Ending the Aesthetic Fallacy of Heavy Bottles

Wine producers the world over invest in unusually thick, heavy wine bottles for the sake of impressive brand aesthetics. But thanks to their weight, these bottles (and their transportation around the world) represent the single largest portion of the wine industry's carbon footprint and contribution to global warming.

To Attract More Drinkers, Wine Needs Clearer Labels

For all the hand-wringing among marketers about how to get Millennials and Generation Z more interested in wine, most wineries are still ignoring the most obvious, simple way to attract engaged consumers: clearer education and transparency through labeling.

Glassware Virtuoso Kurt Zalto Has Quietly Released His Masterpiece Wine Glass

There are certain traditions that happen when a nice bottle of wine is opened. The flick of a wine opener, the swirl of a decanter. Oenophiles ceremoniously pouring wine into their carefully cared for ‘good glasses’: pricey, whisper-thin glasses blown by hand.

Coravin Model Five/Six vs the Model Two

Coravin Model Five/Six vs the Model Two

I’ve been using the Coravin system profusely for a few years now. While I don’t own a wine bar or a winery (two of the best use cases), it serves me exceedingly well to taste samples without having to toss the bottles afterwards as well as aiding in blind tasting practice for myself or setting them up for others. I’ve written about the various uses at great length previously so I won’t get into it any deeper other than to say it’s a very useful little device for anyone from the top wine professionals through to the casual drinkers and everyone in between.

Riedel me this!

I have a guilty secret that I’ve been hiding from the wine world. No, it’s not a sneaking admiration for white Zinfandel, it’s far more embarrassing than that.

The choice of packaging for everyday wine is wider than ever. And more complicated. A considerably shorter version of this article attempting to shine a stronger light on the options is published by the Financial Times.

Glassware Stance: The Art of Smelling Wine

Something often overlooked in tasting books or even tasting classes is basic instruction on how best to pick up a glass of wine and, for lack of a better term, address it. Further, the value of discovering the best angle to hold the glass and smelling techniques to get the most out of a wine’s aromas is not often emphasized enough.

Alcohol on labels – how accurate?

Alcohol on labels – how accurate?

Alcohol may be what distinguishes wine from fruit juice, but many wine drinkers seem pretty wary of it these days. A recent global study by leading specialist researchers Wine Intelligence found that 40% of regular wine drinkers reported that they are actively seeking to moderate their alcohol consumption. But since hotter summers encourage the build-up of sugar in grapes, which yeast converts to ethanol, alcohol levels have been rising relentlessly. Wines of at least 14% alcohol by volume (abv) have become increasingly common.
