I have often struggled speaking in the wine world. Being that wine is made across the world and each country or even region can have their own ways of speaking the vine language.
You could be in France drinking Syrah and Australia drinking Shiraz, wondering… are these the same wines???
Well thank God for the “Dummies”, that created a cheat sheet for pronouncing the vast names of the wine world. They have taken an intimidating task and made it simple. Below is just a sample, but use the link below and bookmark it NOW. Believe me you will reference it often.
Soon you will feel at ease in any wine situation!
