This is a must because beginning to venture into this extensive world, can be daunting at first. But little by little, the amount of satisfaction that you get when you truly start embracing wine is limitless.
So Why Take a Wine Course?
Wine is not merely a common drink meant to be guzzled at any chance. It is a careful accompaniment to a meal, used to enhance flavor and balance a to something as simple as a cheese appetizer and as complex as a festive dinner. A certain grape which is grown in Italy is generally very different than that grown in any other country. You are in essence, drinking the culture and care that goes into a wine.
This is what makes a wine course so incredibly interesting. You don’t learn simply about a grape, process and production. You learn about the country and people behind each bottle! Choosing any old wine off the shelf is like buying microwave meal. There is no reason to spend a fortune on a meal or wine that you simply can’t properly appreciate. But you don’t have to be brown-nosed to “properly appreciate” a wine.
It is as simple as learning the flavor profile of a type of grape, what it pairs best with and when and how it should be drunk. See it as an investment, as you will be spending your money wisely as you drink wisely.
