Wine tasting and the sky is falling

I just took my midterm, which went well. Afterwards we went wine tasting. We went to Cafe di Perugia. The Italian man who worked there taught us the history of wine, where what kinds come from and how to taste them. We tried a white, a red and a sweet "frizzante" wine. I will give you a little knowledge about wine tasting.

First: Look at the color. Put it against a white napkin and under a light. The color will help you determine the age.
Second: Swirl to the left and then to the right. This releases the scent.
Third: Smell the wine. Close your eyes and see how long the scent stays with you and what different scents there are.
Fourth: Take a small sip and swish it around in your mouth. This gets any other taste out of your mouth.
Finally: Drink and enjoy.

It is currently pouring outside. I have never seen it like this before. The thunder struck so hard it made a car alarm go off outside the window. I plan on making my way back to the apartment soon and staying and studying for the night. I have my Renaissance Art midterm tomorrow and there is a lot of stuff to know. I have to be able to identify a work of art by name, when it was made, where it is, and who made it and then be able to analyze and compare with other works of art.
