Just recently I went away for a long weekend to the Hunter Valley, and I paid a visit to three different types of wineries.

They were ones that grows grapes for red, then white and the last one was for sparkling wines.

There are certain qualities that you need to know whether a wine is good or not.

Do you know what they are?

In my opinion, all you need to know is whether you like the taste or not! Anything else is pfaff.
That is so true

I was watching a program about wine tasting last night. It said the taste of wine changes depending on the lighting. For example, a green or cool tint will make the wine taste fresh warm red tint will make it taste sweeter.

They also sound that cheaply massed produced red wine from Romania tastes better than expensive slow aged artisan wines from France and Italy, etc.
That probably depends on whether you are buying the wine in France or elsewhere..... there was a big legal case recently where several French vintners were being sued by American wine merchants as they had been selling what the French considered undrinkable rubbish to the Americans as some very expensive fancy wine..... and the Americans hadn't noticed! It only came to light through a whistle blower. The French do tend to keep the best for themselves and only send stuff they don't want abroad :)
That's interesting - it wasn't actually specifying French wine as not tasting good though, but showing how Romania make their wine taste so good while using mass production.
Do you have to know things? So that's what I've been doing wrong.
The most important thing is whether you like it or not. One important thing would be to find out what you can pair the food with. Salty foods generally do not work well with reds

Having an education of wine is not a joke. It makes for knowledge, & easier to choose a wine, suitable to ones' palate & delight in matching for food to be eaten.
We're blessed here for the many grape growing areas & resultant wines, which can stand against the rest most proudly.
