    pro tip: before serving the wine, "let it breathe"
    open the bottle (and if you have one, pour it in a glass serving jar) about 1 or 2 hours before serving it. Obviously this is not to sparkling wines

    Love your channel! My problem with wine's is that the bottle always says stuff like "ohh has hints of chocolate…" or "aroma's of grape, and fruit" I drink it…. tastes like wine. I have no idea how to pick out the subtle details!

    I would definitely recommend wine tastings! If you're lucky enough to live near a wine region, these are often free at the cellar door, or there may be other events near you. That way you can try a bunch of different wines and find out what you like, and even buy a few bottles of your favourites. Another option is wine tasting party, where all your friends chip in a small amount and you try a selection of wines 🙂

    i feel the sweetness factor should be mentioned, as it should be labled with the wine, keeping note of what sweetness factor you like could help you pick out a similar type

    Cheap wine is as good as the expensive stuff if you just aerate it enough – either by a fancy thing you put on the bottle neck, or just… blitz it in a food processor.
    Otherwise avoid wines that contain sulphates, they'll give you a headache /while/ you're drinking it.

    One thing a few friends of mine did was to host a wine night – everyone brought a snack or a different bottle of wine so we could try a variety. A lot of my older friends brought wines that they knew they enjoyed and wanted other people to try and it was a lot of fun.

    A Pinot noir or Pinotage would be my choices.

    If you live in Pennsylvania you can rarely go wrong if you buy a "Chairman's Select" wine. They are often affordable and have helpful description signs telling you how dry/sweet and full bodied the wine is.

    How I choose wine: "which red has the smallest number next to the dollar sign?"

    My favorite tip is finding the grape varieties that aren't as well-known! They can be a lot less expensive, but just as good. Examples: I found out I love aromatic whites like Viognier and Torrontes, which run me like… $10-$12 a bottle.

    If you could kindly make a video about what to do when you get into a car accident, that would be really helpful! I just had a hit and run and had no idea what to do.

    how to like a type of wine: try it with someone who really likes that type of wine and can help you figure out wtf you're supposed to be tasting lol. (first wine i liked was chardonnay, specifically the more buttery kinds instead of the crisp kinds, because that's what my parents' neighbor likes lol

    also i'm fortunate enough to live in northern california within driving distance of a lot of different winery areas, so going wine tasting is a nice way to figure out what you like if that's an option for you. just maybe not napa if you're cheap. unless you're going with a group that includes your parents and they might pay for you 😛

    also maybe if you're going to talk about it at all, i'd say maybe recommend doing just a little research on the names of types of grapes, so you don't do something like what i did and get confused by something called a "dry riesling" when you thought "riesling" was just another kind of sweet dessert-ish wine (it's actually just another kind of grape, common in south africa. i just happened to have tried a really sweet riesling the first time i came across it lol)

    nighthawk black bota box, yes thats right, a box is my favorite wine, its pitch black and jammy and a balanced sweet/spicy flavor. its less dry than most reds. its so good, ive never had a better red wine in my life.

    For me it's pretty simple: I just want my wine cheap and not sweet

    I like Barefoot sweet red blend which is a sweet fruity taste and Barefoot pink moscato which is not as sweet as the red, but still sweet. Both are less than $20. Those are pretty much the only 2 that I've had more than a glass of though. lol. The owner of the liquor store helped me pick them out.

    Love going to wineries for tastings 🙂

    I agree, just try some. I'm a moscato fan, but even this can vary from maker to maker. And I agree, don't worry about being cheap, a five dollar barefoot is always nice for a relaxing evening after a long work week.

    My wife and I are new to wine – we only started trying them a few years after college, because wines were stigmatized as being pretentious and snooty when most everyone else was indulging in local craft beers and hard liquor.

    That being said, we've found a few that we both agree are worth it for special occasions – the Hurricane Class 5 from Naples Winery (in Tin City) was a nice local discovery and I highly recommend it if you prefer sweet wines 🙂 http://www.thenapleswinery.com/hurricane-class-5.html

    When I was in college, my roommate and I would choose our wine based on the animals on the labels – it was 100% like choosing a book based on its cover, but it was a great way to figure out what we liked. We went for the $6-10 range and managed to find a discount wine emporium with a ridiculously varied selection at discounted prices. I think what worked best for me was starting with a pink wine (happy middle ground!), determining what I liked about it, and branching out from there. Once you can find an adjective or two to describe what you do or don't like, you can explore from there – don't be afraid to be adventurous!

    I love Rieslings and Muscatos because they're sweet dessert wines. 🙂 I think of them like coffee with a lot of cream and sugar, whereas dry wines are more like black coffee – an acquired taste.

    Figure out first, what type of wine you like. Chardonnay? Sauvignon Blanc? Merlot? Cabernet Sauvignon? Riesling? Pinot Gris?

    Then try different regions…

  • Vicky Mc
    Posted September 19, 2018 8:36 PM

    just pick a drink that you like the taste of. don't be tricked into the "acquired taste" thing, that's mostly people trying to push what they like onto you. 🙂

    wine tips: french red wine, italian white wine, portuguese green wine, and american sewage.

  • MrOpellulo

    Some tips:
    1 – Wine tasting is not a science: even the best sommelier cannot pass a double blind test, so try different products until you find the one of your taste, take any advice with a grain of salt (including the following).
    2 – White wines are trickier to produce and usually of lower quality (or more expensive) so, unless you know what you are buying (or if you have in mind a fish based dinner) it's better to stick with the reds.
    3 – Dry (intended as Brut, not sweet) ones are the best wines: unless it's a very specific product (Moscato, Vinsanto etc…) they are the result of a insufficient or not complete production.
    4 – Import tip: italian wine production it's defined by a label around the neck of the bottle ("DOC" blue = high production standards; "DOCG" brown = even higher production standards) while not an immediate seal of quality you can be sure the wine it's good (and you can resell this info to astonish your guests)
    5 – Import tip 2: spanish wines are defined by a small label in the back of the bottle: every region has it's own productions but if there is the label the wine was produced under high standards.
    6 – Import tip 3: Try at least one time in your life an Hungarian white (like a Tokaj)… you can thank me later
    7 – Sparkling wines are an entire category of their own and they are either of very high quality (Prosecco, Cava, Champagne) or really poor (almost everything else)
