Wine Folly gives some great advice to anyone that struggles with choosing a bottle of wine from the huge assortment of bottles they carry at the store.
Curious to know how to choose a bottle of wine from the store?
It’s easier than you might think! In fact, there are really only 2 critical steps for choosing wine. You don’t even need to be an expert to find great wines.
1. Know the style of wine you’re looking for before you arrive (bold? white? pairs with bbq?)
2. Go to a real wine store or a store that’s know to specialize in wine.
Why? Well, if there’s one thing to learn on choosing wines is to stop shopping for wines at grocery stores; the smaller, more hand-crafted wines tend to go to the exclusive wine stores first!
