Wine has become one of the world’s most valuable and enduring cultural exports.
It is also one of our most misunderstood.
We love it, but how much do we really know about it?
This is the topic that inspired this month’s column, “How Much Does Wine Cost?”
This is a guest column by Wine Spectator Editor and wine critic Matt DeHart.
It originally appeared in the November 2017 issue of Wine Spector magazine.

His books include Wine Spectating: What to Expect from Wine Specters’ Best of 2017.

The Story of Wine.
