Posted: Jan. 03, 2013

The world of wine has a reputation for being pretentious, and the variables that make it a complex creation can pose an intimidating barrier to those who perhaps consider themselves less studious, but like to drink it nevertheless. It’s a predicament Wine Channel TV Founder Jess Altieri has set out to address. A Certified Sommelier and TV personality, she’s on a mission to make wine sensible, understandable and fun for the masses.

Do you have a preference for how you purchase your wine? Robin Salls’ adventure in wine started many years ago with trips to the liquor store to get Bartles & James Wine coolers, then Fetzer chardonnay or whatever else was on sale. When she finally decided to get serious about her love of wine, she knew she had to find a better way to pique her palate. For her, that meant looking into wine auctions or wine clubs. Here’s Robin’s guide for finding the right wine club for you.

There’s nothing quite like the sound of a popping champagne bottle, especially at midnight on New Year’s Eve. While some may have put off shopping for their bubbles to bring in the New Year due to the Aztec calendar, WineTable writer Robin Salls was on a mission to taste as many as she could, just in case. Now here's the results of her tasting spree. What corks will you be popping for New Year's?

Wine over the decades has become a passion and lifestyle for many women, as we see women exploring the world of wine beyond consumerism. While women have become the main purchasers of wine in American households, they are taking more prominent positions within the industry as well.

'Tis the season for sharing cheer and libations with family and friends, but it can be overwhelming to think about finding the perfect wine for each. Stress no more, this wine gifting guide offers tips to help you select. What's on your list?

A port wine brings to mind roaring fires, decadent chocolate desserts and late nights. I’ve found by way of my friends and friends of friends that most seem to have either a love affair with ports or they’ve given port the “Dear John” letter and have moved on. I’m in the early stages of my relationship with port. By no means is a love affair taking place, but port and I are still feeling each other out, trying to decide if we’re a match or not.

What would a Thanksgiving dinner be without a piece of pumpkin pie to finish off the meal?
