Welcome Reader,

You're here! Hooray. That means you've taken the scary and exciting first step into the world of wine.

I know it seems intimidating, but I promise that things will start to become clearer soon.

My favorite thing about wine lovers, like me and you, is that we all self-select into learning more about wine. For some reason, we chose to dive deep and discover more about this delicious fermented grape juice.

Over the next few days, I'll send you some of my favorite wine resources including videos, podcasts, books and more. Plus, you'll get weekly updates about my upcoming book.

But first of all, I like to ask every wine lover I meet:

What got you into wine? Was it a particular moment, wine or experience?

I fell hard for wine on my first trip to Napa. But enough about me...

I'd love to know more about your journey, so please reply to this email and tell me your story with wine.

Looking forward to hearing from you,

Brian McCann

It didn't matter, because we had Champagne. It's one of life's greatest pleasures. So today, I'm bubbling over about all things Champagne. Speaking of bubbles, one of my favorite facts from the Wine Bible is that an open bottle of Champagne contains 100 million bubbles. This is according to bubble researcher Gérard...

Find your wine drinking buddy 🥂 Wine—like most things in life—is better with somebody else. In order to grow your wine learning, you need to grow your wine tribe. The key ingredient: someone even more obsessed with wine learning than you. I was fortunate to have so many people who helped me along the way. Today, I call on another mountain metaphor: skiing and how learning something foreign is a perfect parallel for wine learning. ---> And quick note on the new format I wanted to add more...
