  1. Which Wine Goes With Chocolate?

    Which Wine Goes With Chocolate?

    It's a common dilemma. Your wife has planned a special meal, and is determined to offer her famous Chocolate Truffle Surprise for desert. Or you are dining at a great restaurant, and you just have to try their renowned chocolate mousse. You want to carry on drinking wine through the desert course and on to the cheese, but, wine and...
  2. The Most Expensive Bottle of Wine Ever Sold

    The Most Expensive Bottle of Wine Ever Sold

    Interestingly, arguments rage as to what was actually the most expensive bottle of wine ever sold. You need to take account of inflation. There are private sales which are just rumored, of fabulous, near mythical wines which never reach the open market. Then of course, we need to make a distinction for size, and between red and white, and perhaps...
  3. The History of American Wine Making

    The History of American Wine Making

    The history of American wine making goes back to the very first settlers, who arrived to find that there were wild grapes growing which could make wine of a sort. In fact, it's possible that indigenous people were making wine long before this, but unfortunately we don't have any reliable records to prove that. The wine that was made from...
  4. The Importance of the Correct Serving Temperature for Wine

    The Importance of the Correct Serving Temperature for Wine

    There is a tendency among those who know no better to serve every kind of drink at as close to sub-zero temperatures as possible. What do you say to your dear friend who, when you arrive at their house for dinner, takes your proffered bottle of fine claret and declares, “Don”t worry, we'll put that straight in the fridge, it'll...

    Wine Mixed Drinks We Secretly Love

    We wine lovers can be a bit, well, snobbish! Or perhaps a politer way of describing us is, discerning. Not for us the $4.99 jug of alcoholic grape juice stacked up at the end of the supermarket aisle. No, we have refined palettes, educated tastes and we wouldn't dream of sullying our favorite indulgence. Actually, that's not true, is it...
  6. In The Mood For Wine? Chill Out

    In The Mood For Wine? Chill Out

    There is nothing more decadent than enjoying a glass of wine, paired perfectly with a scrumptious meal. Wine has an indescribable way of extricating the most subtle flavors from the cuisine you’re enjoying and from the spirits themselves. Traditionally, white wine is served chilled, whereas red wine is presented at room temperature. Red wines don’t typically fall under the umbrella...
  7. Best Wines for Fall Gifts

    Best Wines for Fall Gifts

    September is almost over, and fall has arrived. The leaves are turning, the days are getting shorter, and the temperatures are beginning to cool down. Soon, the holidays will be here; have you thought about what gifts you’ll be giving this season? It’s always a problem, albeit a fun one, to choose gifts for friends and family they’ll appreciate and...
  8. Buying Wine for Investment

    Buying Wine for Investment

    When you think of investing, wine is not the first thought that comes to mind. Most of us think of investments as stocks and bonds and not much else. There are alternative investments to the ones we typically put our money in; these are precious metals (gold, silver, copper), fine art (paintings, sculptures), and rare coins. Wine falls into the...
  9. How to Decide on Wine Storage

    How to Decide on Wine Storage

    If you're like most Americans, you don't know squat about wine. You know you like it, but you tend to just buy it when you’re ready to drink it. Storing wine, whether for the short or long term, never enters your thought processes. You may, however, find yourself getting more interested in keeping wine on hand. It beats running out...
