As I’ve said many times before, wine is a moving target, what you like one year may leave you flat the next. One of the biggest rookie mistakes people make when starting their wine cellars is stocking it with major wines that win all the points. You can’t drink points folks!
If you’re starting a wine cellar this year or even if you’ve been building one for quite some time, do yourself a favor- slow down and experiment. Learning about wine is a never ending experience and watching your tastes change is just part of the fun. Because we all tend to get carried away when it comes to making purchases, try to make a plan with a purpose. My $2500 cellar may not be perfectly suited to your needs, but it’s a great place to start!
