Q: How do we become wine connoisseurs?

Dick says....
Start with Hugh Johnson’s Pocket Wine Book. You can look up any word on your wine label—very handy when you’re staring blankly at a wall of wine in the shop. But the best learning tool is to taste wine with people in the know, so make friends at your local wine bar or take a class. Then you’ll be ready for the weightiest wine tome of all: The Oxford Companion to Wine. Serious stuff.
