Knowledge is buying power
Don’t assume that a high price necessarily indicates high quality. Although this can be true, some wines command higher prices because of a small harvest, and as a result, fewer bottles produced. If you learn about wine, you’ll be in a better position to spot the best-value vintages.
Start a club
Start a wine-tasting club with your friends or colleagues. You can arrange regular tastings where everyone brings a bottle of a particular type of wine. If you’re already a member of a book club or investment club, why not combine these gatherings with wine tasting, and kill two birds with one stone?
Attend an event
There are many wine-tasting events held throughout the country, though regions that grow grapes seem to have the most. Watch out for charity events that combine wine-tasting with auctions or other fundraising activities.
Take a course
There are lots of courses available to learn about wine, both in your local community and online.
