A Better Way to Open a Bottle of Wine

Twisting a corkscrew into a bottle of wine certainly isn't rocket science but isn't fun either. In fact it's a downright chore. If you don't position it just right over the cork, you will twist at an angle creating a mess of crumbled cork or worse, a cracked bottle.Here's an enclosed corkscrew that actually makes opening wine fun again. Smart Touch enables you to never have to touch the cork or deal with the possibility of it…See More

Small Batch Wines Delivered to Your Doorstep

Here's a fact we rarely keep in mind when browsing wines in a local wine shop or discount liquor store. 80% of wine sold in these outlets are produced by just 3 corporate wineries. This means there's a lot of blending going on. Many times inferior wines or off-vintages are mixed together under familiar labels so vineyards don't take a total loss on what otherwise could have been sold by the…See More

Celebrating Culinary Inspiration at Clearwater Beach Uncorked

Florida means different things to different people. Popularized characteristics include Disney, sunshine, G/gators, the Everglades, and miles of wide open beaches. And then there's Florida's Gulf Coast, endless stretches of powder white sand that were remarkably resilient to the ravages of the Deep Water Horizon Oil Spill several years ago. Right in the middle is Clearwater Beach…See More

The Most Effective Way to Aerate Your Wine & Spirits

I'll be honest, I never gave aeration much thought when drinking wines. I certainly didn't even contemplate it for spirits. Does adding oxygen really impact the flavor enough to go through the bother of squeezing air into your glass every time you imbibe?Well, with Aermate, I tried it out on my various favorites whether it was a glass of bold Argentinian Malbec or Speyside…See More

Off the Grid Moroccan Wine Tastings

But despite its large Islamic population, Morocco has historically been a prolific wine producing country. As far back as 2,500 years ago, this part of North Africa completed an arc of wine growing regions spanning the Mediterranean weaving through Italy, Greece, Turkey.Truth…See More

Lugano’s Urban Winery: Fattoria Moncucchetto

Walking upward on steep cobbled lanes through the village of Lugano Switzerland still enshrouded by morning mists rising from Lago di Lugano is certainly one of life's finer ways to get a workout. If you're up for even more climbing (or a short cab ride), include a…See More

Besides plotting to out each other, the entire cast seems to always have something in their mouth. After tasting Francis Ford Coppola's…See More

Classic Chardonnays Only Wish They Were Chablis

chablis Since 1923 at Chablis in France's Burgundy region, soils fortified with limestone and marl have yielded some interesting flavor profiles spread across a mosaic of vineyard plots situated in villages like La Chapelle Vaupelteigne and Chemilly sur Serein. Vines averaging 20 years old yield refreshingly nuanced Chardonnay grapes you won't find anywhere else. The fruit is then artfully fermented into a…

Hi Steve,

Portugal has many autochthones grape varieties, red and whites.
White varieties are very interesting, with very different characters, but SYRIA also called Códega do Larinho is fantastic, with citrons aromas of tangerine and orange.
Portugal Dão region has the most gastronomic wines: fresh, intense, elegant with very nice acidity, made with autochthonous grapes from very particularly varieties.
Just try.
I am a producer in Portuguese Dão region, and I suggest you to taste an old Dão.

Just see what Paul White Thinks about as:

“So far, Portugal has managed to remain true to its traditions, while at the same time offering up a huge range of distinctive grape varieties and unusual wine styles precisely when many of us are tiring of endless New World makeovers of French varietals.

Dao has a lot going for it in that respect: first rate grape varieties firmly rooted in granite-based ‘terroir’ that sparkles back like diamonds, all this shaped by a growing season that’s relatively gentler and longer than other Portuguese regions. Although relatively unknown and sometimes tricky to pronounce, Dao’s red wines offer consumers genuinely new and exciting tasting experiences.”

Visit please our web-site, for now it’s just in Portuguese, but to see photos you don’t need any translation: www.quintadaboavista.eu

Hope to hear from you soon.
