100 Wines Under $25…Good Idea
I’ve been critical of, well, anyone who chooses to dis the wine lovers, wine professional, and wine enthusiasts who utilize the vocabulary of wine and the intricacies of wine to explain their passion for it. These so-called snobs are ridiculed for "making wine inaccessible." It’s as though the critics of the wine enthusiasts think wine should merely be drunk, and not contemplated.
But there is a right way to make wine’s intricacies more accessible to those who choose to investigate beyond Yellowtail and Vino100 in Portland gets it right.
This new retail establishment Always has at least 100 wines under $25 on their shelves, they are serious about education, plus they provide a "wine barometer" for each of the $25 and under wines to explain the wines character in an easy to understand fashion.
First, I love the the idea of lots of $25 and under wines on the shelves of a store. But I love this "wine barometer idea where each wine is explained by its degree of fruitiness and body.
Whether you are a novice, dedicated learner or wine fanatic, it should be very easy to find what you want. Great retailers assure this. Vino100 is great idea.
