Developing a palate for wine...

focioncroci | Apr 10, 2009 07:25 PM

I grew up in a family where alcohol was never consumed (not for any religious reasons). Recently, I have found myself in company that drinks and enjoys wine, and I am completely ignorant about anything to do with wine! I don't particularly enjoy it, but I have been told it's for an acquired taste.

My question is, that if it is true that one would need to develop a palate for wine, what would be the best way to go about doing it? I mean, are there certain wines that one could start with...a "beginner's" wine, if you will? Heck, is this adage even true, or am I wasting my time trying to like something where my efforts will prove to be fruitless?
