oenophile (n.)
1930 (as an adjective 1900), probably from French oenophile, from Greek oinos "wine" (see wine (n.)) + -phile.

To drink wine like a true oenophile, you have to first inspect the color, then sniff it, then swish it around in your mouth. Once you've tasted all the oaky tannins and hints of red fruit, you can finally swallow. Oenophiles drink wine, discuss wine, keep wine in the cellar, and know which years produced the best wine. Don't confuse oenophiles with winos, another name for alcoholics who like cheap wine. Oenophiles prefer to savor the good stuff.

I’ve even traveled with an oenophile friend who was deeply knowledgeable about wine but had a curious predilection for strong aftershave.

This route is geared more towards serious bikers than tipple-in-the-saddle oenophiles, but promises a two-wheeled adventure from fields and farm stands to hopyards and vineyards.

My oenophile friends in France normally made recourse to the cheese board after consuming the appetizer and main meal.Drool

Mr. Theodore Alfred was hired by two restaurants
and a locally produced cooking show as their
preferred oenophile.

What is an Oenophile?



An oenophile is someone who loves and appreciates wine. Oinos is Greek for 'wine' and -phile means 'loving.' There are also a small number of wine lovers who refer to themselves as vinophiles, using the Latin term vino, which also means 'wine.' The term oenophile is most often used to describe a person who not only loves wine, but is also interested in knowing about the various nuances of the beverage. These can include which grapes were used and details about the vineyard where it was produced. Some view an oenophile as an expert connoisseur and a professional, whereas others have argued that one can be an amateur and enjoy wine as a hobby.

What separates an oenophile from the average wine drinker is a passion for wine itself. To such a person, drinking wine is an experience that is taken to a different level, since this kind of connoisseur notes the subtleties of the vintage and the actual wine-making process. Oenophiles can be either professional or a casual connoisseurs who enjoy studying wine as a hobby. Some work hard to gain the knowledge they need to manufacture wine, and to educate others. If a wine lover wishes to turn their appreciation of the beverage into a profession, there are schools that offer classes in various wine-related areas, like production and marketing.
