Have you ever wanted to learn more about wine but never made the time for it? Do you suddenly find yourself with some extra time on your hands? Or do you feel like you could use some distraction from work and the news?
In this article, we are going to round up some free resources you can use to learn more about wine and take your mind off of whatever may be troubling you. Spend five minutes, ten minutes, thirty minutes a day, whatever you want and learn some new things.
1. Wine Folly
Wine Folly is a great resource that talks all about wine. They don’t focus only on natural wine, but the breadth and depth of information they provide, especially visually, is wonderful. They also have a Wine 101 beginner’s guide that will walk you through the basics of wine step-by-step. You can sign up for their newsletter and also follow them on Instagram for quick little snapshots into their resources.
2. edX World of Wine E-Course
There is a free wine e-course available through edX from the University of Adelaide. You can take this free class live starting today! In this course, you will learn about the way wine is grown, how that affects the taste, and how to identify and describe the attributes of wine that you’re drinking, among many other things! This is a great option if you want a little more accountability than just browsing a website, but with no pressure to get a certain grade.
3. Wine Enthusiast
Wine Enthusiast has a basic one-page beginner article that goes through the key features that you should think about with wine. Wine Enthusiast also has a lot of articles and recipes with interesting content that you can get lost in. They even have a beginner guide all about natural wine that you can check out too.

5. Bliss Wine Imports Blog
Finally, we have to give a plug to our own blog. We work to post at least one new blog per week about natural wine and healthy living. You can sign up for our newsletter to keep updated on what’s going on with us and on our blog. You can watch a video about when we got stuck in the mud on our way to a vineyard and had to get towed out by the winemaker, how we tasted 1000 wines, and learn about what natural farming means for winemakers.
