WILL HYBRIDS BE THE FUTURE OF WINE?

WILL HYBRIDS BE THE FUTURE OF WINE?

Most of the quality wine produced in the major wine regions of the world use grapes from the species vitis vinifera. Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, and Malbec are varieties of vitis vinifera. When we think about the flavors, aromas, and mouthfeel of wine, it’s vitis vinifera that provides the standard model. It tastes good and grows well in temperate regions, especially where rainfall and humidity are moderate during summer and early fall and where winter temperatures are moderated by nearby bodies of water.

Wine on the Nile: Wine Goes to the Movies (and TV)

Wine on the Nile: Wine Goes to the Movies (and TV)

One of my pet peeves is wine’s lack of impact in popular culture. Celebrity chefs get lots of traction — even fictional cartoon rodent chefs (have you seen the Disney film Ratatouille?). Celebrity winemakers? Not so much.

Ask a Wine Pro: How Warm Can Wine Get Before It’s Ruined?

The average wine drinker likely thinks of storage temperature in a binary framework: Whites go in the fridge, while reds stay at room temperature. But just five degrees may be the difference between a spoiled bottle and a well-preserved one, and storing your wine outside the Goldilocks window could have adverse effects on taste and quality.

Time Changes

The old saying, "The more things change the more they stay the same," may apply in many areas of our 2022 daily lives, but I realized recently by walking through my wine cellar how it didn't really apply to wine.

It seems that if people aren’t eating or cooking with it, they’re drinking it

‘We asked dozens and dozens of people, “Do you have oil at home?” and every person said yes,’ explains Michael. But when they asked which brand was their favourite, nobody seemed to know. ‘It’s bonkers! It’s in your kitchen as a staple of your household and you pay less attention to it than anything else.’

Wine report card gets an ‘F’

In 2017, France implemented a nutrition labelling system called Nutri-Score.

Nutri-Score quantifies the potentially unhealthy factors of a given foodstuff (calories, saturated fatty acids, simple sugars, sodium) with the potentially healthy ones (protein, fibre, and fruits, vegetables, legumes, nuts and olive or nut oil), then compiles a score and assigns a category from A (healthiest) to E (least healthy) which is indicated on a multicoloured label on the front of the package.

WHY DO WE WANT OBJECTIVITY IN WINE CRITICISM?

WHY DO WE WANT OBJECTIVITY IN WINE CRITICISM?

The case for trying to achieve objectivity in wine tasting via blind tasting seems pretty straightforward.We want descriptions and evaluations to be about how the wine tastes, not extraneous factors such as price or reputation. The drinking public seems to expect wine critics to be consistent in their judgments over time, and when critics disagree about wine quality that disagreement is taken to be evidence that the critics really don’t know what they’re talking about.

Finland is a beer drinking country where craft ales are currently booming. Nearly half - 47% - of all alcohol consumed is beer, compared to just 19% for wine. But wine is fighting for its place. Petri Pellinen reports.

Why Your Favorite Bottle of Wine Can Help You Choose Your Next Favorite Olive Oil
19 April 2022 19:37
Why Your Favorite Bottle of Wine Can Help You Choose Your Next Favorite Olive Oil

Daniel Daou of Daou Vineyards in Paso Robles has a theory about the role phenolics, or micronutrients only found in plants, play in consistently highly rated vintages of wine. “Look at a good year versus a bad year in Bordeaux,” Daou says. “Same winemaker, chateau, and vineyard, but the conditions climatically are different. A good vintage is going to be darker, more structured, more aromatic. These factors are directly related to the quality of the wine.” Grapes and olives, just like any other plant, respond to their environment. Varying levels of sun, heat, water, and soil composition directly affect the quality of a vineyard or olive grove. The saying “we are what we eat” rings just as true for plants as it does for humans — which means that your favorite wine and olive oil have a lot more in common than you might realize.

Mannoproteins extracts from wine lees: characterisation and impact on wine properties

Mannoproteins extracts from wine lees: characterisation and impact on wine properties

Abstract

This study aims at exploiting an undervalued winemaking by-product, wine yeast lees, by developing efficient and food-grade methods for the extraction of yeast glycoproteins. These extracts were then supplemented to wine and their impact on wine properties assessed. White wine lees were produced by fermenting Sauvignon blanc grape juice with S. cerevisiae Uvaferm HPS strain. Three extraction methods were applied on lees using physical (autoclave and sonication) or enzymatic (Glucanex®, an industrial β-glucanases) approaches. Glycoproteins extracts were characterized by SEC-HPLC and SDS-PAGE. After their addition to wine (0.5 g/L), no alteration of wine clarity was detected.

Jancis Robinson Thinks We Need to Go Beyond Sustainability in Wine

As one of the most influential and prolific wine writers of the 21st century, it’s impossible to truly quantify Jancis Robinson’s impact on the industry. From editing “The Oxford Companion to Wine” to co-authoring “The World Atlas of Wine,” Robinson’s name is on the cover of some of the most widely used wine resources around the world, Nearly 40 years into a rich career of educating drinkers, serving on the Royal Household Wine Committee by advising the Queen’s cellar, and hosting several BBC programs, Robinson shows no signs of slowing down.

We spoke with the United Kingdom-based Master of Wine and four-time James Beard Award winner about her passion for sustainability, a topic that’s top of mind for producers, importers, and industry professionals alike; her favorite canned wines; and where she thinks the industry is heading.

From tractors to tanks, the price of winemaking equipment is skyrocketing

Unprecedented price increases for raw materials and energy are sending shock waves across the wine industry.

In a letter sent to the government on 12 April, France’s national federation for service companies and agricultural equipment distribution (SEDIMA) and the French association of industrial businesses in the agricultural equipment and agri-environment sector (Axema) anticipate a sharp decline in sales that will disrupt agricultural production.
