Libations: Wine Folley

As an aspiring wine enthusiast, I’ve loved working through Wine Folly‘s visually engaging and easy to understand wine guides.  From, hilarious wine selection flow charts to genuinely helpful and straightforward pairing charts and breakdowns of grape varietals, Wine Folly has been an exceptional resource for both learning  about the basics and challenging yourself to learn more about new wines.

In this video, wine geek (and qualified sommelier) Madeline Puckette breaks down the process of wine tasting and how to begin getting more out of the experience.

Of course in her trademark comically ambivalent tone.  That is ultimately the best thing about Wine Folly… it takes the pretention out of wine and makes it accessible to all.  I mean, seriously, for all.

Be sure to check out the resto of her material and I’ll periodically feature standout Wine Folly articles in the future.
