Clueless about Wine

Clueless About WineThink decanting is a real fancy way of talking? Or that Shiraz is a big Las Vegas extravaganza?

From Clueless about Wine you will learn how wine is made, where it’s made, what it should taste like, which wine goes with which food, and much more. Clueless about Wine will also help you decide what wine to buy, how to entertain with wine, how to keep wine, and even how to give it away – if you want to, that is.
