Suggestions for introductory wines?
I have never had a taste for wines, I don't know why. Maybe it's something I'd develop an interest in (or tolerance to?) over time... but it seems like I grimace with at every sip when I do try it.
The only wine I have enjoyed at all is Port wine, which I am told is a dessert wine. I do like that it is sweet (especially the cheap Taylor brand). But other than this, I have never been able to develop a taste for it.
I know wine is a classier drink, especially at certain restaurants and such. I have taken to smoking a pipe, having switched from cigarettes, and I think moving in the direction of leisure would include the grape juice too. But I am completely uneducated when it comes to wine.
Is there any brand/type of wine that may be a good entry into wine drinking? Maybe using the sweeter kinds like Port wine as a leap-off point. I am not looking to drink wine to get smashed, but more to relax and such.
Thanks in advance for any advise or tips!
