Wine Tips & Education

Wine tasting shouldn’t be intimidating – it should be fun. A “good” wine is one that you like, it’s that simple. But there are a few basic points that will guide you toward a deeper understanding of wine and your own palate.

The resources in this section of our site should help you do that. If you still have questions not answered here, you can always email us with your inquiries or suggestions.

60 Second Wine Courses

DWO members receive via email our 60 Second Wine Course, a short primer on various topics in wine. Themes of past courses have included everything from wine headaches to Rosé.

Pairing Wine with Food

With the great variety of both cuisine styles and wines available today, the old rule of “red wine with meat and white wine with fish” doesn’t cut it any more. Is the “fish” sushi or a spicy Mediterranean-style fish stew? Is the meat grilled T-bone steaks or Vietnamese beef pho?

Wine is not just an object of pleasure, but an object of knowledge; and the pleasure depends on the knowledge.

Roger Scruton

Wine is the constant proof that God loves us and loves to see us happy.
