Introduce Yourself

Snooth User: ScubaDave81

Hello Snooth! I am a bartender and am on here to learn more about wines!

Posted by ScubaDave81, Jan 29.

I believe in being the expert in anything I do. While I do not plan on reaching any level of sommelier, I would like to be informed about wines to answer the question of both my guests and servers.

Good luck.

BTW, the best way to become an "expert" regarding wine is to taste all you can. Reading and talking about it are poor substitutes. Take every opportunity to taste everything you can, regardless of price. If you're at a bar, I'm sure people are coming in all the time to show wines. Many  bars typically get their wine from their liquor sales reps, which isn't always a good way to get decent wine, so tell the reps to make an effort to bring something good, rather than a perfunctory cheap white and red.

Dave, as usual GregT is providing excellent advice.  Experience is the best teacher, and the only way you can get 10 years of experience is to experience for 10 years.

Please keep us up to date with your wine discoveries, and please feel free to come back here with questions.
