  1. Thanks so much Greig! It’s so great to hear there are so many like-minded people out there. And you’re absolutely right, there are so many wines out there to be discovered 🙂

  2. Great post, and congratulations on 700! This is some great advice and often overlooked. For me, wine is about being open-minded and realizing that everyone has a different take on it and palate. Luckily for us, there are so many options out there to be discovered :).

  3. That’s some great advice Brooke! Especially for anyone working in wine retail sales. Thanks for stopping by the blog and sharing your thoughts 🙂

  4. Haha love it Robin. It’s funny because some of my closest friends aren’t wine drinkers. I just figure that leaves more for me 😉

  5. Couldn’t agree more- & this is coming from a 17 year wine industry veteran. My other Advice would be to always look for wine advice from someone who asks YOU questions about what YOU like or usually drink before recommending something. I know what I like, & I tasted regularly stuff from around world as part of my job so I really know what I’m likelg going to like based on my extensive experience tasting & always leaning most towards certain regions or winemaking styles.

    But if a friend asks me ‘what Wines should I buy I do t recommend what I like.. I ask them 1st what they usually drink & what they like best to get an idea of their palate. Any good wine shop salesperson should do the same 🙂

  6. “Wine Inspirer!” I love that! You are most definitely a Wine Inspirer Casey! This is a great piece. There are so many wines out there to enjoy! I probably do get a little pushy encouraging people to get out of their comfort zone (still working on my best friend who has not had a glass of white wine since College, due to imbibing on too much one evening back then). But the best way to do that is to open a bottle and share!

  7. Cheers to fantastic advice for any wine lover…we believe everyone should trust their palate and enjoy the incredible spectrum of wines out there!
