I have to admit before I go any further that I know very little about wine at this stage.
What do I know at the moment?
I like white wine but generally don’t know what I like. I prefer dry to sweet and don’t like vanilla flavours or anything over oaked. I’ve occasionally enjoyed a red wine but found that harder to get into and so I know even less. I would tend to just look for grapes that I recognise and buy those without knowing much about the wine maker etc. This means I probably would buy Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Grigio & occasionally Chardonnay. I’m probably the sucker that believes the supermarket when they tell me the wine used to cost double and so I’d buy what’s on offer.
And for the future?
Well in 2009 I hope to change all that. My background is the internet and marketing but I want to develop this site and it’s sister site about Red Wine to be great online wine resources. I’ll need to find people who know much more than me and work hard to see what I can learn. I’m booked on a one day course in a couple of weeks so that will be a start and I’ve got a pile of reading to do as well 🙂
If you know more than me about wine (it’s not hard!) and might be interested in writing for this blog then get in touch and let me know more information.
Please also get in touch if you are interested in early opportunities to advertise on the two sites (whitewine.co.uk and redwine.co.uk) also if you have wine you would like reviewed then please get in touch and I’ll make sure someone in the know has a taste and does a review for the site.
