A very common question I get is how to choose a wine when there are so many options. It is easy to get overwhelmed by the seemingly unending varietals, vintages, and difficult to pronounce names.

For many of us, ordering wine in a restaurant is like shooting darts with our eyes closed. We set the bar quite low for ourselves when it comes to defining success, and often we're content just to hit the board.

I'm not a big fan of wine because it gives me a headache. And I'm not a big fan of beer because it tastes like dirty toilet water.
