Water is refreshing. Fruit juice is healthy. Soda can be tasty at times. But is there any drink superior to wine?

You can sip a glass of wine to relax at the end of a long day, or share a bottle with friends. A good glass of wine can be the perfect complement to a nice meal. And, of course, drinking wine on a date can help create a romantic mood.

You don’t have to be an expert to enjoy wine. But for some, only the very best will do. Hear Marni and Mason talk about drinking wine.

水可以提神。果汁有益健康。苏打水有时味道不错。但还有什么饮料能与葡萄酒相媲美?
你可以小酌一杯葡萄酒除去一天的疲劳,或者与朋友开怀畅饮。一杯上等的葡萄酒是佳肴的绝配。当然,约会时的葡萄酒可以营造浪漫气氛。
你不必成为品酒专家。但是某些人只喝最好的葡萄酒。听听玛尼和梅森如何讨论喝酒。

Marni:  Mason, do you enjoy wine?

Mason:  Yeah, I definitely like wine. But you know, I wouldn’t say I’m any sort of expert on it.

Marni:  Well, I’m certainly no expert either, but I do really enjoy it. I actually enjoy it a lot more than any other alcoholic beverage, preferably red wine. And I can tell the difference, but I don’t have like a really developed palate.

Mason:  Oh yeah? Have you ever done a wine tasting at a vineyard?

Marni:  I have. Actually, I’ve gone to several vineyards and talked to the wine makers and had wine tastings. But by the fourth vineyard, you’re just like, “Everything tastes great!”

Mason:  So you don’t do the drink and spit thing just for the flavor?

Marni:  I don’t really just sample. I drink.

Mason:  Yeah.

Marni:  Probably the problem there, huh?

Mason:  Do you find, like, it does something different to the experience when you get to either taste a lot back to back, or you have someone there explaining, like, where it came from and the process?

Marni:  I do enjoy all that information, because I think wine making itself is such a fascinating process that when the wine maker is there and they’re very passionate about it, I feel like I’m able to enjoy the experience more.

Marni asks Mason if he enjoys drinking wine. Mason says he likes wine, but he isn’t a wine expert.

Marni also likes wine. It is her favorite alcoholic beverage. She enjoys going to wine tastings and visiting vineyards. She likes to hear passionate wine makers talk about their work.

Even though she likes wine a lot, Marni says she isn’t an expert, either. She can’t always tell the difference between different types of wine, especially after she’s already had a couple glasses!

Do you enjoy drinking wine? Are you a wine “expert”?

I like wines mainly red wine, but I am not a expert because it’s necessary to study very hard this subject.


I love to drink wine with friends, boyfriend. The wine combines some kinds of cheese and cold weather. Unfortunately, my country is hot.

I am not a wine drinker but I occasionally drink it . It’s especially good at a celebrating occasion or on a date. It help people loose a bit and they won’t be so serious. However, I don’t drink wine or alcohol with whom I don’t know very well. It can be troublesome or even dangerous . Some people lose control and do stupid things after they get drunk. To avoid that , it’s better to drink wine with someone capable of controlling themselves.Wink
