There was a time when wine was just something you sat down and enjoyed with dinner or during a quiet evening with a friend.
Not anymore. Once the providence of only a cultured few and only with the best of the best, wine today is enjoyed by practically everybody, everywhere, anytime, and by all levels of society. Not only that, but wine lovers are not just picking up their wine at the market, or the liquor store. Wine lovers-from the most finicky to the most ordinary Joes-are going where their favourite varietals are produced, and wine tours that prove that half the fun of enjoying wine is traveling to where it can be enjoyed where it was produced.
