Hey everybody,,

I want to learn about wine to the extent that allows me to make knowledgable decisions on what wine to choose when at a restaurant or at the store instead of randomly picking. I don't want to be a wine "expert," but just decently informed https://portchecker.pro/.

I wouldn't be opposed to taking a class, but I would assume taking a sommelier course would be expensive - and probably overkill.

What would you recommend?

There are many books about wine. If you don't want spent much time for books, you may find many usefull articles in the internet. Anyway, I'm nit an expert, because I don't have any license or a diploma, but I learn something new about wine every time I visit wine stores or surfing the internet. 

This thread started a while back, but I recently got into wine and learned one thing; time and patients is everything. Books are amazing resources but what really helps you learn is tasting, smelling, observing the wine. 

 

Something I've done is choose a country (for me it was France) and learn about the grapes that thrive there. This lead to a rabbit hole of learning the regions within France and trying a few bottles from each. I'm still in France but I feel like I've learned so much from doing it this way as I see what each region has to offer in their wine. 

...and nobody seemed to noticed the original post was pure, unadulterated spam whose only purpose was to promote a couple of dodgy websites. 

Having said that, a hearty Forum welcome to Staystay and BCBigMac.

I hope you both staystay around awhile and keep contributing to the dialogue here.

Only if you're a doctor, but then yeah, you can afford a very nice cellar.

Not necessarily. I know that’s tongue and cheek, but I make far from doctors in my country. I think you can gain a lot of basic Tasting fundamentals from cheaper wines. Through learning about France in particular I’ve been able to learn about what I like/dislike, what i taste/smell through More affordable wines. Plus part of the fun is finding a hidden gem at low cost.
