Let’s say you’re a beer lover trying to figure out what all the fuss is about wine. We recommend going by the beers you love, of course. The good news is, if you're a microbrew fan you're already well on the way to learning to appreciate the nearly-infinite varieties of wines!
If you love ales or lagers: Try dry white wines such as Napa Valley or Sonoma chardonnays, such as the Beringer Private Reserve Chardonnay. The dryness and mouthfeel of the wine will provide a tasty and familiar way to quench your thirst on hot days.
If you love bitters or IPAs, you're already learned to that astringency is your friend, so sip on a verdicchio. Tannins should also be a treat for you, so try a bordeaux on for size.
If you love stouts: You want more body and flavor but fewer tannins, so a good plummy merlot or a solid malbec should be right up your alley. Try one of Casillero Del Diablo's delicious and affordable reds; you could very well love it!
This should provide you with a solid foundation for your new adventures in wine loving. Now, if you're a wine lover wondering about all the fuss about beers, relax – we're here to help. Look for our next installment on beer for wine lovers!
