Let's face it, folks: wine can be scary. Especially if you're trying to handle yourself like a pro at a business dinner, or an elegant first date. There are a bunch of variables: varietals, regions, vintages, pairings, glasses... and that's just scratching the surface.

Lucky for us, we have the Internet. And there are wine people on said Internet who are approachable and passionate about what they do. The New York Times' Eric Asimov is one of those people. If you have time, scroll through his articles and you'll find some fascinating stuff. He's like an oenophilic archaeologist.

But if you're just starting out, Mr. Asimov has curated a guide called, practically, "How to Drink Wine." And he talks about all those variables we mentioned above. And he's not a snob about it, he's pretty nice.

Weather you're a newbie or have an Olympic gold medal in wine tasting, you should check it out. Everybody can learn something new!
