Anti-Snob Wine Appreciation from The 4-Hour Workweek

Saturday, 29 Nov 2008
 

Four-Hour Workweek author Timothy Ferriss recently wrote a fun blog post called Anti-Snob Wine Appreciation: 7 Tips from Sonoma. This is something I can appreciate, as someone who loves wine but doesn’t like to spend a ton of money on bottles to drink with dinner.  To me, “good wine” is all about the experience, not the price tag.  Did it taste good?  Did it complement the food?  Was it a pleasure to drink on its own?  Was it an interesting varietal I’d never tried before?  Did it teach me something about a region?  These are the things I care about when I pick out a wine.  So without further ado, here’s a quick rundown of Ferris’s “anti-snob” methods of wine appreciation (and be sure to read the full article):

1.  Don’t worry if you can’t pick out the “hints of coriander, cauliflower, and cat fur” in your wine — you don’t have to be a supertaster.

2.  Move from the elbow instead of the wrist to swirl like you were born with a wineglass in your hand.

3.  Remember that tasting is smell-dependent.

4.  Try using a wine aerator.

5.  Try wines at different temperatures and don’t over-chill the whites.

6.  Go for varietals that are out of style.

7.  It’s all about you.

PS — If you haven’t read The 4-Hour Workweek, check it out. It will change your life.
