Wine in the blender—best aerator ever??

It’s ironic. We wine drinkers go through so much trouble to protect our wine all all costs from things like vibration, light exposure, temperature, etc. But then when we open the wine we go through all kinds of lengths to expose the wine to the very things we were moments ago trying to protect it from!

The Ultimate Visual Guide to Champagne and Sparkling Wine

by Anatoli Levine (Talk-A-Vino.com) for Winetracker.co

What is one type of wine a lot of people will be reaching for very shortly? If you said “champagne” – you are right. If you said “sparkling wine” – you are right too. As New Year rapidly approaching, one of the traditions of celebration is having a glass of “bubbly” with the toast to the health and happiness in the arriving year.

The Ratskeller in Bremen
by  Giles MacDonogh
www.macdonogh.co.uk

The stub of the ticket was still squashed between two pages (Club Class British Airways – those were the days), and here in the front of the book – Hanns Meyer’s Im guten Ratskeller zu Bremen – I have inscribed the date of purchase: 1 June 1996. From the pencil marks in its pages it is clear that an article was written on my return, but where that text might be now, I am at a loss to say.

The occasion was a treat, or rather a series of treats, in a time of myriad treats. I had been invited to Bremen to taste a ‘century’ of Continue reading What’s it like to drink the oldest drinkable wine in the world?
