All You Need to Know About Wine Bottles

We often give a lot of thought to the color and character of the wine in a bottle, but not so much thought to the bottles themselves. Perhaps you think they’re all more or less the same? Far from being uniform across all wine types, the bottles we drink from have their own characters too, with many different designs...  Continue »

The Opening Ceremony - How to Open a Bottle of Wine

Drinking wine, especially good wine, is akin to a sort of ritual.

The Perfect Burgundy Wine Glass

In August we posted a blog about how to choose the right wine glass. As we reflected on that blog post we came to see it as an educational piece covering wine glasses across the spectrum, illustrating many types of wine glasses for all different types of wines and wine varietals. Not really burgundy specific. So we sat down again with the team at Elden to re-examine this issue from a Burgundy perspective...  Continue »

Wine Labels

Wine affects us on many levels, often very subtly. It makes us feel things both in terms of what we see when we buy it, and what we experience when drinking it.

How to Grow Plump Wine Grapes for a Deep and Complex Homemade Wine

Although wine can be made from any type of grape, wine grapes are in a class of their own if you’re looking to produce a rich and complex wine. They’re smaller, full of seeds, and have thicker skins, and while they may not be as tasty as table grapes when eaten fresh, they also have a higher sugar and juice content, making them ideal for turning into wine.  Continue »

Good wine, like many things in life, gets better with age. Wine is also an investment – of time, money, and love, which should be protected, and stored properly. Plus, storing wine is really part and parcel of the hobby of wine – of course, we drink some wines straight away, but there’s a real joy in discovering which wines benefit the most from some cellar time, and exactly what subtle changes we can pick up. So for all these reasons, it’s handy to know the basics of wine storage.  Continue »
