With literally hundreds of thousands of wines on the market, choosing one can seem like a daunting task. So it's easy to forget that wine is just a beverage, and a very enjoyable one at that.
Despite the huge range of wines out there, the good news is that a little learning goes a long way. But wine isn't something you learn about and then "know". It's a personal journey of adventure and discovery. It wouldn't be much fun if you found a wine you liked and then drank nothing else for the rest or your life.
The beauty of wine is that every bottle is different, which makes it fun to keep exploring all the wonderful surprises the world's wine regions have to offer. This is the best way to understand your own personal tastes and to gain confidence in them, because no one knows your taste like you do. The fact that everyone in the room likes Pinot Noir doesn't mean that you have to and there's something wrong if you don't. After all, does everyone you know like broccoli? What's important is that you know what you like; that, after all, is what makes wine enjoyable to you. There's no point in drinking wine you've been told is good if you just don't like it.
So as you embark on your own, personal journey of wine discovery, pay attention to the wines you like and those you don't. This will help you develop a sense of your own taste preferences which, in turn, will help inform your wine choices and purchases.
Welcome to the wonderful world of wine. Enjoying wine is easier than you think and should always be fun.
