Wine 101 – Wine Help (Page 2)
As a wine maker hanger on, I’ve learned more than I could ever want to know about wine. Honestly, I would rather just drink the delicious stuff. (Truly basic wine 101!)
However, when I think about it, some of the knowledge I have gained has helped me in buying better wine (not necessarily more expensive).

So, I decided, I would write some helpful hints that might actually be worth knowing by us laymen (and women), especially if it helps with buying wines.
