Is wine typically an "acquired taste"?


I'm still rather young (though legal) and my experience with alcohol is very limited. I don't care for the bitter tastes. Yet I do wish I could enjoy a glass of wine with family at holiday dinners instead of sipping and making a 'Blegh!' face. Is it normal to take time to appreciate it? Is wine-drinking more common with mature age? Or was it instant love for you? Any tips on how to make the experience more pleasant?

    Excellent point. However one could say none of us would do anything if it didn't bring us some type of joy! More people probably drink soda because of the sugar in it. Coffee is an acquired taste for a lot of folks as well. :)

    I completely agree!

    That's why I said she may find some wines with lower point scores she likes or never find any wine she likes!

    Everything is a "guideline".

    Ultimately life is a (personal) journey.
