Tools for learning about wine

When I first started in the business every week or two I would go to a bookstore and purchase any possible book I could find on wine.  My employer at the time offered classes and seminars, which I took full advantage of.  I will never forget my favorite part of learning about wine was when we had to take a case of wine home every two weeks for free.  The reason we got to take this mixed case home was it was our homework.  We had to open one bottle at a time and fill out a tasting sheet.  I will go further into the tasting sheet later.  Two books that I still suggest that I find so helpful and have purchased for many associates to learn from are: “Wine for Dummies” great basic wine book that is a fun learning tool.  Then “Windows of the World”, Complete Wine Course by Kevin Zraly’s.

Most local colleges have wine education classes and also “Wine Spectator” online.  I have taken many from Wine Spectator as it is another wonderful learning tool.  It is so enjoyable to learn about wine especially when the greatest tool is your palate and drinking bottle after bottle. Cheers!

    Well said – the best way to learn is to open up bottles and drink!

    Dear WineGodess…
    Quite by accident I came across your blog. I’m in Australia and into wines. As you follow Wine Spectator, you might look at my published calculations on world wine leaders and love to hear from you. http://www.digitaljournal.com/article/302159
