The Five Steps

1. Taste Wines made from a single variety so that you get to know flavor profiles. This doesn’t mean that wines blended from a number of grape varieties are not worthy – it just means that when training your palate keep it simple.

2. Help your brain remember what you sampled, always taste more that one wine at a time – preferable where the comparison tells you something.

3. Distinguish wines that come from cool climates from those from warm climates – identify those wine varieties that do well in certain climates and countries.

4. Take your wine tasting seriously by putting skin in the game – buy the wines you like by the case or half-case – build a cellar.

5. Cellar-building strategies that enhance your expertise, hold on to the wines you like and explore options in expanding your knowledge without breaking the bank.
