I’m Mimi (@mimisipsvino), and I’m pretty new to this wine thing. Don’t get me wrong – I’ve been drinking it for years, but it wasn’t all that long ago that I was swigging pink liquid from a 5-liter box. Thankfully, my tastes have evolved, and I’ve recently begun studying wine (sort of) for real.
Armed with a few great books, Google, and an insatiable curiosity, I’m on a mission to decode the intimidating world of wine for the casual drinker: How do you read a wine bottle label? Which wine gadgets do you actually need? Do you need different glasses for red and white wine? How do you pronounce Sangiovese?
Join me on this journey so we can all make more informed decisions the next time we’re handed a wine list or faced with a wall of wine at the store. Cheers from Los Angeles!
