I love wine. I love it so much that I’m trying to become a wine connoisseur. Learning about the different flavors, colors, textures, and smells of wine isn’t easy. It takes a lot of hard work and practice to get it down right. Levi is more of a beer-man but he likes wine too and knows that I love it, so as a gift to me he gave me a wine tasting book that gives the basics on how to taste and appreciate wine. And this book got me into thinking, maybe for our Honeymoon we could go to

Wine tasting 101
- Tilt the glass away from you and hold it up to a white background to check for clarity and color.
- Wine should be clear, not murky.
- Different shades of wine mean different ages. (White wine: the younger the clearer, Red wine: the younger the deeper purple)
- Sniff the wine by sticking your nose into the glass to detect different subtleties of flavor. Most wines have flower, spice, and fruit smells.
- Sip the wine by spreading it around your tongue and breathe in slowly. This will allow the taste become stronger.
