Wine knowledge

Well now that you're here there is something you could be helpful with. A post this evening is about good priced quality wine

The region our new place is in is coming down with amazingly priced quality wine-you actually get it free with your meal by the bottle indeed with wifey a teetotaller and me knowing sod all about wine we have been taking free coke, much to the restauranteurs annoyance as it's dearer than the wine

In the local bodegas there is wine for sale which is exactly the same one as I spotted in Killarney bars. There it was €4.50 a glass, in Valencia €8 for 3 litres!!

So I wanna get into wine. Have only tasted it once or twice almost 30 years ago. I imagine my pallete will have changed from then so give me a few tips on what to go for

Ps two of the ones that seem to abound everywhere in various varieties- Cava and Muscatel-the names mean nothing to me

Re: Wine knowledge

Jesus even the thought of that stuff would have turned me even when I was a kid

It's still massive in Armagh and known as Lurgan champagne

Re: Wine knowledge

Why not go on a wine-tasting tour? Then at least you will find out if you prefer red, white or rosé without breaking the bank.

Re: Wine knowledge

It takes lots and lots of practice Philip and lots of sampling before you find the ones you like. I know, I fought that battle.

Re: Wine knowledge

And if they offer cheese with the wine-tasting - don't take it. Cheese makes any toilet-cleaner taste good.

Re: Wine knowledge

There are 4 bodegas near our village. Three of them have "unlimited" tasting

The vats are massive with around a dozen outside well over 30 foot high. You can buy by bottle or bring your own plastic container with wines starting at €7 for 5 litres

Re: Wine knowledge

Why don'the you start with the local produce in Umbongo land? Well known for its laxative properties, it strips paint and causes uncontrollable verbal diarrhoea. Oh wait a minute, looks like you've been imbibing already.

Unfortunately it doesn'the travel well. Often from the bottle to the glass is too much for it.
