Secrets to a Cult Wine

Wines of this nature solve a problem, they do something magical that no other wine can. They make a believer out of you, they convert you, they cause you to fall in love with wine. For many fans, the wines presented here did such a thing. They took a non wine drinker, or a non-red wine person and turned them into a red wine loving passionate individual.
