Wines of the Week: 4 Wine Myths DEBUNKED!

My Facebook LIVE "Wines of the Week" series continues with this show on Debunking Wine Myths. But these aren't just any wine myths. These are especially persistent ones that, despite the plethora of wine information out there, continue to circulate. In fact, I've heard ALL of today's featured myths in just the past few months. So I'm very happy to put them to bed once and for all BUT I really need YOUR help to do this.

One of my goals with this show as well as my blog, wine tasting events and podcast is to help you empower your palate and become more confident in the wines YOU personally enjoy. This includes helping to debunk vinous falsehoods by simply sharing what you know in a non-wine snobbish way.

So for that reason, I hope you enjoy today's show and feel empowered to help defeat these myths once and for all next time you encounter them.
