Choosing Wine for a Dinner Party or Holiday:
Especially if you don't know a ton about wine. Sure, you know you like it. And you probably know a few grapes that you tend to enjoy. But if that's the limit of your wine knowledge, you may feel a bit insecure about bringing the best wine for a dinner party or buying the best bottles for your guests.
Don't sweat it. Choosing wine is easier than you think. You don't need to be a rocket scientist to know what dinner wine goes well with what dinner. (In fact, most rocket scientists are terrible at picking out wine!) All you need is an overview of types of wines, wine grapes, and what things generally go well together. All of which you can, amazingly enough, find on this page.
