Nifty wine links on TLC

Who would have thunk that TLC, cheesy channel documenting all varieties of heart-warming life changes, would have wine information galore on its website? First off, a beginner’s guide to how a wine cellar works, complete with links to additional articles, and quizzes about topics like the Champagne region. Then, a easy reference guide to the many grape varietals. I clicked on the tile about Chardonnay, and read a short and sweet article about where it originates, some facts, and a Q&A. It also linked me to another page featuring similar information articles about the world’s many wine making countries. Did you know that South Africa’s signature grape is Pinotage, used for medium and full-bodied wines? It’s a cross between Cinsault, a southern French grape known in the Cape as Hermitage, and Pinot Noir. Fascinating! Try out the Wine Basics Quiz or Wine Making Quiz. Très fun! And they also made me realize I need to brush up on my wine making knowledge.
