First, choose a wine from your favorite country. France is always popular, but Spain, Italy, Canada, and Australia also make exceptional wines. Choose your varietal – that is, your grape – and pour only a splash of wine in the glass. Spin the glass and sniff. Try to detect the more subtle scents underneath the primary bouquet. Taste, swishing the wine around the palate. Draw air in your mouth across the wine for a stronger flavor.
Wine is good. Wine makes you giggle. Wine is fun.
