However, many of us including moi, need help in terms of wine appreciation.

If you have watched some documentary, you will see wine connoisseurs testing the wine through sight, smell and taste.  They inspect the wine in the light, swirl the glass, smell the wine and sip the wine.  After all that, they will be able to provide a rating.  Given the chance that I do all that, I will not know what I’m doing.

To really know wine, it is best to check into a wine class and start learning.  It will cost you some money but it’ll be worth it in the long run.  Besides wine classes, you can join wine tasting events where wine experts are there to advise you. After all the learning, you’ll definitely appreciate wines better and you will discover that Chardonnay is not a celebrity’s name. ;)
