Wine Fundamental Series

Do you want to learn about wine, but don’t know where to start? 


We can relate. At one point, we struggled to find the best starting point for our wine education journey! So, we’ve designed the Wine FUNdamental series to be entertaining while still educational. You'll learn how varietals, regions and the process shapes a wine’s character.
