Celebrate National Wine (Vino) Day... with BOTTAIA
Learning About Wine
If you’re looking for an approachable and easy way to learn about the history of wine and winemaking, look no further than Wine Folly. They’ve even set up a page dedicated to a brief illustrated history of wine that’s fun and informative.
It may be a bit overwhelming when you first get into wine. Sweet, dry, semi-dry, dessert wine, to chill or not to chill. . . we get it, it’s a lot of information. The best way to get acquainted with various wines and wine terminology is to get out there and start tasting. Wine stewards and sommeliers can help by sharing their professional guidance as you go about sampling. Our BOTTAIA tasting room staff are more than happy to assist when you visit and we welcome all of your questions. Remember, in the end, the best wines are those that you like best!
