     How to Select Wine at Stores

     Many of you know that I am into wines.  In fact, I have been collecting them for over 25 years.  So I frequently get asked how to buy wines.  I found a great article that has some simple tips.

    Tip 1:  Buy wine from a store that will help you.  Some places don’t help or worse, make you feel stupid.

    Tip 2:  Ask for help.  My number one advice because each store has something different so it is too hard to recommend a specific wine and expect it to be at every store.

    Tip 3:  Be sign savvy.  Many wines have signs in front of them describing them and with ratings.  Make sure it is the same wine AND SAME Year that they a describing.  There is quite a bit of variability between the same wine year to year.

    (Did You Know?  Some of my favorite wineries are Caymus, Joseph Phelps, Calera, Pride Mountain, and anything by Orin Swift.  The reason is that ALL the wines they make are good, red or white.)

    Tip 4:  Take a picture of the label.  Anytime you enjoy a wine take a picture.  You can use it shopping or look it up on a free app like Vivino to get more information.

    Tip 5:  Be as specific as you can.  Start with red or white, then how much you’d like to spend and if there is a wine or flavor that you have had previously that you liked.  Again, pictures are helpful.

    Last night there was a live version of Jesus Christ Superstar and finals of women’s college basketball won on the final shot.  Today Opening Day Parade, and men’s college basketball final.  The Roseanne show last week was viewed by 23 million.  This week golf’s most prestigious event, The Masters is on.  Who said there’s nothing good on TV?  Don’t get me started on how great Netflix is.


    Very, very satisfied with Dr McKenna & staff.  Would recommend to others without hesitation.  Heather
