2015 Piesporter Domherr Urgestein Riesling Spätlese trocken from @reuscher_haart_winery_mosel , Piesport, Mosel, Germany Well, that very nice #moselriesling brings up the problem of how to market german wine once more. Since I already talked about it with #marioschwang when I spent a few days on the vinery in #piesport I leave it at: It's all the #ancientromans fault. That being said I say the wine can easily age a few more years. Personally I love the #kitzel of acidity perceptible on tip of tongue. #sauermachtlustig Yet acidity is just the base of a Moselriesling's complexity. As Urgestein suggests minerality is big in that one. It's silly to see it opposed to fruit. You can learn it the hard way: Lick the stones! I really did that once trying to understand the famous "flintstone" touch of Chablis. It wasn't helpful at all but I still love Chablis. There's a great deal of fruit in a proper #moselriesling anyway. The best way getting to know and understand these wines is going to where they are grown. #moselvalley is incredibly beautiful. I put the #spqr #fridgemagnet in the glass to show off with the bloody #ancientromans once more. Besides these bastards were in Piesport vraiement. #germanwine #piesporterdomherr #riesling #germanriesling #wineandculture #winehistory #deutscherwein #reuscherhaart #winemarketing #lovelypiesport #urgestein #moselwine #mosella
Last night I did a tasting for the African American Alumni Association (my alma mater). It was such a great experience teaching my fellow Blue & White fam about wine. I always try to support at least one black brand, last night’s feature was FLO Brands by @marcusjohnson360. Remember that wine knowledge is power and the only way to learn is to drink 🧡. #huesociety #winebae #wineisthenewblack Tag a friend and share the love. •••••••••••••••••• By @thehuesociety Follow @thehuesociety Follow @sippingsocialite Tag #huesociety • • • • • • • • • #assimilationnotrequired #fortheculture #wineandculture #wineknowledgeiscurrency #winewithme #winenot #wineevents #blackexcellence #blackowned #wineisaboutmemories #winebestie #winetasting #blackwinemakers #winestagram #blackgirlwine #blackandfly #blackandkillingit #winebabe #womenwholovewine #motivatingthemasses #culturalcatalyst #womeninwine #sommelier #blackwinelovers #womeninbusiness #supportblackbusiness #pennstate

Maybe this November day looks rainy and dull but @chiarastuscany we are searching for new and amazing locations to feel cozy and live a Tuscany experience whatever the weather. Stay tuned for a new activity program in the heart of Tuscany Grazie @manufumi for the interesting visit.

Question, what's the date on the oldest bottle of wine you have? Did you know that only 1-2% of wines made are structured to age well, most of those being red. I like to test things so last week I opened a 15 year old white wine, a Muscadet. I was so nervous that it had held it too long but it was GOOD however, I was lucky as many white wines do not age well, actually most wines are not meant to be aged. Truth is, you can cellar anything you want for as long as you want, but the results may not be what you want. Here are a few things to consider when aging a wine: Aging factors include acid, alcohol, sugar, tannin. For whites that means high acid wines like Rieslings, Chenin Blanc, and Champagnes. For reds this includes Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir, Tempranillo, Nebbiolo. Also, dessert wines can age forever! Rose is meant to be drank fresh (usually within 2-3 years) so be mindful of the vintage date. Chardonnay should generally be consumed within 5 years (with the exception of White Burgundy). Merlot can keep about 3-5 year (Fine Bordeaux exempt) Malbec will be good for about 5-10 years. These are general "rules' if you will. It also matters how you like to drink your wine i.e if you like more fruit drink it young but if you like more savory wine let it age a bit. You can also but a case and crack a bottle every few years to taste it at different stages. Nothing is in stone so just use them as guidelines. Happy sipping. #huesociety #assimilationnotrequired #winewednesday #winelessons #wineandculture

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.

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.

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.
