Dang you must have been talking to my wife today. She just told me that I need to learn how to pronounce them and that we have cards showing how. Someone posted a site on here earlier last week that actually had a voice saying the names for you.

I think you mistook that one. That was Troy yesterday, but there were some good ones you missed.

I think it is good to know the better way of pronouncing all the names of wines and for me its a good read. I am somewhere finding difficulty in pronouncing some names of wines like-Chardonnay, Beaujolais, Gewurztramine etc. I know how it feels when somebody ask you the name of wine that you are serving and you dont know how to pronounce it well.
