Chile has a long history of winemaking for a New World wine region dating back to the colonization by the Spanish Empire in the 16th century. It were the Spanish who brought viticulture to Chile but in present-day French varieties proved more successful in this country of startling contrasts than Spanish ones. In today’s article, we take a closer look at Chilean winery Emiliana Vineyards which was named winery of the year 2015 by Wines of Chile at the annual Chilean Wine Awards.
San Leonardo is one of the most recognisable Bordeaux-blends of Northern Italy. It is admired by oenophiles and wine critics alike for its elegancy, longevity and consistency between vintages. In today’s article, we take a closer look at a particularly fine vintage of this Italian classic.
The temperatures are slowly but steadily rising and the sunny weather calls for fine rosé wines. Some of the most elegant ones come from Southern France, in particular Provence. One of the most in-demand wines of the season is the ’15 Miraval Rosé. Time to find out what this vintage is all about.
Barbera is one of the two signature grapes of Piedmont together with Nebbiolo. It is the grape variety behind Barbera d’Asti DOCG, Barbera d’Alba DOC and also found in a number of other Piedmontese wines. It is known for its natural high acidity and cherry flavors.
Syrah is the star of the Northern Rhone Valley and the national grape of Australia. Syrah can produce complex, spicy wines with a typical aroma of plums. In today’s article, I introduce to you a wine in which these two distinct grapes meet.
With the temperatures steadily rising, a glass or two of white wine makes any day better. In today’s post Vino in Love has a delicious dry Riesling Spätlese from a small winery from Nahe, a relatively small wine region in Rhineland-Palatinate with about 4000 hectares of vineyards. It takes its name from the River Nahe, a left tributary to the Rhine, and is probably best known for its Rieslings which find excellent growing conditions on the predominantly volcanic soil.
In today’s post we’ll take a closer look at the hilly coastal region of Liguria in northwestern Italy which boasts some of the country’s finest food like the world famous pesto genovese, Liguria’s tasty basil pesto. The region is also home to stunning white and sweet wines which are often overlooked. Wine from the Gulf of Poets is at the center of today’s article.
Last week, I gave you an overview of the region and its most important appellations. In the second post of this series, it is all about tasting notes.
