Wines from the Marche: serious matter

Wines from the Marche: serious matter | Wine, history and culture... | Scoop.it

Wine is a serious matter in the Marche. There are roughly 14,200 estates in the region, working with about 17,000 hectares of vines. Although cooperatives do exist, wine production is very much a family affair. Roughly 80% of the Marche’s wines are DOC or DOCG, a fact that does not guarantee quality in and of itself (individual producer skill is important) but illustrates the region’s potential. In fact, the region is blessed with many high-quality native grape varieties and unique terroirs. Even better, the average level of quality is quite high, which means that finding a truly bad wine is difficult. A handful of overoaked and rustic reds are still being made, but for the most part the Marche’s wines deserve to be on shopping lists of wine lovers everywhere. [...]

Divine Vintage: Following the Wine Trail from Genesis to the Modern Age

Divine Vintage: Following the Wine Trail from Genesis to the Modern Age | Wine, history and culture... | Scoop.it

Winner of the Gourmand Wine Books prize for 'Best Drinks Writing Book' in the UK
A fascinating journey through ancient wine country that reveals the drinking habits of early Christians, from Abraham to Jesus.
Wine connoisseur Joel Butler teamed up with biblical historian Randall Heskett for a remarkable adventure that travels the biblical wine trail in order to understand what kinds of wines people were drinking 2,000 to 3,500 years ago. Along the way, they discover the origins of wine, unpack the myth of Shiraz, and learn the secrets of how wine infiltrated the biblical world. This fascinating narrative is full of astounding facts that any wine lover can take to their next tasting, including the myths of the Phoenician, Greek, Roman, and Jewish wine gods, the emergence of kosher wine, as well as the use of wine in sacrifices and other rites. It will also take a close a look at contemporary modern wines made with ancient techniques, and guide the reader to experience the wines Noah (the first wine maker!) Abraham, Moses and Jesus drank.

Is that the dull thud of egos clashing I hear?

 

Wine power-house Robert Parker is suing his ex-contributor Antonio Galloni for withholding work. Galloni claims that it was incomplete when he left and wouldn't do justice to the region.

 

With the background of a multi-million dollar takeover of Parker's Wine Advocate publicastion, and Galloni moving on to set up his own competitor, there's a lot at stake here.

 

This article is well worth a read, providing background to the entertaining fight to follow. However it works out, I predict blood on the cellar floor.

Get the skinny on calories in wine, from Wine Folly.

 

Are bubbles really the lowest calorie wine? Do reds make you rounder than whites? It's all wrapped up in a simple graphic.

Maureen, at least it's more than twice the fun of sugary, bubbly, brown water.
