Chuck Test – About Us

How No Snob Wine Began

Chuck and Sean met in 2007 while working at a technology company. They quickly figured out they both had a passion for food and wine and found themselves regularly talking about their latest experience.

They also share a deep joy in getting a good deal. This became somewhat of a competition of who could find the best bottle of wine at the lowest price. Friends and family took notice and would often ask for their best wine recommendations.

When we made recommendations to our friends and family we would ask typical questions about what they like and what they enjoyed in the past. In nearly all our discussions a clear theme was emerging and it sounded something like this…

  • I don’t know anything about wine
  • The words used to describe wine sound vague or confusing
  • I just want a good but inexpensive bottle

No Snob (Wine) was created in 2008 to help connect people with good wine at good prices. We made it our mission to use approachable language, realistic food pairings, and a pinch of humour to our readers.

What We Do & How We Do It

The What

We taste and rate wines that cost less than $20 on a 5 star scale. All the wines we taste and share on the site are purchased using our own money. If a wine is given to us for free we would note that in the review or post.

No Snob Wine accounts for human bias, which is not typical in wine world. Chuck and Sean are upfront about their biases and encourage our readers to understand them. In case you missed it Chuck leans toward old world while Sean leans toward new world wine making styles. It’s simple but it means a lot.

The How

  1. We taste each wine within minutes of opening it
  2. We do not read labels or descriptions before tasting
  3. The same size and shape of glass is used every time
  4. If the the first impression is poor we taste it again one hour after opening then again with food

5 Stars Explained

Here’s what is takes for a wine to be considered 5 star…

Correctness: Does the wine display the qualities you should expect from the grape it is made from. This includes colour, aroma, taste, mouth feel. Then the more fussy things like weight, balance, acid, tannins, alcohol, etc.

Punch above its weight: Does the wine “drink like” a more expensive wine. As in they could slap a higher price on the bottle and would still be a good deal.

Welcome Home:  Would I buy it again? The answer the must be a firm yes.

5 Star Consensus: Before handing out a 5 star review both Chuck and Sean must taste the wine and agree it’s a winner.
