Wine is History in a Bottle

Wine is History in a Bottle

When enjoying a glass of wine, have you ever pondered its origins? Sure, you consider the color, what aromas you pick up when you swirl the wine, what the wine feels like on your palate, and where it was made. But have you thought about what it is you are really drinking? Every time you take a sip from your glass, you experience a plant that has its origins in the ancient Middle East.

Tannins

Tannins

“In vino veritas, in aqua sanitas.” (In wine there is truth, in water there is health.) – Pliny the Elder

What are they and what do they do?
We have all heard about tannin. The term is frequently tossed around in wine circles, but most people aren't really sure exactly what it means. Let's delve into this a bit. Last year was Wine 101; we're now beginning the advanced courses!
