How To Buy Wine For A Dinner Party


by Carolyn Stine

Sep 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.

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
