What is a wine geek? And why are they different (and much more tolerable) than wine snobs?
Wine Geek (wīn gēk)
A person with an eccentric devotion to alcoholic drinks made from fermented grape juice.
A wine geek doesn’t “only drink Pinot Noir” nor do they limit themselves to blue chip wines. A true wine geek has boundless enthusiasm for finding all kinds of wine–from undervalued gems to wines from a unique origin. It’s nice to have a wine geek close by because they love to introduce their friends to new wines (means more for you!).
We’d like to pay a little homage to all the wine geeks out there.
