About two years ago I embarked on a journey to become a wine connoisseur. Although I have not yet reached the status of Wine Taste Master, I have come quite far, and am very fond of a deep red with dinner.
I’m here to announce that today, February 18 is National Drink Wine Day. Now, this is separate from my personal favorite holiday, National Wine Day, which also happens to fall on my Birthday May 25. (Yes, there are two separate wine holidays. I’m assuming there are two holidays based on the two basic colors of wine?)
How do you become a Vino of the Elite, you may ask? Well, let me tell you…
This app is amazing. Need to know what wine to drink with dinner? Or for your anniversary? This app will guide you through all the vino rules. Oh, and it’s free.
Maybe you’re already a wine tasting professional- then you’ll love this….
Wine Enthusiast Tasting Guide
Created by The Wine Enthusiast Magazine, this app includes reviews and ratings, curated by their editorial team, (aka ACTUAL Wine Taste Masters.) Also, FREE!
Whether you’re a newbie or a pro, you need to get the Coravin System. This nifty device inserts a small needle into your cork, that allows you to pour your wine without actually having to pull the cork out. This keeps your wine fresh by not exposing it to oxygen, and allows you to keep drinking your wine for longer than 3-5 days. (FINALLY!)
