I'm a twenty-something recent college graduate (B.A. in Anthropology, minor in Psychology) and newlywed that grew up in a small town in Texas, so I suppose you could say that I haven't had a lot of "cultural experience" in my life thus far! Nonetheless (or perhaps due to this fact), I've decided to embark on a journey to learn about wine. I've always enjoyed the taste of wine, but my current knowledge of its nuances and attributes is rather limited. I don't have an exact strategy as of yet to guide me through this mission, but the basic idea is to try as many different types of wines as I can get my hands on that fit within my also-rather-limited budget, and to experience the beauty of wine without the snobbery it often implies. I will record my observations of each wine in a wine tasting journal and on my blog at http://thepourblonde.blogspot.com/
Through wine, I am able to expand my horizons—wine, at least for me, is a window to the rest of the world beyond my own. Although I may never get to see the Italian countryside, I can curl up with a good book and a glass of wine and taste its splendor.
