Learning about wine can become both a costly and time consuming habit. You can read, study, and memorize all you want, but at the end of the day, there's no better way to learn about vino than to get your hands on as much wine as possible. So what exactly does that mean? That's right-- tasting, tasting, and more tasting.
While endless amounts of tasting does indeed sound like heaven, bearing the financial burden that a non-stop supply of bottles demands can become quite costly. Rather than calling it quits (or go broke in the process,) we've got a better solution-- host an at home wine tasting! With a couple of friends, a few bottles, and some basic supplies in between, you've got yourself a bona fide DIY tasting class. Follow the steps below for a seamless night of sip-induced studying.
And the best part of it all-- behind the whole learning thing, of course? Finishing up those bottles with your group of unofficially certified, 'connoisseur' friends! Break out the charcuterie, cheese board, and get the party started. After all, the point of wine is to enjoy it with the ones you love most. Plus, nothing tastes as good as a glass of post-study vino. So grab a glass, pour some of your favorite, and soak up every last sip of those newly identified bottles; go on, you deserve it.
