You've Actually Been Pronouncing These Wine Names Wrong This Whole Time

By

I like to think of myself as a self-proclaimed "expert" when it comes to drinking wine.

But when it comes to pronouncing all the different types of wine correctly, well, that's another story.

Sometimes, spelling can be deceiving, especially if you're trying to figure out how to say something that's in a language you don't know how to speak.

Let's be real, there is nothing more humiliating than trying to sound like a cultured wine connoisseur as you commit the ultimate foodie faux pas and order a bottle of "bor-dox" in front of your date.

Remember when we showed you the right way to pronounce all those tricky fashion labels you never knew how to say?

Luckily, your days of butchering wine names will also become a thing of the past because we tracked down all those tricky wine names and paired them with their proper pronunciations.

Thanks to this speech guide, people might actually think you're a chic sommelier rather than gal who just likes to binge on boxed wine in her PJs every night.

Take a look at the pictures below to see the right way to pronounce all of your favorite wines.
