I've been drinking wine for a long time, but I only recently got serious about it. As a result, I consider myself a novice, but I've nearly advanced to the intermediate level. I spend a large part of my time reading about wine, shopping for wine, and I spend the rest of my time drinking wine.
Wine, just like the people that drink it, has personality. From birth to consumption every second of every day directly influences the wine, mimicking life....Plus I like to drink it!
