I'm dating a new guy and he doesn't drink wine. Let's assume that breaking up with him on the spot isn't my first choice. He's willing to try for me, though. Are there good "starter" wines for people? –Training Wheels

I’m going to assume you don’t want this guy to drink wine just to appease you; you want him to really like it as much as you do. You’ll need to first come to terms with the fact that that might not happen—that he may never get your level of enjoyment from the beverage. Perhaps there’s a category of food or drink that you never acquired a taste for. Oysters? Offal? What’s the likelihood of your coming around to it? That’s a good way to put the situation in perspective. But as I’m sure you know, there’s nothing like the shared experience of a great bottle, and it’s great that he wants to try.
