I know that no matter how much I know, there’s always a ton more to know and the second I know it, it’s probably going to change. And so there’s always something to keep you engaged and excited about that, and when you realize that, that is the most powerful part of all of it. … Wine is ever changing, it’s expanding, it’s growing, it’s getting bigger, deeper, it’s just a very dynamic industry and to me that’s the piece that keeps it exciting and keeps it so interesting.
That’s Andrew McNamara, director of Fine Wine for Premier Beverage in Florida and the Chairman of the Court of Master Sommeliers, Americas, as told to Levi Dalton in “I’ll Drink To That! Episode 317.”
I can’t stress enough how much wine is an intellectual pursuit for me, more than anything else. One of my wine mantras from day one has always been: The more you learn about wine, the less you actually know.
I know I’m not alone in that thinking as many of my wine friends say the same thing.
But it’s still comforting to hear that a leader of one of the premier wine education institutions is also passionate about wine for that very reason.
