Why Robert Parker is Like a Jedi Master of Wine

If there was a Yoda of wine, it would be Robert Parker. It not that he’s small, green and hairy. He isn’t. Nor talks in inverted syntax does he. Rather, Mr Parker is a hugely respected repository of wine knowledge, and his influence flows through the global industry like a mystical unseen force that changes the price of wine. A vineyard’s vintage lives or dies by that force. In fact as both he and his very influential newsletter, The Wine Advocate, are still affecting the prices of bottles with their reviews, it’s important to get acquainted with the man. The force is strong with this one. (more…)

Make your own vintage wine rack

Storing wine properly is of vital importance, but is often overlooked by wine lovers. It may seem trivial, but this stuff matters: The difference between storing your wine in a vintage wine rack and in your kitchen is vast. We aren’t all sitting on large cellars of old Château Margaux back vintages, but if you are in any way serious about the wine that you drink you should invest a little time (if not money) in a good storage solution. Unless you like drinking vinegar, you should store your wines properly, and one of the best ways to do that is with a vintage wine rack! (more…)

Why you should really own some Port wine glasses

Do you own any Port wine glasses? Many people don’t, but we think you should. Wine glasses come in all shapes and sizes, and with good reason: Individual wines have distinctive aromas and characteristics, and certain glasses are better at highlighting these than others. Of course, some wine glasses are more common than others. Cava and other sparkling wines are best enjoyed from Champagne flute glasses, whose thin design preserves the freshness of the bubbles for longer. Bordeaux wine glasses are great for Bordeaux and other full-bodied red wines. Port wine glasses are not quite so common, but we’d like to see that change! (more…)

Why Toro wines just taste better from a Toro glass

Toro wines are some of Spain’s most distinctive reds: Powerful, full-bodied and complex, with intense fruit flavours and grippy tannins. Mostly produced from the Tinta de Toro variety, known elsewhere as Tempranillo, the wines nonetheless have a character that is all their own. Toro wines have a unique profile that is entirely different from other big red wines like Bordeaux and Australian Shiraz. In order to make the most of this, sommeliers like to serve these wines in a special Toro glass. (more…)

Wine kits: Could they save you money?

We’ve spoken about wine kits before, and let’s just say that we have mixed feelings. For us, wine kits remove quite a lot of the romance inherent in a good bottle of wine: The best wines display a real sense of place, what the French call “terroir”. Wine kits do not offer anything of the sort. For us, wines made from kits will never live up to the real thing in terms of quality and authenticity, not to mention convenience (wine kits can be notoriously messy to operate). (more…)

Three good reasons to drink non alcoholic wine – honestly!

As a wine lover, it can be difficult to understand why anybody doesn’t drink wine. We’ve all got a friend or family member (or often more than one) that regularly trashes the very idea of wine: “It all tastes the same!”, “It’s too expensive!” or “It’s too pretentious!” are some of the cries that you can hear surprisingly often. Some say that wine gives them headaches or very bad hangovers, and as such they only drink a certain spirit or beer. (more…)

Does chocolate wine exist?

Wine is one of life’s great pleasures. Between the sight, the smell and the taste, a good glass of wine is a feast for the senses. Another such pleasure can be derived from chocolate. Milk chocolate, dark chocolate, white chocolate and everything in between: No doubt, chocolate can offer a little bite of heaven no matter what your taste preferences. It stands to reason, then, that if wine and chocolate both give pleasure, a combination of the two could be worth trying. (more…)
