vegan wine

In the last few decades being a vegetarian has gone from being an obscure dietary choice to a full-blown way of life. Despite its heightened status, the vegan path is still hindered by some missteps and absences. One such omission is the lack of a proper pairing standard for vegan meals and wine. Perhaps you’ll find something below that properly accents your favored main vegetable course.
For those looking for something in the way an early morning, healthy combination you’re options are somewhat limited. As it is a bad idea to drink anything too strong early in the day, you’d be wise to go with a Bordeaux as your wine choice. The sweet, buttery flavor of the Bordeaux nicely compliments either crunchy vegetable dishes or a fruit salad. The Bordeaux is best served chilled- be it done in a bucket of ice or simply poured into a cold glass. If an alternative is necessary, a cool sparkling wine can be more than acceptable. Sparkling wine and a fresh grapefruit in the morning is nothing short of Heaven personified.

A lunch-time vegan meal has a wider variety of options. Two of the most appealing wines for an afternoon meal are a Riesling or a Chardonnay. Their stronger flavor concentration and somewhat bitter aftertaste both are a pleasure up to midday. For a casual meal, the Chardonnay’s smokey, caramel flavor is an excellent partner to a Greek salad, veggie-dog, or veggie-burger. The Riesling’s crisp essence is best paired with a lettuce or cabbage based casserole or general dish.

A plate of carrot sticks with a side of ranch dressing can make for an excellent before-supper snack when paired with either sparkling wine or some nicely aged white wine. A vegetarian dinner can bring with it all manner of combinations. Some vegetarians absolutely swear by the combination of either tofu or greens based recipes and a Merlot. Feel free to savor the roasted Merlot flavor as you dine on eggplant stew- another popular combination.

Dessert or an after dinner snack can be difficult to nicely pair. A small glass of warm red wine makes a dish of ice cream delish. Of course, a simple tray of nuts or sweet corn fits nicely with a glass of Chardonnay. One fantastic pairing is a bowl of strawberries and Champagne. Someone looking for a more filling late-night snack will likely be pleased to have a stalk of celery with peanut butter and a cool glass of Riesling. Make sure to experiment as everyone has different tastes and will likely prefer something all their own.

Valentine’s Day is fast approaching and now is the time to begin planning the ultimate celebration to share with that special someone. Some of us appreciate receiving an expression of love through cards, flowers, and candy.

italy wine

Italy is famous for many things especially for its wine. It is not unusual to find wines of distinct flavors and quality in Italy; it can be similarly compared to the popularity gained by of coffee and tea to some parts of the world.
Italy has flourishing, hill areas where the finest grapes are cultivated and hand-picked in season. Thus, experts consider Italian wines to be included in the best wines all over the world. There are twenty regions in Italy, further subdivided into 103 provinces and there are several varieties of wine to choose from.

Grapes were introduced by the Phoenicians to Mediterranean civilization during the ancient times. Wine became one of the most valuable goods that have been traded all throughout Italy and Europe as Italian tribes succeeded in cultivating grapes and making wine. Because of this, Italy was considered as the “Land of Wine” due to the suitable grape-cultivating areas where sunshine and mountain air currents are just ad.

Italy became well known for its wine because of the variation in style, flavor and color of every wine made.

The most popular red grape variety commonly seen in central Italy is Sangiovese. As the second most planted variety of grape in the world, Trebbiano, which also known as Ugni Blanc creates more wine compared to other types of grape.

Even though Italians were not the first inventors of wine, they have succeeded in wine production because of their sincere passion for manufacturing it. Nowadays, Italy holds wine as priceless possession, producing more and more distinct wines without degrading the quality for so many years. They have maintained their name in the industry of wine making, producing as much as 8 billion bottles of wine every year. Light wines, table wines, and after dinner wines: name it and you’ll surely find wide selections of Italian wines.

Wine bottle

You can learn a lot from a bottle. Since wine is very much about tradition, time honored bottle styles offer clues as to what’s inside without even reading the label. By knowing basic bottle shapes, you can give a pretty good guess as to where the wine is from and what grapes are contained within. The following guide was created to offer a glimpse into the world of glass bottles as a way to understand their form, function, and aesthetics.

Why Glass Bottles?

For centuries, glass has been the reigning king of wine storage. Yes, wine is stored in wooden casks as a way to impart flavor and extend aging-but the bottle is how most of us enjoy the fruit of the vine.

As a beautiful, versatile and inert material, glass offers a blend of practicality and beauty befitting this beverage. In terms of beauty, glass offers style and a wide range of personality. It can be clear or opaque. Various colors are used to designate specific types of wines, regions of production, and even the style (i.e. degree of sweetness in German wines). Glass imparts and transfers no volatile compounds and does not react with acid, so it is a sensible choice when flavor is of the essence. It can be also be easily sealed, stored, and displayed.

Thousands of years ago, wine was stored in earthen and ceramic casks-or even in animal hide. These ancient vessels transferred flavor and rendered the wine suspect to oxidation and contamination. With the rise of the Roman Empire came the introduction of glass blowing technology. It was hard to create uniform shapes, sizes, and these bottles (like the ceramic casks of days past) were difficult to seal and age. It wasn’t until the 19th century and the rise of the industrial revolution that the craft of bottle making was made more uniform and standardized. These days the standard size bottle is 750 milliliters (approximately 25 fluid ounces) which makes it easy for producers across all nations to sell and trade wine with ease.

The most common bottle styles are:

This style of bottle has straight sides and tall, pronounced shoulders. These bottles are typically deep green for the dry red wines of the region. The Bordeaux style red wines (blends of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Malbec, and Petit Verdot) are deep, rich, and typically require long aging. The shape of the bottle actually serves a purpose during the aging process, as the angle serves to block sediment as you serve the wine. Dry whites (typically Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon) are bottled in lighter green or clear glass while the sweet whites (such as Sauternes) use clear glass to show off the deep honey hue of these prized wines.

In other countries, this bottle shape is used for the Bordeaux varietals, Zinfandel, Super-Tuscans (Sangiovese blended with Cabernet Sauvignon), and sometimes Shiraz. Since there are no real rules governing this, wine producers are free to put whatever wine they want in this style of bottle-but chances are pretty good that it will fall in line with the above guidelines.

Sloping shoulders are typical of wines from Burgundy, with all red and most white wines coming in similar green glass. In Burgundy, these bottles hold Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. The exception is wine made from the Gamay grape which sometimes comes in clear glass when produced as Beaujolais Nouveau. Since this wine is meant to be consumed young, there is no need for tinted glass to block sunlight.

This shape is also widely used throughout the rest of the world for Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. This style of bottle is very similar to the Rhône style bottles. These are differentiated by an embossed coat of arms or similar insignia on the neck and a slightly less stout girth.

Champagne/Sparkling wine:
This bottle design combines beautiful form and function. Thick glass keeps the bottle from shattering from the intense pressure of the interior bubbly while the pronounced punt (the indentation on the underside) adds structural stability so that the bottom doesn’t blow out. An empty bottle will weigh 50% more than your average bottle, pointing to the heft of this style. It’s worth it though, because nobody wants to risk a case full of broken champagne bottles.

Germany and Alsace:
These German style bottles are slender, narrow, and taller than most every other bottle type. This style can either be green (common for the Mosel in Germany or Alsace in France). Depending on the designation on the label, these white wines can be very sweet (some would say syrupy) to dry. This depends on when the grapes where harvested and how the wine itself was fermented and aged. These wines are typically Riesling and sometimes Pinot Gris or Gewurztraminer.

Fortified wines:
Port, Marsala, Madeira and Sherry are all highly alcoholic and suitable for aging. These heavy, dark brown or green bottles are extra sturdy so that they can be aged and transported with ease. Many are even fully opaque. A slight bulge in the neck helps block sediment during service. These bottles typically had a slightly different cork style that allows for resealing.
