Stepping into the Diamond Ridge Market, you may be overwhelmed by the thousands of wines in the store, especially if you just dipping your toes into the vast ocean of wine for the first time. In the spirit of being a recent college graduate, I enlisted Tyler Jolley, the head buyer and sommelier, to help me put together a small list of things to know about wine. Whether you consider yourself a wine novice or a super-versed vino taster, these are all important elements to remember. Consider this list a helpful guide to stepping into the sometimes-intimidating world of fermented grape juice. Also, we've put together a guide of choices, from the basic to the more complex flavors, to help out the wine illiterate. Somebody had to taste these wines for you, it might as well be me.
