How-To: Use the Internet to Read a Wine Label

Old World wine labels can be confusing. Even if you understand the language, you still need basic knowledge of the historical wine regions to know what grape is being used. That's because most European labels simply give you the region name, but that alone is enough to indicate what types of grapes are grown there. Don't have that kind of knowledge? Just ask the internet. A search for any given region will turn up dozens of webpages (not to mention a Wikipedia entry) that list the most common grapes grown there. As long as you can figure out the region, let your smartphone to do the rest.
