Welcome to Wine tips for the average Joe, a practical blog for the everyday wine drinker.
I am not a haughty-taughty wine snob with a formal education. I am someone who learned wine by drinking it, then selling it and sometimes helping a professional winemaker blend it.
This blog is not about right and wrong, it is about the questions that so many have asked in my years in wine but felt uncomfortable with the questions. Yeah, I get it. It is hard to ask the person in the wine store about wine. It can make some feel uneducated. And who wants to feel like that?
So, I thought I would write a little blog about what I have learned. It is the basics of wine – things people might want to know but were too shy to ask.
I hope you enjoy it! Pop open your favorite bottle and dive in!
