It's a little known fact that the best wine on the menu is always the second most expensive bottle. It's a better known fact that we know about ordering wine wouldn't fill the label.

Which is why we're thrilled by this beginner's guide to wine, courtesy of design agency datadial for Wine Investment. Covering everything from what constitutes a wine's terroir (not a dog) and colouring, to the perfect glass type and temperature for serving, this most civilised of graphics will give you the basic foundations for quaffing about good quaff.

There's also a helpful breakdown of wine aromas, equipping you with some wonderfully pretentious retorts for the next occasion someone asks you how the wine is.

We'll work our way through a few bottles and wait for the Pro's Guide to Wine. Click to enlarge.
