How to choose the best corkscrew for you

Choosing a good corkscrew can take us a while, but keep in mind that this decision is important for our future enjoyment, so let's buy a corkscrew for once and throw away that old one we have that any day will force us to dinner with water.

What can happen if we don’t know how to choose a good corkscrew? Based on my own experience I can say that almost everything. From...

Summer is coming... And sangria!

It's one of the most international Spanish drinks. Everyone has sometimes drunk sangria, that drink that comes always by the summer thanks to its refreshing powers.

Although there are many ways to make sangria, the most traditional is really simple and inexpensive, since you have just to mix wine with portions of various fruits and ice. The secret of its flavor depends on...

Moscatel, muscat, moscato, is it the same?

For several years, a glass of Muscat in the late afternoon is my way of shared way of celebrating January the first. It started as a coincidence, but now getting together a small group of friends, after family after dinner, to have the glass of Muscat wines which opens the year is a tradition that we never skip.

The one I like best, without going into specific brands, is the...

Fortified wines for cooking: marsala, porto, sherry

The wines are our closest ally in the kitchen, not just for that shot that we took while we cook, but for the variety and intensity of flavors and aromas that are achieved by adding them to our recipes. While my neighbor is the largest specialist I know about cooking with wine, as I think all his recipes include its secret ingredient (by all accounts): old wine, I also use...

When the heat comes, is the wine over?

I disagree with the statement "when the heat comes, buy wine is over." It is true that beer is a tough opponent for the grape juice in the coming months, especially when taking a walk we found that almost all the terraces we see in our way look like scenes of a beer commercial.

But we do not have to be alarmed because there are solutions to continue enjoying our favorite...

Wines for a barbecue

Summer and barbecue. It is the perfect tandem, the master combination, the proposal that never fails. It was already about time to go out to eat and enjoy a good barbecue. Our chefs skills embers armed with a good piece of beef, or pork, or chicken ... and they will only be improved if we know how to buy wine.

It can also happen that we are not the barbecue chief, but only ...

3 beers to finish the Euro 2012

I always write about wine: which wines are my favorites, curious things about wine, new wines or wines I want to try. But truth is that I also love beer. In fact, there are times when a beer replaces any other option. That happens for example, when we are at home with friends, ready to see any of those football games that end up making history, in and out of the screen.

Liebfraumilch, a German white wine

In his long wait for maturity, besieged by the threat of frost and intense cold, the German wine makers carve their vineyards on steep hills or mountain feet in the main regions of Mosel-Saar-Ruwer, Nahe, Rheingau, Rheinhessen, Pfalz and Baden. They patiently await the Mosel and Rhine rivers, among others, along with the Gulf Stream, to temper up the air; and provide, at best,...

Cold wines for the summer

Summer this year with temperatures high enough to make us fear the worst for July, force us start looking for fresh wines as a light option to our regular wine choices. People like me, looking deep into the red flavors and intense aromas without half measures, should change their minds, for their own sake, and make their way towards new experiences, less direct and more...
