Wine For Beginners

Once I crossed over the 21st year line I decided that I wanted to start experimenting with different drinks. Don't get me wrong, I like my vodka but doing jello shots with Grandma at family events is just out of the question. Time to class it up and venture into the unknown category called Wine!
The problem? I know absolutely nothing about wine. After a few days of research I created a little Beginner's Guide to wine and once a month I will post a review about each new wine I try. I hope this helps anyone that is trying to get they draannnkk on but with their pinkies out! :)
