My husband and I are fairly confident wine drinkers. We took a trip to “Texas wine country” last year and received a rudimentary education in wine; we tend to lean toward Cabernets and Cab-Sauvignon in the $10 to $20 price range. Our preferred wines are bit ‘stronger’ than most of our social circle prefers so we tend to drink $4 bottles of Pinot Grigio regularly as well.
Wine. All the Time is a good introduction course to wines for someone who has an inclination to branch out from their comfort zone and discover the positives in a more varied range of wines. Ross mixes ladybro language with technical jargon to bridge the gap between the wannabe wine aficionado and the buyer of Berigner moscatos (hi badkittyuno!) Despite not having a formal education, Ross reiterates she is not a sommelier, wine blogger turned professional wine writer Marissa A Ross creates a funny and informal encyclopedia of wine.
If you don’t already have an interest in wine this will probably bore you and if you’re looking for a truly professional take on wine tasting the casual language will probably bother you but it is great for someone who falls in between. I don’t know if I would say it changed my views, I like what I like, but I have a better understanding about why I like what I like.
