Wine Talk

At one point or another in our pursuit of wine we bump into a wine-related word or two (I've had more than a handful through the years...) that we do not understand, or if we're lucky enough to understand, have no idea how to pronounce. This is when the blessed internet can give us a helping hand.
Remember, there is no "right" way to pronounce a name. It is usually a matter of opinion or regional preference. But the following websites can help you along. They feature explanations for terms and phonetic names, and some of them will even pronounce it for you. Check out www.wineloverspage.com/lexicon/ or http://www.tastersguildny.com/ (in the "All About Wine" section). http://www.bbr.com/ (search for "pronounciation") is a guide for how to pronounce Red Bordeaux.
Check it out and become more wine savvy today.

I usually keep it simple... it is not tough to pronounce red or white.

Love the site.
