So you think you know wines?  Well perhaps you do. https://www.alcoholproblemsandsolutions.org/wine-experts-and-wine-snobism-exposed-as-deceptive/   As a very young man I attended a "beer tasting" night at my local surf club. (you know waves, surfboards, bikini's, sun tans ...). YES A BEER TASTING! My mates and I were rather enamored of beer at that time so it was natural thing for us to do. It was a good excuse anyway. Very few women attended, it was a blokes thing. Well as the night wore on we had all tasted very well and as part of the night a group of men were selected (dragooned ..read more

Chinese Fruit Wine (non-grape)
eGullet Forums » Wine

China has a long history of fermenting fruit other than grapes into wines. Here are a few, starting with my favourite.   Fresh Bayberries (杨梅) In 1997, I first ate dried 杨梅 (yáng méi), Chinese bayberries, aka waxberry or Myrica rubra*, in Xi’an, home to the Terracotta Warriors and was delighted by their sweet yet tart flavour. Later I moved to Hunan province and was able to buy the fresh fruit there when in season (May and June). I got through a lot in their short time available. They are also easy to find here in Guangxi at the appropriate time. I still get through a  lot.   I ..read more

Hi, I’ve got a collection of decently fine wine, and my storage room/cellar will get up to 68 degrees Fahrenheit on really hot days. it drops down to 60-64@night after hot days, and will stay around just 60 during the summer on average as long as it does not get too hot. my question is if this will be a problem, since the temp only rises for a short time, I think the bottles stay around 60degrees? any advice or experience? thanks for your time ..read more

For example, I recently got some Rioja  Reserva from 2002.    That's 20 years!!    Would it be too old?    Obviously for some wines and vintages, that is nothing.   Just don't know.      Any help on this ..read more

Wine pairing for caramelized carrot soup from Modernist cuisine
eGullet Forums » Wine
by

I've tried to scour the internet for suggested wine parings for the caramelized carrot soup from Modernist cuisine at home, without luck. It tastes very different from your typical carrot soup, both sweeter and a lot more powerful. I'm thinking champagne might do the trick or I might revert to my "when in doubt" favorite - riesling (I'd guess something with quite a bit of body and some age). Does anyone have any experiences to share?  ..read more
