Learning a new skill (especially the older/wiser we get) can be scary.

What if the person on the other side of the counter laughs at me? What AM I supposed to be actually doing here?
Many of our classes focus on how to taste wine from a technical standpoint. But, Kat covered the basics of wine tasting for the Idaho Press in October. This is a quick guide for those getting ready to hit the tasting rooms this fall!
