Appreciating Wine

 

 

Wine Appreciation

 

The theme that runs through these pieces is learning how to "read" a wine. Reading a wine accurately enables a wine lover to gain insight into and  arrive at a deeper illumination of its quality.  I have always felt that it is not a matter of picking apart its pH, or residual sugar, or being burdened by jargon, but rather, it's about developing the confidence to feel secure enough to pay interior attention to one's own senses.  The articles can serve as a form of self study to guide you through this delicious journey.
