Picking a Wine

If there’s a time for wine then there’s also a place. The most common situations where you will choose wine include personal use or a bottle for someone else. The perfect wine for the moment you get off work is different from the one you’ll choose for your obligatory social gathering. There are, of course, a few moments when wine is just not appropriate.
