Does the world of wine intimidate you because you feel that you don’t know much about it? And every time you go occasionally out with clients or friends you feel uncomfortable when it comes to choosing and drinking wine? Would going to a wine tasting be a real nightmare for you? Then relax. Take this free online test of 100 questions (the most detailed test you will find online!) and learn in an easy way the do’s and don’ts of wine etiquette.
