The Race To Bring Alcohol To Space

NASA’s weekend collab with SpaceX sent two American astronauts to the International Space Station (ISS) and focused international attention on a revived space race and the adding space tourism industry. However, while seeing what spring is like on Jupiter and Mars, one might want to drink the wine. Enter a new race, the drive to bring booze to space.

The importance of wine labels in the time of COVID-19

With much of the world under lockdown due to COVID-19, many people are hesitant to spend any unnecessary time in stores (assuming they are allowed to leave their homes at all). These include wine drinkers faced with an abundance of choice when selecting a bottle to enjoy with yet another dinner at home.

Will Coronavirus Kill Off South Africa’s Wine Industry?

Will Coronavirus Kill Off South Africa’s Wine Industry?

With Zoom happy hours, “quarantinis” and off-licences clearing their shelves, much was made of our increased passion for alcohol during lockdown. But while in-home drinking in Britain and the US did rise during the darkest days of the pandemic, alcohol sales declined overall for that period–understandable, as the bottom dropped out of the restaurant and hospitality sector. Wine sales worldwide have fallen as a consequence of coronavirus.

Ethanol the warning signal for berry shrivel?

Ethanol the warning signal for berry shrivel?

Sensors for volatile ethanol are being trialled both in the laboratory and in the vineyard to determine if they can detect the onset of berry cell death.

The innovative trial is part of a larger project supported by Wine Australia investigating the causes, consequences and control of cell death in grape berries.

‘We have found that ethanol is released from grape berries when they become oxygen stressed. So, being able to tell when cell death begins would be a useful tool in monitoring berry health and fruit ripening potential’, said lead researcher Professor Stephen Tyerman, from the University of Adelaide’s School of Agriculture, Food and Wine said.

Cell death – and consequently berry shrivel – is a major problem for growers. It occurs when berries suddenly lose weight during the late ripening stage and is attributed to dehydration and loss of berry cell vitality.

Historic Geographical Classifications for Cava

Historic Geographical Classifications for Cava

As just about everyone knows, the wineries that elaborate Spain’s prominent sparkling wine, Cava, are distributed all over the country. Although the vast majority of these producers are located in the Catalonia region in the northeast corner of the country, there are several dozen others located in various other regions, some as far as 950 kilometres distant from the recognized Cava Capital, Sant Sadurní d’ Anoia near Barcelona. Such is the case of the five wineries located in Almendralejo, Badajoz in the southwest corner of Spain, not too far from the border with Portugal.

Wine Antioxidants: A Greater Perspective

Wine antioxidants: we keep hearing about how they’re good for us. For instance, a glass of red wine at dinner, “for the antioxidants.” It feels a little like “medicinal whiskey.” Is this yet another snake oil cure?

So, should we care about wine antioxidants? And, how do antioxidants help us with our health? To answer that question, you’ve got to start from the beginning.

Crisis voor wijnproducenten?

Crisis voor wijnproducenten?

De Europese Commissie heeft een aanvullend pakket buitengewone maatregelen bedacht voor de noodlijdende wijnindustrie. Volgens de EU is de wijnsector een van de zwaarst getroffenen in de agrifood-industrie. Dat komt door de massale sluiting van de horeca. Het thuisverbruik heeft dat niet gecompenseerd. De maatregelen komen bovenop het al bestaande steunpakket. Als een van de redenen wordt genoemd dat de omvang van de crisis in de EU en wereldwijd nog niet duidelijk is.

De wjnsector is het zwaarst getroffen.
Ik lees het maar begrijp het toch niet helemaal of eigenlijk helemaal niet.
Wijn is geen bederfelijke waar, dat blijft wel een jaartje (of meer) goed.
De landbouwsector die wel bederfelijke waar produceert en niet kwijt kan is toch per definitie zwaarder getroffen?
Of geldt ook hier weer zij die het hardste misère roepen krijgen automatisch de meeste steun?

Does the Mediterranean diet protect against rheumatoid arthritis?

Previous research has demonstrated a variety of health benefits associated with the Mediterranean diet, which is rich in olive oil, cereals, fruit and vegetables, fish, and a moderate amount of dairy, meat, and wine. Now results from an analysis published in Arthritis & Rheumatology suggest that the diet may also help prevent rheumatoid arthritis in individuals who smoke or used to smoke.

Alcohol and your brain: study finds even moderate drinking is damaging

It’s a well-known fact that drinking too much alcohol can have a serious impact on your health, including damaging your liver. But how much is too much? For conditions such as liver cirrhosis, that’s usually more than 21 units of alcohol a week – around two bottles of wine a week or one and a half pints of beer a day. The UK’s Chief Medical Officer recommends that adults don’t drink more than 14 units of alcohol a week to keep the risk of health problems low.
