Wine Tasting

 
Wine Tasting Component I: Look The first step you have to undertake in wine tasting is visual. 1. Fill up the glass up to 1/3 of its volume; never fill it more than half; 2. Hold the glass by the stem. Initially you may find this too pretentious but there are good reasons for it: а) by doing it this way you can actually observe the wine in it; b) this will keep your fingerprints off the bowl; в) the heat from your palm will not change the temperature of the wine. There's a good saying by one of the greatest French wine lovers, Emil Painot: Offer someone a glass of wine and you can immediately tell whether he/she is a connoisseur by the way they hold the glass....

Wine Making and Home Brewing: Whats the Deal?

Why is wine making and home brewing such a 'taboo' subject if you may?...

How To Open Champagne

 
One such issue we've tackled over our forum's history has been the proper way to open champagne. Fortunately, we found the following tips by Dan Saltzstein in his piece[1] titled, Opening the Bottle. To give full credit to Mr. Saltzstein his tips are shared verbatim: ? Cut the foil (or "capsule") covering the cork, just below the bottom lip of the bottle's neck, and peel it off. Wipe the lip of the bottle. ? Insert the point of the screw into the cork, slightly off-center. ? Twist the screw all the way into the cork (don't go half-way or you're likely to end up with half a cork)....

For occasional enthusiasts, collectors and cellar owners, the essence of wine etiquette heightens the experience. Determine Proper Temperature Sparkling wines including champagnes require longer chilling of a few hours....

Australian Wines

 
Australia's wine industry has boomed in the past ten years. Employers have had to triple their staff numbers to cope with the demand for Aussie wine. Considering the lower average national population of Australia, compared to say the United States or even South Africa, 30,000 (2001) workers is pretty high. One of the main reasons for the demand on this skillful industry is that it has won an international reputation for quality and value. Australian wines have won many highly sought after international awards and labels and many innovative Australian winemakers are sought internationally for their wine making expertise....
