If you have ever seen any of the cinematic masterpieces, you know that wine is one of those things in life that can give you the impeccable sensation of class, elegance, and luxury all in one. Picture an amorous meeting of two lovers, a retro scene in one of the Parisian cafes, or a delicious meal shared by a group of friends, accompanied by laughter and glass-clicking. Whether it’s a seductive red wine, a joyful white wine, or a romantic rosé, it just feels right.

If you have ever found yourself dwelling on one of such fantasies, you should know that they are more accessible than you might think. Wine drinking is classy, whoever and wherever you are. It doesn’t always have to be a romantic date in Paris; on the contrary, it might be a gloomy afternoon in Poland. And don’t worry if you’re new to wine. To start your delicious journey from an amateur to a connoisseur, you only need two things: an empty glass and our simple wine guide.

  • First, you have to choose a blend. Simply put, it is a combination of different grapes meant to create a unique taste of your wine. Even though there exist dozens of wine types, you don’t have to go through all of them; you can start from the best wines that are widely famous for their quality, such as Merlot or Reisling. Even if they don’t sound like wines for beginners, trust us on this one.
  • Make sure you serve your wine at the right temperature. If it is too cold or too hot for a particular blend, your first experience with wine might not be that enjoyable. Always remember: once you pick the perfect wine, check its recommended serving temperature.
  • Pair your wine with an adequate meal. Wine selection for beginners is wide; the variety of tasty dishes to pair your beverage with is even wider. Typically, wine is served with cheese, vegetables, fruit, meat, and seafood. However, the type of dish you choose matters, as they typically also go with blends.
  • Lastly, give yourself time. Experiment. Search. Be curious. The web is an excellent source of information for all the questions you might have, whether it’s how to taste wine like a professional, grow wine, or even sell wine online. With a sparkle of curiosity and genuine interest in wine tasting, you will become a connoisseur in no time.
