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...

The port wine

There are many styles of port wine, but four are the most important.

The white, which can be dry or semisweet. Among the reds, the most common is the ruby, a young wine that owes its name to its color. There is also the tawny, aged in wood for many years (not less than six) where by oxidation becomes a dark amber color. Finally, the vintage, the wine that has...

Pauillac, luxury in the Gironde left side

Water plays a decisive role on the development of Médoc grapes and their proximity to the Atlantic Ocean and their location, near the Gironde, set features and is probably the cause of that French wines from this region are the inspiration for all other wines of this country and some abroad. It is no coincidence that the region of Pauillac is precisely here.

It does not...

Cava Vs. Champagne

I was asked about my opinion on the competition between cava and champagne, and the truth is that I dare not say.

First, because it is more than a debate about taste, since there is plenty of politics in all. On the other hand, because there is cavas and champagnes for everyone, so it is difficult to generalize.

Let's say, I am not particularly inclined to cavas or ...
