It's essential ...  
To get the most from wine, whether you are a keen wine lover, joining the trade, work in the hospitality industry or are progressing in your career ... you need to have a grounding in why wines taste how they do, which wine is best suited to any particular occasion and how to evaluate and judge different wines.
