  • Demystifying Wine Terms Part 2

    Posted on July 1, 2013 by Team Vinport

     
    Ever asked a waiter or wine shop owner to recommend a "Dry Wine"? If so, you may not have been asking for what you think you were asking for...
     
    As we mentioned last week, our main goals with this series of demystification posts is to break down some common wine jargon into plain language, so that you can 1) understand what is going on with the wine [...] Read More

  • Demystifying Wine Terms

    Posted on June 17, 2013 by Team Vinport

    One of the most intimidating aspects about wine is the terminology used to describe it.  The oftentimes flowery and seemingly pretentious language may as well have been written in equal parts Russian, Greek, and Swahili for the average wine drinker (hopefully not too many of you can read all three of these languages or else that won’t make sense to you).
     
    We wanted to take a [...] Read More

  • A Letter to Mom

    Posted on May 2, 2013 by Team Vinport

    Dear Mom,
    Thank you – for Italy.
    It opened my eyes to an amazing culture and way of life.
    Summer before my senior year of college was fast approaching. I knew my opportunity to study abroad would be lost if I did not try to go over the summer. The only program offering art classes was in Florence, Italy (Lorenzo d’ Medici). Pastels? In art Mecca? Sign me [...] Read More

  • New Discoveries: Be Curious! Be Adventurous!

    Posted on January 27, 2013 by Team Vinport

     
    In Vinport lingo, a New Discovery is a wine that has never been offered before in the US market. That alone makes a New Discovery kind of intriguing. What could be better than sharing an evening with friends when all of sudden you crack open a bottle of wine that they are almost guaranteed never to have tasted? Or sending a New Discovery to that [...] Read More

  • Champagne Taste, Part2: Why is one bottle of wine more expensive than another?

    Posted on December 21, 2012 by Team Vinport

     
    “You have Champagne taste, but beer money.”
    ~ A phrase my grandmother frequently told my mother growing up. ~
    In our previous post from yesterday, we detailed why some wines are more expensive than others, but this increase in cost has almost no connection to the quality of the wine.
    But sometimes, price IS indicative of quality... So what is different between one bottle of wine and another? It [...] Read More

  • Champagne Taste – Beer Money

    Posted on December 20, 2012 by Team Vinport

    “You have Champagne taste, but beer money.”
    ~ A phrase my grandmother frequently told my mother growing up. ~
     
    Unfortunately, I seem to have inherited this knack for finding the expensive in a crowd of reasonable. I routinely walk into stores and unknowingly select the most expensive item. Without. Fail.
    However, at a recent Spanish Wine Tasting, I rated my wines prior to finding out the price (a full [...] Read More

  • Wine as an anti-depressant?

    Posted on December 14, 2012 by Team Vinport

    I just read an article on Decanter.com of a recent study that states that women who drink moderate amounts of alcohol have a lower risk of depression.
    Does this mean women should go have a glass of wine when they are feeling sad?
    Not necessarily!
    Now, I have not gone back and read the original article, but I’m sure they don’t make this grandiose claim that drinking (on its own) seems [...] Read More

  • Holiday Cocktail - Frosty Poinsettia

    Posted on December 7, 2012 by Team Vinport

    This past weekend was the first weekend in December. As such, it officially became the Holiday Season.
     
    Which means, time to start making Holiday Cocktails!
     
    Now, I normally just drink wine (or beer), but I was feeling quite festive before heading to a friend’s Holiday party. There was an open bottle of Gewürztraminer in the fridge that needed to be enjoyed within the next couple of days…

  • Rías Baixas – Spain’s Home for Albariño

    Posted on November 12, 2012 by Team Vinport

     
    No matter how much you know about wine, there is always more to learn! So at Vinport, despite our oenological prowess, we try to attend every seminar we can, so that we can stay on top of our game. A couple of weeks ago, we attended a seminar and tasting about Rías Baixas and were so impressed, we wanted to pass along the information to you!
