Nobody has to be an expert to appreciate wine. Anyhow, a certain number of suggestions will help you to get the best out of it: Look at the wine; Smell at the wine; Taste the wine; Discuss the wine.
Look at the wine
First, we get pleasure from admiring wine in our glass: let us note the colors, how it catches the light. Passionate wine lovers judge the color of a wine by placing it in front of a white cloth to see if it is dark or pale.
Smell the wine
You must not hesitate to hip your nose deeply in a glass of wine. Of course if your neighbor is smoking or wearing a strong perfume, if your plate gives off a strong smell, it is a waste of time trying. Smelling a wine is preparing oneself to taste it really well.
Taste the wine
Always with small, careful sips. With each one you discover, through the reaction of your tongue, a new strength, a new shade of its bouquet. Take a sip of wine, pinch your lips, and make the wine travel in your mouth. Different parts of the tongue will give you different reactions: sweetness is given by the end, acidity by the sides and bitterness by the back. By making the wine travel in your mouth for a few seconds, you give your brain time to analyze the information it receives: sweet, acid, bitter.
As human beings, we like to speak of things which surprise us. So after tasting the wine, everyone of us will have something to say. To have a discussion about it together with your close friends at a peaceful night. Quite enjoyable, isn’t it?
But never forget: He who makes himself drunk does not know how to drink or eat.

“The pen is more powerful than the sword.” There have been many writers who use their pens to fight things that were wrong. Mrs. Harriet Beecher Stowe was one of them.
