Pine trees and wine? What's the punchline? Here we go, our dear Winee bud. . . Now double tap on this fluffy 🌲 and tag a real Winee nerd who can even handle a history lesson just to know a bit more about that sacred liquid. . . Back in the days when oak or any other barrels were not that popular (like 1,700 years ago) wine from all over the world was stored in ceramic amphorae with a cork made of a pine tree. The wine obtained the flavor of pine trees thanks to that cork. Even more this wine has a specific name of Resinated wine even till our times. Greece is the country where white and rose resinated wines are still being produced by these days which is called quite obviously Retsina wines. . . Follow @wearewinees if no matter how many spikes ahead you will get your desired sip of your favorite wine. Hashtag your thorny Winee journey with #wearewinees to be featured and squeeze that drop of resins in the comments below ↓↓↓ . . Cheers & Yours, Winee 🥂 #wearewinees #pinetree #winehistory #resinated at Reikiavik

🇮🇹La risposta è Corsica. #vindovinello È la Corsica, terra natia di Napoleone Bonaparte, ad avere una lunga storia come produttrice di vino. I vini prodotti erano di « di tipo Greco »: molto alcolici, dolci o secchi e di elevata qualità. Seppur Napoleone avesse le sue origini in Corsica e la sua famiglia fosse produttrice di vino, lui non la difese mai in tale senso, tant’è che la Corsica fu invasa da vini francesi a basso costo. Questo declino e l’arrivo della filossera determinarono la perdita dei grandi vini corsi fino agli anni 70, anni in cui, grazie all’arrivo degli algerini ( pieds noirs) che piantarono vigneto nella parte orientale dell’isola, ha avuto origine una vera e propria rinascita. . . 🇫🇷La réponse est Corse La Corse, l’île de Napoleon Bonaparte, a une longue histoire dans la production de vins. Ces vins étaient de « style Grecque »: très alcooliques, doux ou brut et d’une très grande qualité. Même si Napoleon était originaire de Corse et sa famille productrice de vins, il ne s’est jamais intéressé à défendre ses produits et la Corse fut envahie par les vins français à bon marché. Cette situation et l’arrivé de la phylloxera determina la perte des grands vins de Corse jusqu’au années 70: les algériens ( pieds noirs), dans ces années, ont commencé à cultiver la vigne dans la partie orientale de l’île et on a assister à une vrai renaissance du vignoble Corse et de ses produits. at Corsica

⁣ 🍷 Domaine Gerard Duplessis ⁣ 📆 2016⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⁣ 🌍 Chablis, France⁣ ⁣ 👃🏻Honeysuckle, classic flint and mineral nose with summer flowers ⁣ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⁣ 👅The palate is lively with a great line of acidity, a touch of lime and clementine with a vivacious, slightly peachy finish. This is just very Vaillons.⁣ ⁣ 📜Domaine Gerard Duplessis is a family run cellar founded in 1985, today managed by his son Lilian Duplessis. The Domaine has 9 hectares divided on 8 different appellations. Every vineyard is worked in accordance to organic farming since 2007 and achieved certification in 2013. All vineyards used for village, Premier Cru, and Grand Cru wines are on Kimmeridgian limestone. Gerard’s philosophy for working in harmony with the earth translates to how he works in the cellar: native yeast fermentations, long lees aging in stainless steel tank followed by six to eighteen month elévage in neutral oak barrels before being bottled with a minimal addition of sulfur. The Premier Cru and Grand Cru bottlings see seasoned barrels as part of the elevage.⁣ ⁣ ⭐️ This Premier Cru (1er Cru) site of Vaillons is one of the largest Premier Cru vineyards in Chablis, located in a valley to the southwest of Chablis town itself. Here, on the western side of the Serein river, a southeasterly aspect and high-quality Kimmeridgian soils make for an excellent terroir. Vaillons has the same Kimmeridgian subsoil that is found in Chablis' best vineyards. This chalky clay soil is the result of an ancient sea that once covered northern France: tiny marine fossils throughout have led to a high proportion of limestone, contributing to the stony characters in Chablis wines. at Jackalope Mornington Peninsula

#lastoriadelvino 😀 La leggenda racconta che passato da poco l’anno 1100 nel cammino verso Roma la corte “tedesca” si faceva precedere da un coppiere. Il coppiere aveva il compito di anticipare la corte e indicare sulla porta delle taverne EST ( Est bonum) ove avrebbe trovato il vino buono! Il servo arrivato a #montefiascone trovò un vino eccezionalmente buono, e decise di ripete la scritta 3 volte : EST EST EST! E da lì una #doc del #lazio 😀 #estestest #madeinitaly #winehistory #winelover #winediscovery #enoturismo #whitewine at Montefiascone

Vino y... ¿Religión? Durante el siglo V la iglesia y la producción vinicola se mantuvieron estrechamente ligadas. Tras la caída de Roma y el inicio del Cristianismo es la iglesia quien se encarga de controlar y producir los vinos del viejo mundo siendo preferida la varietal moscatel para la elaboración de los vinos de consagración. Los sacerdotes pedían como requisito una porción de terrenos para sembrar vid junto a los monasterios. #winehistory #winefacts #winebasics #winelove #winelife #winegirl #student #winery #learning #aprendiendo

This 2014 Talawind, which hails from California’s Russian River Valley, is dead serious. Intense, austere, dry, but like any great work of art, ultimately rewarding, and something you’ll turn over, review, re-assess and obsess over with anyone else who’s encountered it. We decanted it and let it breathe, and after about 30 minutes it opened its tightly wound fist and within an hour, it sang. 🎶🎶🍷🎶🎶 Smoke, red cherries, cardamom, coffee. Depth tunneling down, further. Black fruit and minerals. A medium body, a silky drinkability. Winemaker Patrick Melley selected several different Pinot Noir clones from the 2014 harvest, and aged the wine in new French oak, which may explain the enchanting spiciness of this vintage. I drank it alongside a 2015 and 2016 as part of a #sample Talawind tasting, and the others were radically different. I highly recommend vertical tastings, because it teaches you so much about the winemaker and how much every decision they make can impact the final product. More notes on the other vintages later. 🍷👌☀️ The wine bears the name of the ranch’s former owner’s beloved Arabian studhorse, Talafire. 🐎Winemaker Patrick Melley knew the ranch and the previous owners well; traces of its previous incarnation as an equestrian Shangri-la can still be seen, but the grazing pastures have been replanted with nine acres of vineyards. 🍷☀️🍷☀️🍷

The 2018’ vintage reports are 🔥 in the Mosel and most of the EU. Here are some macros of the incredible Rieslings we saw this year. ⬇️ —————————————————— 📝 With must weights which - in the case of Riesling ´s average of 85 Oechsle - lay in the Spätlese range, the Mosel wines of 2018 are characterized by their rich aroma, harmonious structure with moderate acidity levels and elegant, juicy fruitiness. The vintage offers a wide spectrum for the wine lover, from very promising sparkling base wines to fabulous Beeren- and Trockenbeerenauslese wines. —————————————————— #noblegrape #rieslinglove #winemaker #germany #deutschland #winelove #weinliebe #vino #sommelier #somm #macrophotography #grapesphotography #2018vintage #sommlife #ichliebewein #weine #vinothek #viticulture #terroir #vinum #winefacts #winehistory #moselhistory #rheingau #steepvineyards #moselwine #weinliebhaber #winestagram #weinprobe #instawine at Mosel Valley

The 2018’ vintage reports are 🔥 in the Mosel and most of the EU. Here are some macros of the incredible Rieslings we saw this year. ⬇️ —————————————————— 📝 When grapes look picture-perfect at harvest time, hopes are high for excellent wines. Such was the case in the Mosel 2018 – but that was not all. Volume estimates of approx. one million hectolitres were also very satisfying, especially as there had been roughly a third less the previous year. But until that happy end, drought and heat as well as the fear of hailstorms and heavy rain had kept growers on tenterhooks. —————————————————— #noblegrape #rieslinglove #winemaker #germany #deutschland #winelove #weinliebe #vino #sommelier #somm #macrophotography #grapesphotography #2018vintage #sommlife #ichliebewein #weine #vinothek #viticulture #terroir #vinum #winefacts #winehistory #moselhistory #rheingau #steepvineyards #moselwine #weinliebhaber #winestagram #weinprobe #instawine at Mosel Valley

I’m super excited to dig into this #sample vertical tasting from Talawind Ranch tonight. I love vertical and horizontal tastings, because they allow me to see how deeply both the hand and the land that makes and grows the grapes can affect the final taste in the glass. 🍷 🍷 In a vertical tasting, you sample different vintages of the same wine type of varietal, from the same winemaker. In this way, you can assess the different ways weather and other factors affect wine made from the same grapes, on the same land, by the same hands. Horizontal tastings, on the other hand, set up a comparison of wines from the same vintage (i.e., made in the same year), but from different wineries. A focused horizontal will also keep the grape varietal and the region the same, in order to underline the differences in winery styles. 🍷🍷🍷 This will be a tasting of Pinot Noirs from California’s Russian River AVA. The Russian River in Sonoma County is named for the water that sluices through it; the river effect and the influence from the Pacific Ocean, create the perfect climate for growing Pinot and Chardonnay, Burgundian varieties that account for much of the plantings in the region. Some of the best Pinots I’ve tasted have hailed from the Russian River, so I’m watching the clock. ⏱⏱I'll share notes in the coming days!✍️✍️ 🥂🍷🎉 What’s everyone else planning to pour tonight?

The English Consumer Forged the Modern Wine World (part 2: Port, Madeira, and Champagne) . . At the end of the previous post, I described how hefty taxes were applied to Bordeaux at the end of the 17th century. This had a couple of effects; Not only did it propel Bordeaux to become a product for the wealthy, but it naturally forced the market to look elsewhere in order to satiate their hunger for wine. . . In the mid 1600's a series of Port shippers began popping up. First Christiano Kopke, then then the company that would become Warre. When Job Bearsley arrived in Portugal in the 1690's and founded what later become Taylor Fladgate, the wine from the area was nothing like it is now. It was not fortified. However, grape spirit was eventually added some years later, the direct result of a need to stabilize the wines for the difficult voyage to the UK. . . In 1703, the Treaty of Methuen gave Portugal beneficial trade agreements which reduced tariffs on their wine while simultaneously helping the demand for British textiles locally. This solidified the position of Portugese wines in the British market. . Madeira also took advantage of favorable trade agreements with Britain, however, initially the island was more of a solid income stream than a source of wine. Early on, the British did not consume as much Madeira as other areas. It was far more popular in the new world colonies like America. But the fact that nearly all Madeira wine merchants were British eventually influenced the demand at home. In the 19th century, high quality Madeira found its way in the cellars of Britain's upper classes and royalty. . . Champagne wines were popular in Britain even before they were sparkling. The British also directly influenced the conversion to sparkling. Not only did they develop glass making techniques that allowed for higher bottle pressure, but many records indicate that in the 1600's, merchants who purchased barrels of wine would add sugar before bottling to cause secondary fermentation. And later on in the 19th century, it was a British demand for low sugar versions of the product that eventually led Champagne to dry styles. . . Cheers . #wine #winehistory

From last weekend: 2015 #chianticlassicoriserva by #baronericasoli , #crostini con #cremadifagioli #livermousse , fried #lambkidneys and #vealliver It's always fun downing a #magnumbottle con my mate Silke. I hadn't had a #chianticlassico in a long time. By chance that one was an excellent choice. Very rich bouquet, lively tannines, yet due to its balance and elegance already a pleasure to drink. From my stay in the villa near #greveinchianti (top left) decades ago I remembered #fagioli being a staple of #tuscanfood and also #crostini coming with a variety of innards. Putting my idea of topping #whitebeanhumus and #cremadifegato with freshly fried liver and kidney into effect took a lot of time and diligence. We were rewarded with a #perfectmatch . #bettinoricasoli didn't shy away from hard work, too. He was involved in #risorgimiento, laid the foundation of #chianticlassico, but never neglected personal beard care.

Meet Mike Redman, our Assistant Winemaker/Cellarhand. After stints as a croupier, waterski instructor and childcare worker, he returned to the family business in 2016 to work alongside his brother Dan. A fortuitous misunderstanding during his first vintage back in the fold has resulted in our latest wine, 2016 Mike’s Blend SCM, and it is a cracker, so thanks Mike! http://bit.ly/MikesBlendSCM

2015 is a vintage for the ages. Ask any winemaker from almost any pocket of the globe, and they’ll bore you to tears waxing rhapsodically about the perfectly balanced ☀️sunny, just wet enough warm summer, the cool dry of the harvest season, but unless you’re a weather 🤓geek (guilty as charged over here!), four years later, you only care about the end product. 🍷🥂🍷🥂 Well, good news: this 2015 Le Volte Dell’Orenellaia, a red blend of 67% Merlot, 13% Sangiovese, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon, is one of the finest examples of the vintage that I’ve had, and is one I have—and will frequently in the future—turn to when I want a versatile wine, but I’m not sure what I’m in the mood for. 🍷🍷🍷🍷🎉 Perfectly focused, you immediately smell ripe black cherries, blackberries. A hint of sun-baked earth and warm pencils, as ridiculous as that sounds. The first sip brings another burst of red and black berries, with underpinnings of dark coffee. On this cold, dreary, rainy wet early Spring day, it tastes like warmth, my summer in Tuscany with my cousins, freedom, long nights under full moons on the patio with my family. Bring it, summer, I’m ready. In the meantime, this will more than do. 🍷👌

En Tomelloso desde la última mitad del siglo XIX comenzaron a emerger las destilerías. En torno al año 1950 había en este municipio 60 destilerías y hasta 100 chimeneas. Actualmente se conservan 19 chimeneas grandes y 13 pequeñas. Al florecer el comercio de vinos🍷entre los países mediterráneos y los del norte de Europa, la destilación alcanza su máximo esplendor. Se utiliza para: 👉 Conservar los vinos durante las largas travesías se añadía a estos alcohol procedente de vinos destilados. 👉 También se vendían aguardientes utilizando como base las holandas, alcoholes finos procedentes de la destilación de vino. Las chimeneas servían para la salida del humo de las grandes calderas 🔥 por su altura ejercían una fuerte aspiración y lo elevaban lo suficiente para que no cayera y ennegreciera todo. ⚒El material utilizado era ladrillo y un mortero especial ya que debía soportar las altas temperaturas (hecho de arena, cal y cemento). Destacan en la construcción de estas torres familias conocidas con los Goig y los Jareño. 🗺 Os dejamos el mapa de las chimeneas de Tomelloso que se pueden visitar. Para saber más: link bio 👆🏻 📷 Ayto.

“Give me a vine and you can make me live on sands,” goes an old Georgian saying. Georgians, however, have much more than sands; they have some of the oldest and most distinct grape-growing terroirs on the planet - where they have cultivated not just vines, but a world-class wine culture.🍷 «Дайте мне виноградную лозу, и вы можете заставить меня жить на песке», - гласит старая грузинская поговорка. У грузин, однако, гораздо больше, чем просто песок. у нас одни из самых старых и богатых минералами терруаров для выращивания винограда на планете, где мы выращиваем не только виноградные лозу , но и культуру вин мирового класса. #winehistory #winelover #georgianwine #грузия #вино

In recent years, the Finger Lakes has become one of the world’s top destinations for wine-lovers.  It’s easy to see why. Hovering 200 miles northwest of Manhattan, the Finger Lakes feel like a universe away: apple orchards, vineyards, hiking trails, rustic red barns, and woodland creatures frolicking in fields.Still, it would be easy to leave the Finger Lakes to the wine bloggers and tourists, but, if we did, we’d be losing a real opportunity to take a deeper dive into how we got to where we are as a nation, as both women and men. March, as we know you know, is Women’s History Month, and the movement to give women the vote — and all of the feminist waves that followed — was born in Seneca Falls. So whether you’re a wine lover, a farm lover, a mountain lover, a lake lover, a history lover, a woman lover or — really any type of sentient human being will do — now is arguably the best time of the year to visit the Finger Lakes. Head over to New York Makers for my recommended itinerary! https://newyorkmakers.com/blogs/magazine/curious-researching-women-s-past-and-present-head-to-the-finger-lakes Photo: Young Lion Brewing’s analyst-turned-hophead Jennifer Newman, maker of iconoclastic beers in a laid-back taproom. #fingerlakes #womenshistory #girlsweekend #beer #brewery #craftbeer #upstateny #iloveny #wine #wines #winemaker #winelover #wineaddict #tastingnotes  #winegeek #winenerd #thirsty #wset #winehistory #terroir #winelife #wineschool #somm #sommlife #winewriter #mywinemoment at Young Lion Brewing

The estate, which had the typical local name of Colombaio, belonged to the Biondi Santi family which achieved one of the best Brunellos of the area from there at the time. Sergio Rossi bought the land in 1976 and completely restructured it respecting its original environment. Shortly afterwards in 1978, he created and marketed the La Gerla brand. At La Gerla, despite big developments and multiple changes, much importance is still given to man and his feelings; listening to what the land murmurs every day, respecting its rhythms and catering to its needs. And maybe it is for this reason that during the last years La Gerla has achieved high scores in the best food and wine guides and in specialized magazines in addition to the praise from wine shops and restaurants. Maybe each of them, when they drink a glass of Brunello La Gerla or Birba, can sense in the bouquet, in addition to the hints of fruits of the forest or rosemary, a little bit of the heart put there by those who work the land. #brunello La Gerla is known and valued for its special elegance and pleasant aromas; extremely aromatic, soft and velvety to taste, aged in the bottle for at least eight months before being made available to consumers. #wine #brunello #montalcino #italy #vineyard #sellingwine #redwine #winetasting #instawine #madeinitaly #winemadeinitaly #weinmadeinitaly #weinonline #onlinewine #onlineshop #winehistory #winedelivery #wineshop #wineexpress #winelovers #drinkwine #italianwine #importexport #importwine #berlinwine #berlinfoodandwine #gastronomy #zyttyberlin #tipberlin at MadeinItaly.Berlin

The history of Pignolo as we know it begins at the end of the ‘70s, when our winemaker Walter Filiputti discovered the two last living plants of this ancient vine in the courtyard of Rosazzo Abbey. ⠀ Starting from those specimens, Walter obtained the first 2200 cuttings which were finally planted in 1981 right in the abbey.

The best pairing with this bad ass red seems like it ought to be a cigarette, a black 1949 Mercury, an electric guitar solo and a 1955 James Dean donning a fitted leather jacket. 😎🚬🎸🤘🍷🔥 The wine is called "19 Crimes: The Uprising" and it pays homage to Australia's "Rum Rebellion" of 1808. This hand-crafted wine is aged for 30 days in rum barrels and is dark with jammy flavors and a smoky finish. Trust us, it smells f***ing awesome. And it tastes pretty damn good too. #wine #vinho #vin #vino #outback #australia #winehistory #winelover #winetime #downunder #jamesdean #badass #lovewine #nomz #cheers #redwine #outlaw #winestagram #winelovers #winetasting

Rosé (roh-ze) The earliest recording of wine being made was actually Rosé. The greeks would dilute red and white grapes together after crushing them with their feet and fermented them in ceramic containers. The result was a slightly off-dry, tannic blush. Today Rosés are most commonly created by reducing the time the juice sits with the grape skins.

Boiled down, winemaking is a series of simple tasks, starting with the crushing of (typically) grapes, and ending with the bottling of juice that has been fermented, and (frequently) clarified and stabilized. 🍷 But in reality, it’s a complex activity requiring an artistic paradigm, scientific mind and a factory robot’s rigor. A winemaker’s level of experience, the culture in which they came from and find themselves in currently, the vineyard’s terroir, the varietals they’re working with, the weather that vintage experienced, their goals in terms of taste, how recently they’ve had coffee or gotten laid, all of these big and little things impact on every action the winemaker decides to perform, and therefore, the final product of the wine. 🍷 Winemakers rarely are in the “business” of wine to “make money.” (That’s good, because there are very few rich winemakers among the 8,700+ winemakers in the U.S. alone, never mind the tens of thousands worldwide). Some see it as avocation, others are continuing a family tradition, some just straight up enjoy it. 🍷 Now, don’t get me wrong, as a lover of tasty wine, I relish nothing more than gulping down a beautifully written but vicious takedown of bad wine on Instagram. One more I don’t have to try! And in private, I’ve been known to blast brands, and even entire regions for just not being my taste, but I generally don’t here (unless it’s just a complete bomb) because taste is subjective and I know how much time and effort these winemakers pour into their craft. I mean, a lemon is a lemon. But whether that lemon tastes good to you? That’s debatable. #winos … how do you decide whether to just post the good news or leave room for both on your feed?
