Wine 101: The Art of Vino-Typing
Presented by Cathy Waters of Waters of the Vine
Learning to taste wine is no different than learning to appreciate music or art. The pleasure you receive from wine is proportionate to the effort you make to learn what you like. The more you know about your sensory abilities, and those of friends and family with whom you drink - the better you will be able to enjoy wine.
