It is possible to start a wine collection on a budget. Here's how - By Lorie Konish
December 02, 2018 ~ There are classes around the country that will help you learn to taste. The benefit of those lessons is they typically let you sample wines from around the world and have an expert there to guide you, Paris said.
If you have more time and money available, you way want to consider attending larger events, such as Vinexpo or the New York Wine Experience. The website LocalWineEvents also lists wine events that are happening in your area.

November 20, 2018 ~ What is it? The most complete app for wine events: just plug in your city/location and it will list upcoming wine tastings, festivals and experiences.

It houses a ‘wine vacation’ area, giving details of wine and food holidays such as ‘Spring in Tuscany’ or ‘Barging in Burgundy’.
How To Buy Wine For A Dinner Party - By Carolyn Stine
September 13, 2018 ~ What’s the best way to learn about and taste new wine?
Take advantage of your local wine merchant! They are there to help. As you start to build your foundation of wine knowledge, categorize the wines you do like with a few helpful descriptors (or sometimes just as helpful, categorize wines you didn’t like and be able to articulate why with a few descriptors).
When you visit your wine shop, tell them what you’ve been drinking and why you liked or didn’t like a wine, then ask if they have any suggestions for something new you should try. Don’t be afraid to share price-point constraints, no one needs to feel pressured into spending more than they’re willing, and it will help the associate narrow down their suggestions. I’d also recommend seeking out wine tastings in your area. The Juice is a free weekly newsletter that lists wine tastings and events, some are even free! The more you expose yourself to, the more you will expand your knowledge and palate.
Which wine app is worth downloading? - By Gwen Ihnat
September 04, 2018 ~ I often take a picture of the label on a wine bottle I really like, whether at a restaurant or a friend’s house. How often I actually search that particular image collection when wine shopping later is another thing—honestly, I usually forget. So I may be just the kind of person who’s looking to extend their wine enjoyment by using an app of some sort. But which one? After all, a plethora of wine apps exist, focusing on everything from food to types of grapes to your cellar inventory (ha, I can barely keep nine wine bottles in my dining-room holder). I overloaded my phone by downloading a bunch, then waded through which ones we all might find the most useful. You can even track wine events and other places to drink wine with Wine Events (by localwineevents.com)
