Learn how to hold a wine glass properly, how to select wine glasses, how to deal with wine at a restaurant, how to properly toast, how to select the best corkscrews, deal with screw caps, properly serve wines, and much more! Something for each oenophile out there! Learn how to handle the wine snob who happens to be sitting at your table or attending your event.
