The Wine Style Wheel is a visual and
intuitive way to discover more than 120 of the most popular table wines. The strategy begins with what
you, the wine buff, already understand by using six “archetypal” wines and stylistic
descriptors, and grouping wines with similar characteristics.
The Wheel guides the user through wine
styles by focusing on flavour profile rather than grape variety or
region, and builds on the drinker's established knowledge and preferences. You
can “enter” the Wheel at any point. Start with one of the six basic wines,
or approach it from that wine’s Style Group or look for wines you already enjoy
to identify which group(s) you’re partial to. Most wine drinkers will
quickly pick one or two groups that contain the wines they most enjoy, and then
look for others to try in that group.
Whether you’re new to wine or a hardened
cellar rat, the Wheel will help you maximize your enjoyment and understanding
of wine while removing much of the guess work and minimizing disappointment by
consistently directing you to wines they are more likely to enjoy.
