Recently, I decided to challenge myself to learn as much as I can about the different types of wine that are out there. I have always enjoyed having a glass of wine with dinner. However, I never really knew much about how to pick the right wine for a particular meal or about why some wines were considered better than others.

I think it will be a lot of fun to learn more about how wine works with food and how to recognize good wine versus bad wine. I plan on doing a lot of reading online. More importantly, however, I also plan on attending a lot of wine tastings in my area. I have my husband on board with the idea, which will make it a lot of fun. I think it is great that we will both be learning together. Our friend owns a roofing company (his website here), and he and his wife know about lots of different wines. They even did a romantic getaway trip to Napa Valley last year. Sounds fun to me.

Going forward, it should be a lot of fun to experiment with different kinds of wine each time we cook a meal. I think we are both going to have a great time becoming wine aficionados. Even though there is a lot to learn, I am convinced that it is going to be a really exciting and enjoyable process for both of us.
