Raise your hand if you feel the same ...
So, why don't you ... go to a wine tasting.
Oftentimes, wine shops will have cheap (or even free) wine tastings to promote certain kinds of vinos. I know the one near my apartment has one every Tuesday night and another one nearby hosts them on Wednesday evenings (I feel like I should mention that I do not go to these every week), and both are free. Of course, the person conducting the tasting will try to get us to buy a bottle, and if we both really love it then we'll occasionally splurge, but I never let myself feel obligated.
They only last about thirty minutes, usually nothing fancy. But they're informational (we found our favorite wine this way!) and fun.
If you're not sure where to start looking for wine tastings, I really like the website Local Wine Events because you can plug in your zip code (and I search for "free") and find out what wine events are going on in your area.
Have you ever done a wine tasting?
