But, there’s also a wealth of resources with information on everything from growing grapes to which type of glass works best with which type of wine. Whether you’re new to wine or need a refresher, below are five of the best wine information resources we’ve found.
Wine Folly has some of the best tutorials of any wine blog. Their guide to wine glasses is particularly comprehensive, discussing sizes, the difference between crystal and glass, how the glass affects the flavour and how you drink your wine should determine what glasses you buy.
