Q & A WITH THE WINE LADY
So I really am trying to open up interaction with my readers and not just have my mom be the only to comment on things (but thank you mom). I want you guys to start writing in questions, concerns, or just anything and I want to help you out to the best of my ability. As this being my first one I didn’t get very many questions but I will answer the couple that I got.
“How do I know what wine is for me?”- Jojo
Okay so I have been to a lot of weddings and big birthday’s this year and my go to gift is wine of course. I always think to myself though what if they don’t like this style of wine? How can I pick a wine that I know they will like? So for you or anyone that want’s to find their style. Start with either a Dry Rose preferably from France my favorite is always made from Pinot grapes too. If your scared of a Rose than stick with your staples, if you think you will like a white try a Chardonnay. , Pinot Grigio, or Sauvignon Blanc. The Pinot g. and the Sauv are going to be way sweeter than a chardonnay so remember that when you are looking. If you think you will be a red start off with a Pinot Noir or a Cabernet Sauvignon, remember with those two a Cab is going to be really full bodied versus a Pinot which is usually low to medium bodied. Keep to Trader Joe’s or Bevmo for their 5 cent wine sales for wines so you don’t waste your money on something you don’t like. There you have that!
“Why is pink wine pink if there are no pink grapes?”-@gigijuicy (via email)
I often wondered this question myself so what else would other then turn to my loving and trusting Google. Obviously, it is the place I turn to for all of my problems and no that is not sarcasm. I learned the Rose is actually made from red grapes, the same grape that Red wine comes from. What happens is, is the skin is left in contact with the juice until the desired color of juice, and then they take the skins out and take the juice and finish the fermentation process.
“What different temperatures do you serve each variety at?”
I have a little cheat chart I use that I found on Pinterest that I literally pinned the second I created a Pinterest. Follow this guide it will not steer you wrong.
