The alcohol indicator

My wine tasting notes database began in 2004 and now contains descriptions of 31,224 wines. It is a simple matter to pick a category such as a grape variety, vintage or region and get an average price, average residual sugar, average score or average alcohol.

Superbug Syrah?: Can bacteria express resistance to the antimicrobial activity of wine? And how does it compare with antibiotic resistance in medicine?

One of the reported health benefits of wine is its antibacterial/antimicrobial properties. It is not completely understood exactly how wine functions in this manner, specifically which components of wine act as the microbial agents and how exactly do they do it. Is the antimicrobial mechanism of wine similar or different to medical antibiotics? With medical antibiotics, it is known that over time some bacteria can develop a resistance to it, and thus the medication stops working for the patient. What about wine? Can bacteria become resistant to wine over time?

Long Read: Covid and Phylloxera – lessons for the wine trade

Sam Hellyer, head of wine and spirits at Chiswick Auctions, counts 10 years at Oddbins as part of a varied résumé where he headed up the Fine Wine branch in Oxford.

Here, he looks at the similarities of Covid-19 and Phylloxera. Though these two diseases sit over 100 years apart, they have had had almost immeasurable impacts on the wine trade, not least because of the gregarious nature of wine, with the sharing of people, ideas and techniques key to health and longevity.

French winemakers want priority status for Covid-19 vaccinations

French winemakers want priority status for Covid-19 vaccinations

Since Covid-19 upended the world a year ago, there are still many unknown aspects of the disease, but there is one certainty: “We now know that the olfactory system is affected by this particular coronavirus”, explained Dr. Pierre Bonfils, who heads the ENT department of the Georges European Hospital, during a video press conference of the French oenologists’ association on March 10. The issue can involve loss of smell (anosmia) and taste (ageusia), or a decrease in the quality of smell (hyposmia) and distorted olfactory perception (parosmia), “and for us as oenologists, or “wine musicians”, it is comparable to losing our musical instruments. The nose and mouth are essential organs in our profession”, warned Didier Fages, chair of the association (UŒF).

Adapt or die: Wine exporters brew solutions to the oversupply headache

Adverse weather, Covid-related delays and a worldwide container shortage are just some of the many headaches faced by South Africa’s wine export industry.

First published in the Daily Maverick 168 weekly newspaper.

Problems at the Cape Town Container Terminal are putting exporters under strain, with wine stock building up. The current estimate of overstocked wine is between 250 and 300 million litres, says Yvette van der Merwe, executive manager of South Africa Wine Industry Information and Systems.

Wine Prevents Dementia, But Scientists Aren’t Sure Why

We love a good study on aging and wine (or coffee). Mostly we love wine, but finding research that supports that love is always reassuring.
