The Vine Basics Part 1️⃣
.
Starting from the bottom...
Today we are beginning at vine selection. There are many species of vine but today we will only cover the most important ones to modern day winemaking.
.
🌿Vine Species .
.
➖Vitis vinifera: This covers the main Euasian species and traditionally been used in winemaking.There are between 5,000-10,000 types.
.
➖American Vine: Hardly used to make wine as the grapes have unattractive characters. There are 3 species to North America and are resistant to Phylloxera.
.
Phylloxera is a fatal Pest to V. vinifera🧟‍♀️. (Will get more into detail in part 2️⃣)
.
🔺Many areas in the world are effected by Phylloxera and it has no cures. If one doesn’t just want to crossing fingers or only plant in unaffected areas, there is a great solution. If one uses American vine as rootstock and then V.vinifera vines are grafted onto them, it’s a win-win. This combination allows the protection of American Vines but taste of European Vines👆💛 .
.
So next time your out in the vineyards ask about rootstock🙌 It’s always a interesting topic and one can learn a lot about a estate this way. .
.
Watchout for Part 2️⃣ there we get into detail about this horrible Pest 🐲

Why Do I Love Wine?
.
Today You will learn a bit about me and how I fell in love with WINE culture🍷💕
.
I’ve always been a creative person, loving the arts over science for most of my life. In the beginning that was expressed through painting and later design. So much so that I studied and graduated in Urban and Regional Planning 🤗
.
Yet nothing ever captured my interest like Wine did.... .
I remember working in the tasting room and finding it’s fascinating how my knowledge could be passed on. Not through a lecture or speech but by interacting together with the Wine. It’s amazing to see how someone’s eyes light up with knowledge as they learn something new in a fun way!
.
Once joining the cellars I discovered the art behind making the wine. I even learned to love science again (there is lots of science in winemaking)! How much of both soul and physical labour is needed. .💪
.
My fascination starts from the moment those vines are planted until that last glass is drunk. I love how it brings people together, I love how it’s an art, I love how it pushes me to learn. Sometimes it’s hard and the days are long but I would rather be doing this then anything else in the world.💋

What are Tannins?
.
This is a component that is found mostly in red wine❗️I always describe Tannins as the feeling you have on the front of your teeth/gums when drinking red wine. It’s mostly extracted from the skins but you get it from other aspects too.
.
It’s important to be aware of tannins in Wine as they can completely change the feeling of what your drinking🍷. .
.
Unripe Tannins tends to be more aggressive, while ripe ones are more textural richness. Plus they also change with age⏳! It’s a part of wine that’s really difficult to understand but once you start to pay attention it becomes easier!
.
Happy Tuesday 😘

Sweetness🍭
.
Today we are discussing why some wines are just sweeter then others⁉️
.
The reason is.........
SUGAR💕
The more of it you have in Wine the the sweeter it becomes🍓 Very Simple!
.
There are 3 ways to create sugar in the wine:
.
1️⃣Residual sugar-typically refers to the sugar remaining after fermentation stops. Natural🌱
.
2️⃣The addition of unfermented must. This means adding sweetness back into the bottle though juice
.
3️⃣Ordinary table sugar added to the wine😒
.
Below are the multiple levels one uses to describe sweetness in a tasting🍷🍯
.
🌕Dry
☀️Off-Dry
⭐️Medium Dry
🌟Medium Sweet
✨Sweet
⚡️Luscious .
.
When To Go SWEET❓
.
A sweet wine is a amazing option for cheese! If you really want to show off pair with something that is already really sweet itself🍫! Stunning combo
.
Have a SWEET Thursday 😘

👵🏻👴🏻 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I was selling coffee once, and I saw this really happy elder couple who were smiling brightly, holding hands and parading a few steps in front of me.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I smiled to myself at the sight of this. The old man must’ve seen me smiling, for he suddenly exclaimed proudly, “WE’RE IN LOVE!” And the old lady beside him giggled adoringly ❤️

I have so many doubts about myself, and I’m so afraid of everything. I hate that I’m always just obsessing over the things that I am not. I’m scared of this world that’s constantly advancing. I’m scared that I’m just stuck in this room, inside my head, barely moving.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
But that’s the thing about humans, is it not? We start off with nothing but we grow and experience life, and learn to be at peace with ourselves. This might be a little deep but I know almost everyone feels this way sometimes. I’m scared of posting this too, but 💩 it ya know, we have a platform and we should relate. We need to normalise topics like these, and you need not be afraid because there are many people that’s still trying to figure out their lives at age 50. We all have the rest of our lives to figure it out, but the most important focus is to live in the moment and be happy 🌻

Okay that was the last of the puns. Here’s the premise - Dachstein Mountain: I just came out of the the Giant Ice Cave where my feet was frozen from the water entering my shoes, so here in this picture, they were soggy and wet :c
