I try stuff all sorts of ways. Tastings, friend's houses, bars, pretty much everywhere. Bars get expensive, and to be honest, finding ones with good and well kept selections isn't that easy all the time. The better bet is to find a couple buddies who are enjoy trying stuff and just splitting a bottle. My friend's and I have a little group that buys rather expensive bottles and cracks them open together, we started off on cheaper stuff though. Now we have a pretty good idea about what we like and what is generally good (and more personal wealth haha) so we reserve our group buys for bigger ticket items.
Alternatively, find a reviewer who seems to have the same taste as you and buy some of the things he enjoys.
