If you couldn't tell from Instagrams of your friend's friend's bae, or the general pink and red themes taking over every restaurant and Snapchat filter, Valentine's Day is fast approaching. While it's a lovely time for some to go out to dinner with their significant other, some of us can't do that — mainly because a half-eaten bag of Doritos apparently "doesn't justify a table for two." Instead of fighting with a hostess, try to celebrate this holiday solo with these essentials.

Mountain Reds from Northern Italy: Schiava, Lagrein, and Teroldego.

At the base of the mighty Dolomites sits two northern Italian wine regions known for Germanic-inflected culture, food, and cool-climate viticulture. Alto-Adige and Trentino, both formerly part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, feel distinct from the rest of Italy. They also harbor a trio of indigenous red grapes that are far removed from mainstream consumption. Despite Americans’ fascination with Europe’s boot, from pizza, pasta, Barolo, Brunello, and of course, Prosecco, most have yet to discover the patchwork of delicious oddities upon which Italy is founded.

Regional Snapshot: Hawke’s Bay, New Zealand

A wine region’s ability to emulate a famous appellation isn’t the primary reason to study it, but it’s a compelling feature, nonetheless. 

 

Several years ago, famous author Oz Clarke published a book entitled Bordeaux. In it, he listed the few regions of the world boasting similar enough growing conditions to the French appellation to be considered “lookalikes” of the Medoc. Hawke’s Bay made the cut. While this area on the North Island produces stunning red Bordeaux blends, it also produces fine imitations of Syrah from the Northern Rhône Valley. A twofer, if you will, and a departure from New Zealand’s more famous red, Pinot Noir.

Long after the traditional harvest time has ended, some grape growers leave their grapes hanging on the vine, waiting for the ideal moment to pick them. Americans call it ice wine; Canadians, icewine; and Germans refer to it as “eiswein”; but it all comes down to that luscious, intensely flavored dessert wine. Keep reading to learn more about it!

The top ten reasons to use your Coravin

We sometimes hear from people that Coravin “isn’t for them;” they have no problem drinking an entire bottle of wine at once. Of course, having just a single glass of wine without wasting what remains is a great use for Coravin, but it definitely isn’t the only one. In fact, when Greg Lambrecht invented Coravin over a decade ago, his dream was to be able to drink across many bottles at a time instead of drinking down one bottle and then moving on to the next. By shifting your thinking away from finishing one bottle before moving onto the next, you’ll start to see that your freedom and enjoyment of wine (and the amount of half empty bottles in your collection) will grow exponentially.

Wine and Oxygen - A Love/Hate Relationship

Many factors are important to the evolution of wines as they age in the bottle. One of those factors is the introduction of very small amounts of oxygen into the wine through the cork (via closure ingress). But the relationship between wine and oxygen is complicated.
