But in another sense we could define it as even more exotic: these are bottles that none of the tasters knew about - or recognized when we uncapped them - because they belong to a kind of flowering of new wineries, or completely new wines from well-established wineries, such as Alta Alella. or the historic El Grifo lanzarotea. What is happening?

Casa Silva Quinta Generación: a delicious wine with the aroma of plums, blackberries, blueberries and raspberries

Viña Casa Silva was born in 1997, following an old family desire to project, in a bottle of wine, the love and affection of a family for their land, the Colchagua Valley. This adventure began with Don Emilio Bouchon who comes from Bordeaux France, he arrived in Chile in 1892. From the beginning, he dedicated himself to the production of wines, being a pioneer in the Colchagua Valley.

Humo Blanco Pinot Noir: an ideal wine to share with the family

François Lurton is that character who managed to surprise me more than once with wines as complex as Alka, a cult Carmenere, Gran Araucano, a Cabernet of great elegance or the white Clos de Lolol which is a mixture of Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay with a freshness that catches you.

The new strategy of Spanish wine: to become small to become better

In the midst of the crisis in the sector due to the pandemic, the large wineries are betting on a production of more added value instead of massification. These are some of the new 'gems' that are still unknown to the general public VCTOR DE LA SERNA @vdelaserna Updated Friday, April 23, 2021 - 01:42The gastronmada Read here all their articles From the quantity comes the profit.

Yep, Cheap Wine Really Does Taste Better if You Increase The Price Tag

In 2002, one of the most prestigious restaurants in New York City served four Wall Street workers its most expensive bottle of wine: a US$2,000 Mouton Rothschild from 1989.After it was decanted, the host of the group, a self-reported wine connoisseur, twirled his glass, took a sip and began praising the wine for its purity. Blissfully ignorant, the group had accidentally been given the cheapest bottle of wine on the menu, a Pinot noir valued at just US$18.  This story might sound like a flight of fancy, but growing research on the psychology and neuroscience of wine-tasting suggests mistakes like this are made all the time, although true wine experts often know better.One of the first studies to explicitly manipulate the price of wine in a realistic tasting session has found a cheap glass...
