Choosing The Right Wine For Yourself
Choosing the right wine can be hard, especially for people who are new to wine and don’t know much about the different kinds. But it’s not as hard as it might seem at first! The most important thing is to know what you like and to know some basic facts about wine that can help you choose. Of course, we always can help you at Boone’s, but we want you to feel confident in your own decisions!
Start with what you know: The first step is to learn about the main types of wine. Red, white, and rose are the three main types of wine. Most of the time, red wine is fuller-bodied and heavier, while white wine is lighter and more acidic. Rose wine is sort of in the middle. Once you know these basics, you can start to learn about the different kinds of wine in each category.
Think about the situation: Often, the type of wine you choose will depend on the event. For example, a white wine might be better if you are having a light meal or appetizers. On the other hand, a red wine might be a better choice with a steak or a heavier meal.
Find out what you like: When it comes to wine, it’s important to know how you like to taste it. Do you like wines that are sweeter or ones that are drier? Do you like big, strong wines or ones that are lighter and more delicate? If you know what you like, you can narrow down your choices and make a better decision.
Check the tag: The label on a bottle of wine can tell you a lot about the wine, like what kind it is, where it comes from, and when it was made. This information can help you make a better choice and limit your choices.
Think about how the wine goes with the food. Some wines go better with certain kinds of food. For example, seafood and chicken go well with white wine, while beef and lamb go well with red wine. When planning a meal, think about the spices and flavors in the food and choose a wine that goes well with them.
Don’t be afraid to ask for help. If you don’t know which wine to choose, don’t be afraid to ask for help. A sommelier or wine steward can give you advice and suggestions based on what you like and the event- we have multiple on staff at Boone’s! We are always here to help.
Experiment: Lastly, don’t be afraid to try new things and experiment. Wine tasting is fun and can teach you a lot. Trying different kinds of wine can help you find new favorites and broaden your taste.
Picking the right wine can be easy and fun if you follow a few simple rules. Think about the event, know what you like, read the label, think about food pairings, ask for help if you need it, and don’t be afraid to try new things. With these tips in mind, you can choose wine with confidence for any event.
