Trying to learn about wines is an incredibly arduous task. There are so many varieties, and so many things to learn when it comes to understanding varietals, regions, and vineyards. I don’t believe I could ever claim to be a wine expert, but one thing I would love to know is… how to order my wine, and what I like.
So far I’ve already narrowed down a few of my favorites. I usually go for a white wine. Preference for region varies for me, since I’m still unable to taste the difference. I love Sancerre (a sauvignon blanc variety). Since I am new to wine, it’s arguably understandable that I enjoy light bodied white wines, versus a more full bodied red. I much prefer something that’s going to be smooth.
Here are some of the latest wines I’ve had:
