Just poking around here. Found this site while surfing around at work (bad!). I used to really hate wine (Blasphemy). I was really into Bourbon for a long while. (which usually does not end well to be quite honest). I got into whites somehow, I still am kind of picky, have not really broken into the red world yet. What made me want to learn more was when I watched Sideways(total noob mentioning Sideways). It was Virginia Madsen's monologue about why she got into wine. I thought "hey maybe I could look cooler as a wine snob."

So I'm still poking around, (I know much more about distilling bourbon, than making wine) but I just find wine making this really fascinating and creative process, from grape to choosing what label goes on it. (except for Franzia in a box or something. heh)

A fascinating and creative process indeed. The good people here are extraordinarily knowledgeable, so feel free to ask if you have questions and whatnot.

Have fun!

Hi Cass,

Welcome to Snooth. This is a great place to learn a few things about wine and to share your experiences. What sorts of whites have you gotten into? There are so many wines out there you could spend a few years just going through the whites of the world and not feel deprived! I tend to drink more red but am looking forward to the weather warming up a bit and becoming a bit more chilled white appropriate, preferably by the pool or beach!

I really love light refreshing whites, really got into it while boating this summer.
