Deep Dive with Learning Materials!
There are wine experts that have grown up with and dedicated their lives to the various crafts of wine. My background is in engineering and research. I will never make a claim to know more than any of these amazing wine experts, but my ability to research a topic thoroughly and present the absolute best highlights in its regard; now that is something I will tout about.
This Blog post is a living document! I'll keep it updated to the new materials that rise to the level of epicness worthy of talking about. Feel free to reach out to me at VeniViniAmici@Gmail.com to let me know of other media worth reviewing.
