5 Best Wines for Beginners by Chastity Valdes
Wine doesn't have to intimidate newcomers. Learning about wine is not complicated, but what matters most is enjoying it. Therefore, the process of discovering wine should include finding the tastes, wine types, and aromas that you personally like. I decided to blog about wines for beginners, thinking that this is something very useful and that you might appreciate it.
Why Natural Wine Should Be Your Drink of Choice
What do natural wine and punk music have in common? They both fought against the norm. Whilst the late 70s era of overly technical prog-rock was being viscerally assaulted by the raw energy of punk, a group of 4 rebellious winemaker friends in Beaujolais, France were raging against the machine in their own way.
Why Marketing “Healthier” Wines to Consumers is a Hit Today
Ah, the consumer product that is an oxymoron! They seem to keep popping up in the product categories that are considered to be - overall - unhealthy and even vices. Who can forget the “safe cigarette”...
Wine Subscriptions You're Missing out On
What seems like only a few years ago, consumers would buy their alcohol from grocery or liquor stores. Now, it seems as though subscription services (more than we’d like to admit) have changed our everyday lives, broadened our educational horizons, or just flat out emptied our bank accounts. The good news is that these subscriptions can account for every hobby, indulgence, or miscellaneous activity. Whether it’s grocery shopping, meal deliveries, or non-essential 'necessities' to through the endless pandemic, just about everyone has proved that joining a subscription does in fact make their life a little bit easier.
Consumers are in Denial with the Lack of Nutrition Labels on Alcoholic Beverages
Health-conscious consumers have been looking at product labels for years, attempting to avoid sugar, carbohydrates, fats, and high-calorie foods at all costs. While this is nothing new for society, the hype of ‘healthy drinking’ is making its way to alcoholic beverages. While we may still see the occasional keg stand and shotgunning of beers, it seems that millennials have healthier alcoholic beverages in hand and are turning the market when it comes to choosing a better-for-you alternative.
Wine Club Offer Members Discounts in Rutherglen
A wine club is an evolving extension of contemporary wine culture. Today, many wine clubs offer members a series of different wine bottles on a regular or monthly basis that they otherwise would have to locate and buy themselves. This has radically decreased the time involved in carrying out this routine and provided the opportunity to sample a wide variety of wines that otherwise might be too expensive for the average consumer. There are many such clubs available. Each club has its own set of criteria for selection, which usually include regional taste preferences, the types of grapes used in making the wine, and sometimes even limitations based on the cost of the wine. Clubs that offer wines worldwide are becoming increasingly popular in American and European circles, and more clubs of this type are being launched each month.
A Recipe For Pruno
Most of us like to spend our lives outside of prison, but some of us need to think about how it could be inevitable for some of us. Some of us just enjoy causing chaos too much to ever stay on the right side of Johnny Law. Others might end up in the wrong place at the wrong time, leading to them being framed for a crime that they did not commit. No matter how any of us might end up in jail, there needs to be an important question that needs to be answered once you are surrounded by a bunch of dangerous convicts: what can you offer to make everyone happy and keep yourself safe from being attacked by others? What could you potentially offer to someone else in order to get favors from fellow criminals while you are busy doing time? What is an important skill you can have while locked away from the rest of society that you can still make use of when you finally get out of the slammer? Well, in this story, I might finally be able to provide you with some information that will help you in both prison life and civilian life. This is knowledge that ancient humans have had for centuries, but people still use it to create delicious elixirs to this day, and now this knowledge will be yours. This, specifically, is the knowledge of how to create wine - specifically a variant of wine that can be made in prison known as pruno.

It's All About The Grapes
Do you love wine? But are not sure what kind of wine you like? Well, there are so many varieties of wine from sweet to the driest. My preferable taste is on the dry side and red. I know some wine drinkers, may think that wine is only made in the vineyards of California. But there are wine vineyards across the continental USA. When I was about 21 years old, I had my first drink of sweet wine, called Cherry Kijafa. This wine was delightful, and it made my head spin and I got drunk. When I woke up, I had the biggest, sweet wine hangover. That was the end of my sweet wine crusade. As I begin to work in the corporate world, I found out there were many varieties of wine, and I set out to see what wine I really could enjoy. When I ordered wine, waiters or waitresses would tell me about their wine list. I began perusing and pretended I knew wine. I decided I would try drier wines such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir, Merlot. (Not all at the same time mind you.) To be on the safe side, I tried Merlot, and this wine was not too sweet or dry, it seemed just right, and I began ordering Merlot when I went out to dinner. I then discovered that Merlot could taste fruity, dry, or between it depending on the brand of the wine. I noticed that I was a wine drinker and started trying a variety of dry wines. I discovered that there were different types of Cabernet Sauvignon wines, and they were the wines I enjoyed. Some of them taste just right not too dry or tart. Other cabernets had similar tastes but it depends upon the individual's taste buds. I wanted to know why some bottles of wine had an indent on the bottom of the bottle. In my research, I found out that this is called a “punt”. The punt allows residue to settle down into a tight space on the bottom of the bottle. This prevents the residue from being released back into the wine. The punt also allows the bottle to stand upright and be more stable and prevents the wine bottle from falling over. The punt also adds more style to the design of the bottle. In my further research, I wanted to know why there are years posted on the bottles of wine. Well, the year represents when the grapes were picked. So, if you find a bottle of wine with 2010, that is the year the grapes were picked, and the label is placed on the wine for that year. There are other variations, but this is the standard way the years are put on the bottle. Ladies and Gents, I wanted to give a little education about the wines you care to drink. In addition, to provide an insight into wine and what you may or may not think overall about wine drinking and tasting. Before I leave you, let me recommend some good-tasting wine for every palate whether sweet, sparkling, or dry. Here are a few you can enjoy, and one that I highly recommend: Cabernet Sauvignon Jacob’s Creek. Sweet Red Berringer, Napa Valley Shiraz, Lambrusco (Red wine), Sutter Home Red and White Moscato, Zinfandel Rose and Blush, Brachetto Red, Sidewood Chardonnay, Sangiovese Red Wine, Cupcake Tawny Port (sweet), 14 Hands Riesling, Bordeaux Reds, and Maury Sauvignon Blanc. Oh, I forgot to add, "drink responsibile".
