100% Organic Wine | Sulfite Free Wine

Published on May 31, 2013, in Organic Wine, Wine.

Whether you think of yourself as an oenophile or just enjoy a glass of wine with dinner, finding an organic wine can be confusing.

Organic wines must contain 100 percent organically produced ingredients and have been processed using only organically produced aids.  Also, organic wine does not contain added sulfites as the USDA considers sulfites to be a synthetic food additive.  A 100 percent organic wine should state that it is 100 percent organic as well as the name of the agency that certified the wine.  Also, look for the USDA organic seal.

The Organic Wine Company, founded by Veronique Raskin, one of the pioneers of the organic wine movement, is committed to offering wines that are a pleasure to drink and are made from certified organic grapes.  The Organic Wine Company has selected for your enjoyment wines made with certified organic grapes made in accordance with European organic wine standards.

Champagne vs. Prosecco | Sparkling Wine

Published on February 21, 2012, in Champagne, Wine.

If you are a lover of the bubbly, you have probably been told the difference between Champagne and Prosecco. You also probably already know that anything made outside of the French Region of Champagne is called sparkling wine.  Prosecco obviously cannot be champagne since it is made in Italy.  After years of tasting, I have come to the conclusion that Prosecco is my drink of choice.

Like champagne, real versions of Prosecco are produced in a specific region of Italy called the Veneto region. Prosecco is slightly lighter and generally sweeter than champagne. Prosecco is fermented twice in the modern Charmat method in large stainless steel vats. Champagne is fermented in the Champenoise method where the second fermentation takes place in the bottle.

Because Prosecco is processed using the Charmat method, the wine tends to keep its light freshness because it does not need to age like Champagne. Prosecco is for every day drinking. It compliments a wide range of food from appetizers to fish and even some meat dishes. Prosecco is moderate in alcohol usually around 11%, which is lighter than many white wines.

Red Wine | Malbec

Published on January 23, 2012, in Wine, Wine Tasting.

Among the “big six”, the Malbec grape originates from the Bordeaux region of France, but has become Argentina’s signature grape. Say Malbec to a wine lover and they will reply Argentina.  Malbec is making a new name for itself with red wine lovers everywhere.

Malbec is typically a medium to full-bodied red wine. Ripe fruit flavors of plums and blackberry give it a jammy characteristic with firm tannins and a dense color.

Malbec is definitely a red meat wine that is adaptable enough to stand up to spicy Mexican, Cajun, Indian or Italian fare. Consider serving Malbec with barbecue, chili and sausage.
