Wine And Flowers

Posted by terrepruitt on March 6, 2020

To say I was out of commission last Friday so I didn’t post a Friday Photo, would be an understatement . . .  but I am back in commission now so here is a pretty little bouquet. This is from back in January at the Big Dog winery. I love flowers. This is a sweet little bouquet. Such great colors, huh?

Give The Gift Of Air

When you aerate a wine you are exposing it to air which allows it to evaporate and oxidate. Some of the compounds and smells evaporate leaving the more pleasant aromas. The oxidation can actually change the taste because certain things in the wine are reacting to oxygen. According to Wine Spectator you can simple aerate a wine by pouring it in a glass or swirling the wine in the glass. Or you can use wine aerator.

This type I first saw at Big Dog Winery. It is cool because you can aerate the wine by pouring it first into the carafe, and then pouring it back into the bottle. Some people love to serve the wine from the bottle. It helps with having to remember what wine it is you are serving because the bottle is right there. If you like you can serve it from the glass carafe itself.

I believe that aerating the wine helps soften it and I find myself enjoying red wine more.

It is a fun process too! Once you become confident that the carafe and bottle won’t tip over. I still like to hold them just to be safe.

Do you know anyone that drink red wine?  Do you drink red wine?  Do you aerate your wine?
