When you get introduced to the world of wines, you usually get conversant with certain basics elements of wine. You learn about wine terms like Tannins, Acidity etc as also about things like how to hold a glass (from its stem), how to go about tasting a wine and in general about the wine etiquette.
Whereas all such wine knowledge enables us to enjoy the wine however quite often we get carried away and starts focusing more on the technical details rather than relishing the wine in the glass.
With some people, such wine behaviour becomes an obsession. They feels pride in displaying their wine knowledge by intelligent wine descriptions or even in wine mannerisms like sniffing and swirling the wine glass. This is acceptable if done within limits and with the right intention of appreciating the wine.
However, if such a personality trait leads anyone to look down upon other wine drinkers or if he or she endeavours to belittle others or try to make them feel inferior, then it surely raises a red flag with me.
And I react by keeping a safe distance from any such wine snob.
