Course: Wine basics: Top ten wine varietals

The world drinks over 30 billion bottles of wine every year. Learning about wine helps you not only appreciate the history and hard work that goes into production but also find the right bottle for you.

I have an honors degree in hospitality management, with an emphasis on viticulture. As a sommelier, business owner, and world traveler, I have had the chance to sample wines in their most traditional and outstanding forms. Each grape varietal has its own distinct character. My goal is to help you select and delight in wines in which these special qualities shine.
