    Great primer on decanting. I think these more educational videos are great, and something that you don't see often enough on blogs. Well done!

    Great job.

    We actually decant almost every wine we drink, with the exception of sparkling wine, though I'm going to experiment with that at some point.

    It is also fun to get two bottles of the same wine, decant one and not the other, then re-bottle and serve them “blind” in terms of knowing which is decanted vs. not. It really is the only way to see how something can be (or not) helped by some aeration.

    Cheers,

    Kevin,
    I love the idea of doing the blind decanting test! Watch at friends of ChrisO. I find decanting to be very important in most young wines. I often try the wine before decanting, then write some notes and then taste the wine after 30 -45 minutes of decanting and then compare my notes. Usually an eye opening experience.

    Cheers!

The Stories Behind Wine Episode 2 – Oslavia – Drinking History

Inspired by the book, “Ribolla Gialla Oslavia: The Invisible Part of a Wine,” we travel to a little village in Italy called Oslavia that has been gaining popularity in the wine world for producing non-traditional, original wines with the Ribolla Gialla grape. The battle ground for both 20th century world wars, this area experienced complete destruction only to have strong independent winemakers return to replant its vineyards and rebuild. With Ribolla Gialla, you can drink Oslavia’s history.

Podcast 23-Value from Bordeaux

We are particularly excited about this podcast because we get to discuss a topic that is not usually associated with this region, and that is value. Join us as we taste through 3 wines; a white, rose, and red wine from the broader appellations of Bordeaux. All of the wines we taste are in the sub $15 range and deliver on the promise of good QPR (quality price ratio).

We asked John Alban, the founder of and chief evangelist of the Hospice du Rhone movement, this very question and many others and got answers that may surprise you.
