Happy Hour: Start a Wine Journal

If you're looking for a great way to learn more about wine, consider investing in a wine journal. My sister gave me this lovely leather-bound journal ($30) by Chronicle Books for Christmas. Part resource and part journal, this book is organized by varietal. There's a section for recording reds, whites, and other wines. With places to note the color, clarity, aroma, and flavor, it's incredibly easy to fill in and follow. There's also space to remember fabulous food and wine pairings, wines worth saving, and trips to wineries. The pages are filled with grape definitions, pronunciations, and helpful hints on how to taste. When making note of each wine, there is a spot to write where and when you taste a specific wine.

It will be fun to look back in a year or two and think about these memorable experiences. Does anyone else keep a wine journal?

I have one that is hard cover. I use it when I find a wine that is distinct and great with food.

I love saving the label and putting it in a wine journal.

I picked up a free little wine guide at Central Market and in the back is a wine journal. I am very excited to start one and keep going into a real journal when I run out of room.
