There are many types of wines, which can be intimidating to the unacquainted. Here is a primer on four of the most popular wines.

1. Pinot Grigio – Dry and easy to drink, this is often light and fruity wine with a 10 to 12.5% ABV. Italian, Austrian, and German versions are usually produced in stainless-steel tanks and pair well with fish, chicken, and shellfish.

2. Chardonnay – Made from the most planted grape in the world, chardonnay wine can be produced in two different ways. Chardonnays are aged in oak tend to taste more buttery while chardonnays produced in stainless steel are crisper and cleaner. For the oaky chardonnays, look to Northern Burgundy, California, and South America.

3. Pinot Noir – Fruitier and softer than other red wines, Pinot Noir is a crowd favorite. The flavors can range from spicy horseradish to a more earthy mushroom.

4. Cabernet Sauvignon – Found in nearly every wine-growing region in the world, especially Napa and Bordeaux, this is the most popular red wine and pairs well with red meat. For a lighter taste, try a Meritage, which blends two or more Bordeaux grapes.

Reading is something many people enjoy, but sometimes it can be hard to find the time to read. If you have ever found yourself thinking you should read more but never do, these three tips will help you reach that goal.

1. Read what you love. Stick to topics and genres you are interested in so that you actually enjoy reading regularly. Once reading regularly becomes a normal part of your life, then you can think about branching out into new territory.

2. Give up on bad books. If you pick up a book and it doesn’t engage you, move on. There is no need to force yourself to finish a book you are not enjoying. Instead of viewing this as a failure to see things through, look at it as another chance to find a book you do like.

3. Keep your book with you. This can be especially helpful if you have trouble finding the time to read. With your book always at hand, every moment of downtime is an opportunity to get some reading done. When you have a few moments free at work, pull out your book. While you wait for an appointment, read.
