I am a craft beer drinker and have not had red wine very often in my life. Being brought up Catholic, I recall the communion stuff that caused me to make "that face" when sipping out of the challis.
However, I want to learn more about wine and take time to learn to drink and appreciate it before our April trip. So my for my New Year's-ish resolution: I want to drink ;-)
My beverage of choice is generally a craft beer. I live in Asheville, NC (the self-proclaimed beer city with over 1000 local craft beers on tap and double-digit local breweries). The closest thing we have to a winery here in town is our Biltmore house.
So, tell me how to get started. Ideas?
