Did you start buying wine online as a result of COVID-19, and now stuck in a “wine rut” of regularly ordering the same labels over and over? Sarah Tracey offers five tips that empower you to explore outside your wine comfort zone.
The key is learning what type of wines you like, and if you know what flavors of ice cream you like, then you can figure out wine just as easily. Sarah gives you the buzzwords and descriptors you need to explain yourself to a sommelier or retailer. She also gives you homework assignments that you’ll like a lot more than calculus!
If you listen all the way through, you’ll find out why understanding tannin is like kissing a cat.
