Fine wine, prized since the days of ancient Greece and Rome for its rich and subtle variations in flavour and bouquet, it can also be a good investment, and has the ability to improve over time while being kept in storage. You don’t need to be a connoisseur to begin trying your hand at selling wine, although a level of interest in wine is essential. An understanding of the basic principles will be enough to get you started, and we’ll try to outline a few of those principles here.
Spring is here! I know I might have said it before, and keep saying it, but with that, I feel compelled this week to bring you my wine knowledge. No, I am not here to tell you how to drink and taste your wine. I am here to show you what this season has to offer for your lovely sunny days out on the patio, the warmer nights and maybe even some post-farmers market unwinding. Here are my favourite wines for this spring. Cheers!
Who says you have to wait for a special occasion to have some delicious bubbly? If you ask me, the bubbles might just be the best wine in the world. For that reason alone, one should make an occasion to enjoy a flute of such delicious-ness, no matter the day. In just a few days will be the arrival of spring! Get a bottle! And as that will mark almost the end of September, before we know it, the holidays are here and we will need some bottles of the stuff for dinner parties and other celebrations. So you might as well get a preview and find your favorites now, even stock up. I have just a few suggestions here for you.
Every once in a while, and sometimes more often so than this, we crave a little Asian cuisine.
Once we have had a great stir fry with the tender meats, spices and crunchy vegetables or the warmth of a coconut curry on a chilly day, the warm spice of masala marinated meats with basmati rice, we cannot seem to help ourselves going back to these multi-layered and satisfying dishes. All of this is wonderful and what wines can you pair these dishes with? Or at least, what are the types of wines that go best with this food?
