I’m not the first consumer that’s been interested in learning more about wine. I’ve barely skimmed the surface.
I have many, many friends who know a great deal about wine, connections that blog about wine and even cards at home that tell about wine.
I’ve read that it is entirely possible and even necessary to buy wine that’s affordable. Wine lists are so vast that it’s hardly appropriate to spend a ridiculous amount of money, especially if the occasion doesn’t call for it.
Here are some resources I’ve used to ripen my knowledge and experience:
1. Gary Vaynerchuk’s Wine Library
2. The Onologist’s Wine Blog
3. Wine Spectator
4. My nearby Wine and Spirits wine experts
