The Cité du Vin, a modern museum build to tell the history of wine and civilization. It’s highly interactive. I was expecting the museum to be French or even Bordeaux-centric, but on the opposite, they did a tremendous job demonstrating the importance of wine and culture worldwide. A must-do during a visit to Bordeaux #bordeaux #citeduvin #citeduvinbordeaux #wineandcivilization #winesoftheworld #wineandculture #wset #wsetdiploma #wsetdiplomastudent

Manila Grüner Veltliner with plenty of ripe stone fruits and high in viscosity. The grapes were destemmed and without being crushed, fermented in tank for 13 days. After fermentation the grapes were pressed and aged in three small barrels for 10 months. The wine was bottled without filtration or any added sulphur. #wineoftheday #wineoftheheart #winelovers #instawine #ilovewine #agoodglassofwine #winefortheheart #vinogram #redwine #winerylovers #finewine #winetasting #wineo #winetime #sommelier #winepassion #wineenthusiast #winetime #wineoclock #instagood #winealwaysinviting #wineandwriting #wineandculture #wine_source #wineclubbing #wine #wine .loverss #winecommunity #thegrapevinesocial #learnwinedaily #enoblogger

Black wine makers I presented at yesterday’s Black Restaurant Week event. Two of these brands are made by Women. The other wines I poured are distributed by a black owned company (there are less than 10 black distributors). I believe that drinking wine is the best way to learn about it, therefore I don’t suggest ONLY drinking Black brands. However, if you think about it, you’ve probably been drinking other brands since you became interested in wine (and that’s ok). But as more of us get into the industry, the more support we need from people who look like us. Hue Society is about creating platforms that encourage this support, bring awareness and educate consumers in a industry where we are grossly underrepresented. A win for you is a win for me, is a wine for all of us😊. @andrehmack @mcbridesisters @aslina_wines @nbiyela @thehuesociety @blackrestaurantweek @branwarwines Tag a friend and share the love. •••••••••• By @thehuesociety Follow @thehuesociety Follow @sippingsocialite Tag #huesociety •••••••••• #huesociety #assimilationnotrequired #fortheculture #winewithme #winenot #wineandculture #wineevents #blackexcellence #blackowned #blackwine #wineisaboutmemories #learnwine #winebestie #wine #winetasting #winebusiness #blackwinemakers #wineallday #winestagram #blackgirlwine #blackandfly #blackandkillingit #blackrestaurantweek #mcbridesisters #blackgirlmagic
The Colazzi Toscana IGT is 20 hectares in the hearth of Toscana, belonging to the Marchesi di Frescobaldi family. Much emphasis is laid on careful and selective work in the vineyard, the harvest is done by hand. With Merlot 21%, Petit Verdot 4%, Cabernet Sauvignon 50% and Cabernet Franc 25% the wine shows a wonderfully seductive deep dark red and fragrance. On the palate a stunner of ripe berries, black chocolate and balsamic vinegar. Fine tannins, wonderful elegance with incredibly long finish. #colazzi #wineoftheday #wineoftheheart #winelovers #instawine #ilovewine #agoodglassofwine #winefortheheart #vinogram #redwine #winerylovers #finewine #winetasting #wineo #winetime #sommelier #winepassion #wineenthusiast #winetime #wineoclock #instagood #winealwaysinviting #wineandwriting #wineandculture #wine_source #wineclubbing #wine #wine .loverss #winecommunity #thegrapevinesocial #learnwinedaily #enoblogger

South African wine tasting in DC for @nubianhueman ’s 5 year anniversary. South African wines have intense flavor profiles and great value however, these wines didn’t become popular until the 80’s and 90’s after the end of apartheid. Believe it or not though, this rich land still struggles with diversity in the wine industry. Only about 3% of winemakers are black and less than that are women. Strides have been made but there’s a long way to go. Among South African wines is its own signature grape called Pinotage (a hybrid from Pinot Noir and Cinsault grapes). Pinotage is a rich red wine with high tannins and a earthy, smoky taste (that most people either love or hate). Nevertheless, it’s definitely worth trying at least once. Other common grapes are Cabernet Sauvignon, Chenin Blanc, Sauvingnon Blanc and Chardonnay. I happen to love a good Pinotage but it HAS to be made well. What’s your favorite South African wine?

A complex Amarone from 2004 with Corvina and Corvinone 70% - Rondinella 20% - Croatina 5% - Oseleta 5%. Beautiful deep and impenetrable ruby red wine. Clear and consistent for the nose, very intense, broad and fine. Aromas of balsamic, ripe cherries, plums, berries, spiced with star anise, cinnamon, cardamom, black pepper, vanilla and ginger up in the wine. Moreover also an aroma of cocoa, chocolate, almonds, toasted hazelnut and pipe tobacco. #amarone #wineoftheday #wineoftheheart #winelovers #instawine #ilovewine #agoodglassofwine #winefortheheart #vinogram #redwine #winerylovers #finewine #winetasting #wineo #winetime #sommelier #winepassion #wineenthusiast #winetime #wineoclock #instagood #winealwaysinviting #wineandwriting #wineandculture #wine_source #wineclubbing #wine #wine .loverss #winecommunity #thegrapevinesocial #learnwinedaily #enoblogger

In honor of #blackbreastfeedingweek I decided to answer a question I get all the time; is it ok to drink while nursing. The answer is yes! Research says as long as your baby is at least 3 months old, you can have that glass if you want mama. Now that doesn’t mean go crazy but a glass or two won’t affect your milk. A general rule is as long as you don’t feel tipsy you should be fine. The bigger concern is being able to function properly while drinking so make sure safety is first. Also, this is not to be confused with drinking while pregnant. *This is not medical advice and should not be taken as such. Balance is key so enjoy sis, mmmmk?

Very excited for tomorrow evening’s Borderless Wine Symposium. @peterweltman ’s approach seems to dovetail with much of what I’m reading in @kevinbegos book, Tasting the Past. These ways of looking at wine, through lenses that are so much broader than an Instagram filter, are somehow thrilling and feel very necessary right now. If you don’t already have a ticket, the link is ⬆️ in my profile. It should be $20 well spent. Plus, you’ll get to hang out with @dmhparis @kristakscruggs @nicole.hakli and @lagmw. Not bad for an August Monday. #borderlesswine #winelover #wineandculture #historyoftheworld #worldofwine #mondaymotivation #winelife #repost
Argentiera 2015 from Tenuta Argenteria in the notorious village of Bolgheri. The Doc Bolgheri Superiore presents rich and silky taste whose grapes come from the most dedicated vineyards of Tenuta Argentiera. The long fining in French oak barrique, the structure of Cabernet Sauvignon and the unique terroir of Tenuta Argenitera, make this wine one of the highest expressions of the Bolgheri Area. The grapes are and-picked and carefully selected and they are found at an altitude of between 180 and 200 meters (590-660 feet). The whole grapes fall into tanks below by force of gravity. The 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot and 10% Petit Verdot were produced separately. Fermentation and maceration occurred in stainless steel tanks for about 25-30 days at a controlled temperature not above 28-30° C. At the palate this wine offers aromas of ripe blackberry, bell pepper and a hint of coconut. Further on you can taste black-currant jam, licorice and a touch of espresso alongside. Good balance between acidity and tannins. #argentiera2015 #wineoftheday #wineoftheheart #winelovers #instawine #ilovewine #agoodglassofwine #winefortheheart #vinogram #redwine #winerylovers #finewine #winetasting #wineo #winetime #sommelier #winepassion #wineenthusiast #winetime #wineoclock #instagood #winealwaysinviting #wineandwriting #wineandculture #wine_source #wineclubbing #wine #wine .loverss #winecommunity #thegrapevinesocial #learnwinedaily #enoblogger

Today I got the chance to taste an old boy again from 1987 - Brunello di Montalcino, Azienda Agricola San Filippo. Of course I didn’t have to expect the typical ruby color with powerful and complex aroma, but nevertheless I was surprise by the bouquet this wine delivered. After 30 years still reveals a very good balance between tannins and acidity as well as elegance of tobacco and slightly aromatic herbs. The old boy did a great job! #brunellodimontalcino #aziendaagricolasanfilippo #wineoftheday #wineoftheheart #winelovers #instawine #ilovewine #agoodglassofwine #winefortheheart #vinogram #redwine #winerylovers #finewine #winetasting #wineo #winetime #sommelier #winepassion #wineenthusiast #winetime #wineoclock #instagood #winealwaysinviting #wineandwriting #wineandculture #wine_source #wineclubbing #wine #wine .loverss #winecommunity #thegrapevinesocial #learnwinedaily
An excellent 100% Chenin Blanc from Louis Bovard from la Côte, near Lausanne (CH). Alcoholic fermentation is made in very old barrels In order to preserve the maximum fruit, the malolactic fermentation is not carried out. Aging in barrels for 10 months with stirring of the lees Nose on fresh fruits (pineapple) and citrus fruits. In the palate are notes of green apples and tangerine with a touch of curry in the final. A wine to discover.

James Suckling rated this wine with 98 points: “This has a perfect nose of blackberry, tar, black pepper, thyme, cloves and rose petal. Full body and firm and very silky and polished tannins. The finish goes on for minutes. Best ever. Great class. 92% Carmenere and 8% Petit Verdot. Drink in 2019 but so gorgeous now.” It is definitely a nice surprise from Chile - a wine with juicy acidity, generous volume, and flavors in line with its aromatic profile, ending with a long and elegant finish. With a nice piece of meat is just a dream. Try it out! #purpleangel #wineofchile #wineoftheday #wineoftheheart #winelovers #instawine #ilovewine #agoodglassofwine #winefortheheart #vinogram #redwine #winerylovers #finewine #winetasting #wineo #winetime #sommelier #winepassion #wineenthusiast #winetime #wineoclock #instagood #winealwaysinviting #wineandwriting #wineandculture #wine_source #wineclubbing #wine #wine .loverss #winecommunity #thegrapevinesocial #learnwinedaily
With all the conversation going on about pesticides in lieu of the Monsanto defeat (the gentleman who won his case against the pesticide company causing him cancer), I thought now would be a good time to talk about organic wine and farming. So here's a basic rundown of what you need to know regarding drinking organic. *The information i'm sharing is meant to inform, use it as you need* Organic wine is wine that is made with organically grown grapes meaning without the use of pesticides. Essentially, organic wine is wine made in the way that our ancestors made it before World War II when pesticides became widely used. There used to be this perception pushed that organic wine was somehow lesser in quality than non. Today, modern research on organic growing has made it possible to produce both high yields and high quality without putting toxic substances on to the vines or into the soil and water. When you drink organic wine, you are drinking wine that is free of pesticide and chemical residues, and you are voting with your dollars to support wine that has been grown in a way that actually enhances the health of the environment. Why do we care? I think that's a personal decision but here are some facts to consider. Grapes are one of crops that receive the heaviest application of pesticides – millions of tons are sprayed on grape vines each year. Wine grapes receive even higher levels of pesticides than table grapes Many organic wines are grown using something called integrated pest management, which is planting companion plants that attract beneficial insects to naturally reduce the populations of insects that will damage grapes. Drinking organic wine reduces your exposure to harmful chemicals, reduces the impact of pesticide use on the people who grow the grapes (workers face much more exposure to harmful chemicals) reduces the threat to groundwater contamination and helps to promote biodiversity. As for winemakers, fortunately, more and more questioning the “conventional” wisdom of applying massive amounts of poison to our fruits and vegetables. It is costly to become "certified" organic however, lots of brands practice organic farming without the labe
An outstanding wine from Valle central de Tarija, Santa Ana la vieja and Santa Ana la nueva in Bolivia. The surprising 100% Cabernet Franc reveals notes of fresh red pepper, mixed with aromas of ripe berries - raspberry and redcurrant stand out together with subtle hints of chocolate obtained from its oak aging. In the palate is pleasant and elegant with moderate tannins with a finish of cherry and plum.

Prinsi, Metodo Classico Brut a fresh and elegant bubbly from Piedmont. The grapes are vinified in white and the fermentation is partly in stainless steel tanks and partly in wooden casks. Degorgement is made once the wine reaches an optimal ripening laying on the yeasts. Deep white with pink reflections. Aroma of raspberries and ribes with light hints of ripe fruits. #wineoftheday #wineoftheheart #winelovers #instawine #ilovewine #agoodglassofwine #winefortheheart #vinogram #redwine #winerylovers #finewine #winetasting #wineo #winetime #sommelier #winepassion #wineenthusiast #winetime #wineoclock #instagood #winealwaysinviting #wineandwriting #wineandculture #wine_source #wineclubbing #wine #wine .loverss #winecommunity #thegrapevinesocial #learnwinedaily
Sometime around mid-August each year, Italy witnesses a prolific meteor shower in its skies (it is called as the Perseids Meteor Shower). Over the years the wineries started organizing wine tastings during this period. The event came to be known as ‘Calici di Stelle’ which literally means “Wine Under the Stars”.

Barbaresco “Roncaglie” from Poderi Colla 2009 has a deep ruby color with brightening edge. Typical Nebbiolo notes of cherries, dried plums, nuts and raisins, mixed with an interesting spicy undergrowth. Classic dry on the palate, with delicate, already ripe tannins. #wineoftheday #wineoftheheart #winelovers #instawine #ilovewine #agoodglassofwine #winefortheheart #vinogram #redwine #winerylovers #finewine #winetasting #wineo #winetime #sommelier #winepassion #wineenthusiast #winetime #wineoclock #instagood #winealwaysinviting #wineandwriting #wineandculture #wine_source #wineclubbing #wine #wine .loverss #winecommunity #thegrapevinesocial #learnwinedaily
Galatrona 2015 is a fantastic wine with 100% Merlot grape from Petrolo production located between Florence and Arezzo. The grapes are manually harvest and later on but on a skin maceration for over 15 days. Spontaneous malolactic fermentation in wood. Maturation in French oak barrique, a third new, for about 18 months. Constant batonnage of the fine lees for the first 6 months. Intense elegant wine with great structure and complexity, lovely balance between acidity, fruit and tannins. A great wine, beyond the grape varietal it’s made from, must talk of the piece of land it came from. Beyond being mainly good, it has to be a classic in its own way. Robert Parker defines this wine as “one of the best Merlots made in Italy (definitely in the top five) and this vintage keeps the banner flying high. The 2015 Galatrona is luscious, soft, soothing and ever-so intense.” RP96. Galatrona 2015 appointed n°2 wine of the world by James Suckling during the “Great Wines of the World 2017” in Hong Kong. James Suckling describes this wine with “Terrific aromas of violets, roses and raspberries with hints of strawberries and brown sugar. Full body. Phenomenal layers of focused fruit and polished velvety tannins.” #galatrona2015 #tuscanywines #wineoftheday #wineoftheheart #winelovers #instawine #ilovewine #agoodglassofwine #winefortheheart #vinogram #redwine #winerylovers #finewine #winetasting #wineo #winetime #sommelier #winepassion #wineenthusiast #winetime #wineoclock #instagood #winealwaysinviting #wineandwriting #wineandculture #wine_source #wineclubbing #wine #wine .loverss #winecommunity #thegrapevinesocial

We missed #winewednesday yesterday but here's a #thristythursday post for you. Since my girls over at @swirlsuite are covering canned wines this week, we are going to join the theme. Canned wine is all the rage these days esp for summer time but don't worry they are just as effective for fall. canned juice is dope for many reasons but here's 5 reasons to love wine in a can. 1. Wine in a can is super convenient. Perfect for the pool area where glass isn't allowed. Perfect for trails or hiking (celebratory toast at the top anyone) and perfect for the park and sneaking into the movies. 2. Canned wines give you the opportunity to taste different styles of wine without having to open the whole bottle. Super easy If you just want to enjoy a glass or two. Perfect for drinking alone and nursing mama approved 3. He wants red, she want rose, oh no! If you're in a group setting and can't decide what to drink, everybody grab a can! Now everyone will enjoy individual wines of their preference. 4. They are environmentally friendly, easy to dispose of and easy to recycle. 5. They are smaller than bottles and lighter thus easier to carry. More space in you bag, not to mention they are easily disguised since they look cans of soda. A tip though, although the wine is in a can it is still best tasted in a glass or cup (you can smell from the can and that where most of your flavor comes from). So there you have it try it out, you might just love it.

100% Syrah of Côte Rôtie - an organic wine from the Corps de loup production. This vintage combines the strength and complexity of old vines as well as the freshness and fruitiness of the youngest. Dark robe and in the palate comes forward on clear black cherry fruit with an insistent wrap around of oak and tannins, the oak.

If you're like me and prefer your dessert in a glass then you'll find this post pretty sweet. I could go on forever about dessert wine but today we will just talk about a few different styles. There a 5 basic types of dessert wine including: late harvest, ice wine, fortified, dried grape and noble rot. I'll break them down quickly. (We will discuss pairings later). Late Harvest: Basically means the grapes were left on the vine well past normal picking times. The longer a grape is left on the vine the sweeter it becomes. These wines are succulent and concentrated and known for their golden color. They can be light-full body and slightly sweet to very sweet depending on the grape. Ice Wine: Late Harvest wines that are requires very cold temps and are picked when the grapes are frozen. Part of the reason Ice Wine is so expensive is because of the labor involved in picking those frozen grapes and squeezing sometimes just a drop of the concentrated juice. Rieslings are a favorite to make Ice Wines due to their high acidity. Fortified Wines: Wines such as Port (Portugal) , Sherry (Spain) , Marsala (Italy) and Madeira (Portugal) are made by adding alcohol to the fermentation process. The addition (usually Brandy) stops the fermentation leaving high sugar and high alcohol levels. Dried Grape: This technique is used to make wines like Amarone which have a more raisin-ed taste. The grapes can be left on the vine or laid flat to dry on straw mats. These wines are very concentrated and are usually characterized by their "baked" flavors. Noble Rot: Also know as botriytis, is a fungus that grows on the grapes and shrivels them up. Ok, I admit that sounds disgusting but the end result is so good because it causes the grapes to dehydrate while maintaining their sweetness levels.It also adds a distinct honey like flavor to the wines. Winemakers pray for the stars to align and the fungus God's to shine on them. If you've ever had Sauternes from France then you know how delicious that shrivel is! Dessert wines are best enjoyed with foods that equally as sweet or salty foods. And remember, the best way to learn about wine is to drink it 🤪. #huesociety #wineandcultu

Wine Bestie! Here we have a late harvest, a Sauternes and Banyuls. Three different styles of sweet wine. Check us out for #winewednesday as i break down the different sweet wines and pairings. Tonight I tried the Late Harvest White Blend with my strawberry cake (see IG story). Turned out pretty good. When pairing dessert and desert wine you’re trying to match sweetness levels. This was cool, neither overwhelmed the other which was the goal. Remember, the only way to learn is to try. What’s your favorite kind of dessert wine?
