Cheers to life; open a bottle of wine

IMG_0898[1]Once someone has said to me that you have to learn to appreciate wine … Although I can not imagine a life without wine 😉 anymore, it is certainly true … By tasting different wines you discover not only true gems, you taste a difference between wines and it comes to really appreciate and enjoy if you can taste a nice wine in your glass. Without even having any sense of wines you learn to trust your taste, as I mentioned earlier that you can develop flavor. Most wine drinkers start as rosé drinkers at parties , dinners , barbecues and in summertime on a pleasant terrace. Over time, you discover that white and red wines still have just a little more qachet and then discover the real thing and start tasting. You will no longer put up with a bottle of a few dollars from the grocery store … This is not to say that a good bottle of wine needs to be expensive. I like to make a sport out of it to finding good wines that cost between 5 and 15 euro. In the winter I prefer to drink red wine, although a nice soft Chardonnay at dinner always tastes good. Obviously true to remind is ‘enjoy , drink responsibly’, I am convinced that if you open a bottle to really taste you will drink much more aware. We rarely drink as a couple the whole bottle empty in an evening. We pull the bottle vacuum  and enjoy one or two days later the second half. My latest discovery is; Belconte Salento Rosso and a true jewel Mc William’s Hayfield Semillon Chardonnay. Soon we will again taste different wines, the findings I will share again, keep an eye on my blog for information. Do you have any wine suggestions for me please let me know …
So for small successes  draw a nice bottle of wine and enjoy!
Cheers to life !

High Wine

We like to celebrate a party and are therefore always looking for an opportunity to socialize with lovely friendly people because together you make beautiful memorable moments.  Searching for something different to do we got the idea to organize a High Wine. The only terms of invitation naturally is that you invite people who appreciate a good glass of wine. Wine specialist Maison d’ Elfant not only organizes wine tastings but also comes to location , such as your home , to keep a wine tasting with a group of minimum 10 persons.  Because we went to Italy on holiday we thought it would be nice to stay in Italian atmosphere and fill the evening with tasting Italian wines and matching antipasti. Adjusted accordingly they offer the Giro d’Italia to where you will be introduced to 7 wines with matching small dishes. We started the evening with bubbles of Astoria Lounge Prosecco Cold Wine 9.5, about this one I wrote before praising it, accompanied by delicious green organic olives of Biagi. This was followed by the white wine: Garofoli Verdicchio di Castelli di Jesi ” Serra del Conte ” with crackers Italiani classicists with delicious crema di tonno . The third was the white wine Pinot Grigio Miopasso Bio I found myself quite delicious. The snack , Pesto Giallo with picos , I found less to fit in taste . Then we went over to red , the Miopasso Primitivo di Puglia with Salame al Barolo with fig bread , both tasty but not very special.

The second red wine of the evening was the Cortorosso Trilogia di Corte Viola with Testun al Barolo, both the wine and the cheese tasted particularly good. Then came to me the perfect combination of the evening ; Castello di Meleto Chianti Riserva with Parmigiano Reggiano with fig-port-jelly. A full delicious wine sublime went along with the top Parmigiano Reggiano cheese. We ended the tasting with a good combined dolci ; Galleria Vino Spumante Dolce Rosso with Italian nougat with cherry Amarene, I love nougat and this is now my favorite flavor. The wine tasting was successful and we voted for our favorites. We ordered several bottles, my favorites Cold Prosecco Wine, Pinot Grigio Miopasso Bio, Cortorosso Trilogia di Corte Viola and natural Castello di Meleto Chianti Riserva!  Silvie from Maison d’ Elfant made ​​sure that everything was possible and really worth to organize.

We decided to continue to drink the Corte Rosso and use the action 6 +2. Because I knew we were with a group that likes to enjoy until late in the evening I had prepared myself some antipasti dishes  so we could reminisce cozy even after the wine tasting. All in all a great evening to remember!
