It’s been 18 months since I started my Instagram wine account @girl.meets.wine and I shall now spew some hard-earned wisdom your way:
#1. Trust yourself – your nose, your palate, your way.
#2. Try anything once. Like it, try again. Hate it, don’t.
#3. Know the rules, but don’t be a slave to them.
#4. Wine should be fun. If it isn’t, you’re doing it wrong.
#5. Relax, the world will not go up in flames if you like a cheap wine or worse, anything other than a first growth.
#6. It’s OK to not know everything. Most people don’t anyway; they just get off pretending that they do.
#7. Wine is meaningless unless shared with a special someone. If you don’t have that special someone, drink beer instead. I’m kidding. Don’t. Do. That. Ever
