About

Thank you for taking the time to visit Basic Wine Knowledge!

I’m Michael, your guide to all things wine related.

This website was started back in 2008 by a friend, Lise.  In January 2017, Lise decided to give up working on the website because she was too busy with other projects. So I took over the website to keep it going!

Here’s what Lise has to say about starting this website:

“My husband and I have learned so much about wine over the years and want to share some of our knowledge and experience with you. Our love of all things wine began in earnest nearly 20 years ago when a good friend of ours suggested, very diplomatically I might add, there really was life beyond Two Buck Chuck.

That was the beginning of what continues to be a very enjoyable and insightful journey into the world of wine. We’ve tasted wines all over California (our home state), in Oregon’s Willamette Valley, in Tuscany, Italy, and in the French regions of Champagne and Burgundy (Bourgognes).”

Lise and her husband have contributed many articles that share their passion and knowledge for wine, and I hope to do the same!

Please feel free to contact me anytime with comments, questions and suggestions.

Don’t forget to bookmark us! 🙂
