-- As a vineyard owner and wine enthusiast, Nikita Panasenko
knows exactly what it takes to continue discovering the perfect wine. As both a wine drinker and a wine creator, Panasenko is passionate about this discovery process. For this reason, he is lending his support to a new article
that highlights some tips for the amateur wine drinker on discovering a delicious new glass.
For wine drinking newbies, it is best to head to a store that specializes in it. The staff members at the shop will be able to provide personalized recommendations for the customer, and can shed some light on terrific food pairings. Whether the individual is searching for a wine to eat with cheese, with meat, or with dessert, the team at the wine shop will know exactly which types of vino to recommend.
Once a new wine drinker has some sense about what they like and do not like, it is easier to base future recommendations on these preferences. Some amateur wine enthusiasts enjoy writing down the new wines they have discovered, thus making it easier to explain to staff members at the wine shop exactly what they are searching for.
Understanding importers is another important piece of a wine education. When examining the bottle, the label on the rear will show who imported the wine into the country. Over time, the consumer may find that they prefer wines from specific importers, and may start to gravitate toward these selections. Picking up on patterns is an important part of discovering new wines. It is all about appealing to a person's set of taste buds, and beginning to understand what they do and do not find appealing is a helpful part of the self-discovery process.
Lastly, servers at high-end restaurants can also become a useful source of information. These people receive plenty of training about wine before they begin their job, and are focused on helping diners find the perfect glass. While a casual neighborhood burger joint may not be the right place to ask for some wine pairing tips, a more elegant restaurant in that same neighborhood can become the perfect place to learn and sample, leading to a number of important discoveries.
A diner hoping to gain some insight from a server should first explain to this person about the flavors and textures that they enjoy. This allows them to get a base for what the diner likes, thus making an appropriate recommendation. For those who are really hoping to try something new, it is best to avoid naming certain types of grapes by name, as this can pigeon hole the server's recommendations.
"There are many people out there who are passionate about wine. Whether it's a server in a restaurant, the owner of a wine store, or a family friend with quite the collection, there is certainly no shortage of information when it comes to finding the perfect wine," states Nikita Panasenko.
Nikita Panasenko has turned his passion for wine into a profit after opening up a winery in the hills of North Carolina in 2007. Panasenko hails from Fort Lauderdale, Florida, and moved to North Carolina to escape the city's heat and hurricanes. He is also passionate about horses, and had originally thought of raising thoroughbreds before he shifted his attention to the field of wine.
