It's difficult to hear the difference between "vin" and "vinen"! Any tips for discerning this subtle difference?

vinen is pronounced with a slightly longer n, like vin'n. The difference might be subtle, but this is clear to native, so I guess you'll just have to try and learn this yourself.

'Vin' is "(a) wine" and 'Vinen' is specifically for "the wine"
