An interesting question poised on an Instagram story by wordonthegrapevine
I can’t really give a specific answer beyond “because I do!” Yes, I appreciate the different flavours that you find in wine and that this all comes seemingly from a single ingredient – grapes. I can also say that’s why I like coffee because, like wine, I marvel at the different flavours you can get out of good coffee – raspberry, bubble-gum and jasmine in the cup by the side of me as I type this!
It could be I appreciate the craft and skill that has gone into the making of the wine but then I appreciate the same when I drink craft beers. It could be the stories and personal memories linked to the wine but again eating something straight from the garden also has similar emotions.
I can’t yet say why I singularly like wine – ie what unique aspect makes me like wine as opposed to other taste experiences. I may be alone in this but it would be good to see what the Community’s answers are to the question: Why do you love wine?
