A Quick Guide to Bubbly

The different kinds of sparkling wine can get pretty confusing. For a basic understanding of what is dry or sweet, check out our chart below. 

champagne-infographic

 

For Mimosas
Generally, we recommend going with an inexpensive Extra Dry sparkling wine. But, depending on your taste, you can really go with any sparkling wine. If you like sweet, go with Spumante, and if you like dry, go with a Brut or Prosecco.

What is the difference between Champagne and sparkling wine?
The difference is Champagne is made in the Champagne region of France. Other sparkling wine that is, for example, made in California is generally made in the same way, but because of where it was made, is not considered champagne.

What is the difference between Champagne and Prosecco?
The simple answer is Champagne is made in the Champagne region of France and Prosecco is made in the Veneto region of Italy. Prosecco’s bubbles tend to be lighter with a little spritz, while Champagne’s bubbles are more sharp.

Rosé 101

Rosé 101


Don’t be afraid to go pink!
Many people think of rosés and they think of super-sweet pink wine… but what you might not know is that traditionally rosés are dry. As a general guideline most Old World (European) rosé wines will be on the dry side and most New World (everywhere else) rosé wines will be less dry. For example, most rosé wines made in NYS will be on the sweet side.

10 Random Facts About Wine

cheers

1.“In ancient Greece, a dinner host would take the first sip of wine to assure guests the wine was not poisoned, hence the phrase “drinking to one’s health.” “Toasting” started in ancient Rome when the Romans continued the Greek tradition but started dropping a piece of toasted bread into each wine glass to temper undesirable tastes or excessive acidity.”

2.“Early Roman women were forbidden to drink wine, and a husband who found his wife drinking was at liberty to kill her. Divorce on the same grounds was last recorded in Rome in 194 B.C.” This would certainly not fly today!

Organic Wines

About Organic Wines
The Organic movement has been gaining popularity not just in food production, but in wine production as well. People have become more and more interested in supporting processes that not only protect the Earth, but their bodies as well.

“Before wine can be sold as organic, both the growing of the grapes and their conversion to wine must be certified. This includes making sure grapes are grown without synthetic fertilizers and in a manner that protects the environment and preserves the soil. Other agricultural ingredients that go into the wine, such as yeast, also have to be certified organic.

Wines that are sold as “made with organic grapes” have different requirements than organic wine. When a wine is labeled as being made with organic grapes, 100% of those grapes used must be certified organic. Yeast and any other agricultural ingredients aren’t required to be organic, but have to be produced without excluded methods (like genetic engineering). As for non-agricultural ingredients, these have to be specifically allowed on the National List. Finally, sulfites may be added to wines that carry the “made with organic grapes” label—up to 100 parts per million.” -USDA

Production Classifications:

Organic Wine | Made from 100% organically grown ingredients and has been monitored throughout the entire production process. Often carries legal certification from USDA.

Biodynamic Wines | Practices carried out in an effort to balance the entire vineyard with nature and the moon cycles. This practice stems from the belief that the vineyard is one ecosystem that only when in balance can grow the best fruit. No legal certification.

Sustainable Wine | Farming that is good for the environment while also paying attention to the economics. If something doesn’t make sense economically for the winery, they might skip that step. No legal certification.
