Wine – a passion of it’s own

Wine is not just what we get bottled, sealed, marketed and sold. This is rather the result of an entire year.

The information of what happened during a whole wine year is stored in a bottle of wine and can be kept and preserved over many years.

And when you open it you get all the information of this very year. The information about the weather (was it sunny or rainy?), the region (cooler or hotter?), the ground (did the vine grew on fat or rather meager ground?) and how well did the winemaker in the vineyard and the cellar. And the result is a very complex mixture of alcohol, sugar, acidity, minerality and of course flavors and aromas.

Basically it is a simple product. We all know the grapes that can be bought in any supermarket. But the result is unbelievable broad with regards to these tastes, flavors, aromas and odors. Have you ever tried a wine that tastes like grapes? I haven’t.

Based on the taster’s olfactory senses (and of course depending on the wine) the description ranges from vanilla, lemons, grapes  over tobacco to such aromas as leather or horse sweat.

Try it out! Ideally with somebody who can help you by telling how to find the words and express the things that you taste and smell. It will be exiting
