Wine Decoded: Unraveling the Mystery and Magic of Wine Tasting

Adrian Garrett

Choosing the right wine - for you, for a gift, at a restaurant - can be quite intimidating. Could it be made easier?

Does the wine list at the restaurant seem like rocket science to you?

Do you find yourself panicking at the store and picking the wine with the prettiest label?

Have you been disappointed by the wine you bought that way?

Well, we probably all have made the mistake of getting the wrong kind of wine. It's not too bad if you bought the bottle for yourself and decided you hated it. But what if you bought a sweet red wine as a gift only to find out the recipient's tastes are different? That's a decent portion of embarrassment right there...

A well-picked wine can make or break a meal, too. Forgetting the rules like "only whites for fish", a wine that's too robust will drown the steak you wanted to enjoy. That way, you will have wasted money twice - on food you can't taste and on wine you don't enjoy. Can there be a way to avoid all that confusion?

Thankfully - yes, and you don't have to go through years of rigorous, expensive training to become a wine taster. There's very little science to it, and all the equipment you need you already have - your eyes, nose and tongue.

From the moment you uncork the bottle to the last sip of your wine, there's a whole journey ahead of you that you have been missing all this time. Just like finding an Easter egg in a movie you love, knowing how to find out the subtleties in wine can be truly satisfying.

You've spent your hard earned money on that wine - so why not enjoy it to its fullest potential? There could be a whole new world right at the rim of your glass...

In Wine Decoded, you will discover:

  • How using just one sense can tell you a lot about your wine
  • What unexpected color to look for in your red (hint: it´s not red)
  • What are those tiny crystals in the bottle - and are they dangerous?
  • The array of hues and colors your wine can have
  • How to hone your wine tasting skills with simple exercises
  • The incredible depth of notes hidden within your glass
  • Whether smelling rocks, leather or tobacco in your wine is good or bad
  • How to recognize if the wine has faults that made it go bad before you drink it

And much more.

Go beyond what you know without leaving your home (well, except for grocery shopping to get wine) - you don't need to be professionally trained to become a good wine taster. Besides, good wine doesn´t also need to be expensive. Sometimes you pay more for the bottle than the wine itself.

Amaze your friends with your abilities and never buy the wrong type of wine again. You will notice how your taste in wine grows in less than a month. Gone will be the days of cluelessly, blindly picking a wine that sounds fancy or looks pretty. Life is too short to drink bad wine.

Pop the cork on the most incredible experiences - you will unveil the mysteries of every bottle with ease. Just click "Add to cart" and ready your glass.
