The name of this website summarizes our mission pretty well! Happily one of the best ways to learn about wine is to taste and drink it, and we write lots of reviews to help you find wines that should pique your interest and enhance your enjoyment. But there is more to appreciating wine than this. As Jancis Robinson says,
… true wine appreciation rests not in evaluating a glass of wine in isolation, awarding points according to its performance against some notional objective paradigm of wine quality, but in learning as much as possible about where, how, and why it was produced.“REGIONAL FLAVOUR”, VINES MAGAZINE, APRIL/MAY 2010, P. 24.
So we also try to provide some background knowledge and information with shorter posts and longer articles that we hope will enhance your enjoyment. Welcome to WineDiscovery!
