Why do we need to know the date of disgorgement

 TAGS:The most important brands of Sparkling wines crown it all right now. It is time to consume their wines, toast with them and make a few splurges as those we cannot afford so often during the rest of the year. Joy and happiness among consumers, but just the opposite among producers. The reason of it: to make public the date of disgorgement.

The reason for this concern is purely economic and logistic: in only one vintage you may need to print 3 or 4 different back labels which would reflect the different disgorgement dates on the bottles.

Beer and its anti-virus protection properties

 TAGS:Prevent pneumonia and bronchitis is possible and the best is the remedy. Now we have a compelling reason to drink beer as its consumption provides a very effective anti-virus protection. The most interesting thing is that benefits accrue if the consumer is a young person, as declared by a team of researchers from the Japanese University of Sapporo.

Stricter Parents must change their mindset and start considering the issue from a different point of view. Since now on, when kids escape with friends to the park or the square to hang out together with a few cans of beer, we will have to consider it almost as a preventive treatment. It only remains to claim the necessary moderation when drinking, of course.

The 10 most spicy drink ads

 TAGS:To me, the hottest alcoholic beverage commercial ever is the Cabana cachaça one, which shows a woman naked from the waist down, of whom you can only see a side view which allows you to guess where her bikini was. Just this much could be considered as a naughty commercial, but the final touch is given by the phrase "authentically Brazilian" that leaves much more to the imagination.

Dooley's Toffee Liqueur is a brand of vodka with toffee essence, which will follow the cachaça in this ranking. In its ad, a pretty spicy snapshot in black and white, it promotes the sweetness of the drink that is accompanied by an explicit suggestion: "On ice, on ice cubes, on the skin. " They already warn that is not recommended for innocent...

Aperitivo hour: the latest trend in the UK

 TAGS:In the UK any excuse is perfect for socializing. The aperitivo hour fashion has come strongly to pubs and cafes that let themselves and their customers get inspired by one of the best moments of the Mediterranean culture. If Bridget Jones would had known this, she would have sung a different story.

Spain and Italy, both are pioneers in this healthy tradition that is actually the after work precursor but at a different time. It consists in going out for a drink before lunch time. Generally it is a beer or a wine accompanied by a small tapa. In the most chic version it is a cocktail and some canapés, while the most traditional side comes out when you ask for a vermouth and a plate of olives. But what, how and where they are not important, the main thing here is that it really becomes a meeting point, a place in time to relax and to unwind in the middle of the day.

Saint - Emillion wines new classification

 TAGS:The classification system of Saint - Emilion wines has the characteristic of being subject to revision. In fact, this statement is not just a simple line that thickens some kind of agreement from decades ago but a reality that has been implemented, approximately every ten years, and which has its consequences. However, after the 2006 revision there were only 5 years until the new one which took place in 2011, when it was decided to review all the classification again.

The 2012 classification regulation was approved in June last year and it took into account no more and no less than eighty-two different wine properties. This comprehensive review resulted in almost a year of work against the clock (i.e. ten months uninterrupted).

World leaders' favorite drinks

 TAGS:World leaders are human. They have a favorite football team, movie, meal and even a favorite drink. Psychologists can probably get a lot from the information I will share with you in this post and they will for sure attribute all kinds of personality traits to each of these powerful leaders, based on the contents of their glass. Is it true that all beer or whisky drinkers have something in common?

Well, in the first assault we have Barack Obama and Angela Merkel. If this unrivaled couple gather together a holiday on a terrace by the sea on a sunny afternoon (we will give a bucolic touch to the matter), they both would ask for beer.

Wine Trends in Hong Kong

 TAGS:

Currently, China is an emerging market in many areas and also in the world of wine. Hong Kong, the capital of import, imposes trends nationwide. Want to know what's most trendy in Hong Kong's wine world?

In general terms we note that French wines top the list of the most consumed, but increasingly new wines from other countries with less production gain force. So, Hong Kong citizens like to experiment and taste, and they leave classic wines to open up to others of smaller productions.

Australia and the United States are two of the countries that sell most wine in the country, after France. And what about the Spanish wines? The magic and strong personality flavor of Spanish wines are increasingly demanded. Something that denotes the effort of Spanish producers crossing borders and introducing wines in other countries, with Asia as a preferential place.

What is Fragolino?

 TAGS:Fragolino is that almost unknown wine which is made from fox and frost grapes, both with American origin. When buying Fragolino you have to make sure you are getting the original product and not any of the substitutes that exist, to which strawberry essence is added. Beyond entering assess whether they are better or worse, you have to keep in mind that it is not what you were looking for, but some different kind of drink.

Find Fragolino is not an easy task, in fact, internet is the best way to search, compare and take home a good brand at a reasonable price (even though price does not use to be a trouble regarding this type of wine). The reason for such difficulty is that not any ground is suitable for growing such grapes as the ones that this wine is made of.
