We have received good feedback on our dry Riesling from the North Coast of Northern California.

Why We Can't Tell Good Wine From Bad

Why We Can't Tell Good Wine From Bad | Wine 411 | Scoop.it

sawinery's insight:

Wine has a story and personality in every bottle. What may delight one person may disappoint another person because wine is such a personal experience.


Also, you will hear people say that they do not like Merlot, Chardonnay, etc. because they have tried it before and didn't like it so basically they are assuming they will have an identical or similar experience everytime.


If you assume this to be true you will be sacraficing diverse and pleasurable wine tasting experience and leaving a virtual wealth of found treasures on the table.
