Weclome, Dupreec.  We enjoy it when newcomers visit. It would be nice, though, if you told us a bit more about yourself.  What wines have you tried that you have liked?

Hi Dupreec!  I'd say we're in the same boat then, and while this site is very helpful I think another beginner's perspective will be helpful.  :-)  I

I usually drink a white wine, in the past I tried Zenfendal but that seemed a cop-out.  Right now When I drink wine it's usually a Moscato, although they don't all taste the same. 

What I would like to know is what wine I should drink with what foods or just for social.  Most of the time I drink what taste good, which I think is a good start.

In my humble beginners opinion; in addition to this site I really like the following two books 1. What To Drink With What You Eat 2. The Food Lover's Guide To Wine.  Both written by Andrew Dornenburg and Karen Page of The Flavor Bible fame.  The format of the books is partly general information and lists for reference.  Being a beginner I use both books in tandem as well as this website.  To borrow a couple phrases from frequent snoothers(you know who you are :-)) pairing is not a science... but as a beginner I appreciate a place to start.  Like the site the books are a compilation of opinions and prejudices.

I'll second that - I have "What to Drink With What You Eat" and I think it's a fantastic book.
