Awaken The Wine Expert Inside You

May 11, 2015


This goes without saying – chicks dig guys with style. And what better way to express your style than by demonstrating your knowledge and expertise in the realm of fine wines?

Even if you don’t like wine or alcohol in general, knowing what to order or to recommend can turn you from chump to champ in her eyes. With that in mind, here are a couple of tips you can use to come off as a true wine expert.

Start From The Beginning

First off, you have to know that there are two types of wine.

Red wines are usually full-bodied and have a flavor of dark fruit as well as green bell pepper. These wines go well with meat and spicy foods.

On the other hand you got white wines. White wines are divided in three subtypes – Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, and Riesling.

There is very little difference between these three and once you’ve tasted each, you’ll be able to recognize any of them with a blindfold on.

Getting Into The Matter

There isn’t a guide about wine tasting. The best way to get acquainted with this hobby is to literally start tasting wines and remembering which ones you like and which ones you don’t.

After you’ve taken a shot at a couple of glasses, make a list of brands and years that suit you best. This way you’ll always be able to remind yourself of which wine is the drink for you.

Last, but not least, is a decanter. If you’re planning on ever bringing your date home for a glass of wine, make sure your 10-year-old Chardonnay is sitting in a decanter.

This will prevent it from losing flavor and tasting like vinegar, which it tends to do when it comes in contact with air.
