A few weeks ago, I was doing a wine tasting for my colleagues. Questions ranged from ’how do you avoid red wine lips?’ (I still don’t have an answer for that) to ’how can I find more wines like this?’
I started my WSET journey this year. WSET is one of the major wine education bodies worldwide. It provides a tightly rigorous approach to wine tasting. It’s a depth I love: it plays on my slightly obsessive and completist nature. But is overkill for those who just want to know how to buy good wine.
I want to bridge that gap. There’s hundreds of millions of wine lovers out there, but only a few dozen thousand with qualifications in it. Hopefully on a weekly basis, this Wine List can be a way to gain a bit more knowledge with practical things to follow.
I’m starting off with a few categories. Taste, Learn and Jargon.
I need your feedback. This will only work if you like it. You’re all taking a punt on trying something new, so please let me know what you love and hate about this. It’s the only way it’ll work. If you do love it, then please forward it to a friend so they can sign up too!
Without much further ado, cheers!
