College Guys Guide To Wine

Wine is a special thing to me. There is truly so many choices, I often find myself discovering new wines all the time. Wine has the most variations of all alcoholic beverages so really understanding its greatness could take some time. For college guys most of us hardly drink wine, if ever. Knowing your way around a good wine could bring a bit of spice to your life and impress the ladies. Here's the starters guide to good wine.

Barefoot White Zinfandel ($8)
Origin: United States

Americans love the barefoot brand. Usually for your first time drinking a wine as an American it is made by Barefoot or Yellowtail. White Zinfandel is one of the most famous among the brand and it is also delicious. Perfect start up wine. 

La Vieille Ferme Rouge ($9)
Origin: France

Don't be afraid of red wine. I run across people often who hate the taste of red wine and prefer the fruity taste usually associated  with white wine. Kick start your red win experience with this bottle right here, for 9 dollars this is as good as it gets.

Anything Yellowtail ($7-16)
Origin: United States

Like I said before about Barefoot, these two wine brands are staples in the average American consumers list. Honestly for a beginner you cant go wrong with any of them.

Bohemian Highway ($10)
Origin: United States

My affinity with red wine runs deep. Real deep. In my opinion the best kind of wine you will find is Merlot. For beginners Bohemian Highway makes a good Merlot  The taste of this wine for being under 15 dollars is special, this is something you must have.

Trapiche Oak Cask Malbec($15)
Origin: Argentina

If you want to taste a wine full of flavor for a reasonable price(under 15 dollars) this is very, very good.  The taste is rich and full of flavor, this is a must on your journey of wine.

Thank you, hope this has been helpful.
