Busting Some Wine Myths!

People from all over the world have come to love the savory experience of sipping wine. There are many methods and preferences that you can use to create it. For thousands of years, many civilizations have enjoyed this beverage. In modern days, there are so many different types of wine that are made all over the world, in places like North and South America, Europe and Australia. The wine industry is so aged and diverse, that there are many myths that people have adopted over the years about it. We’re going to talk about five of them. • The more expensive the wine, the better? WRONG. The cost may more likely come from the brand or the winemaker. Just like many other products, cost isn’t directly proportional to value. Many affordable wines can actually taste much better. • Wine bottles with screw caps are lesser in quality? NOPE. There is no set way that wine bottles should be covered. Screw caps are now used on all different qualities and brands of wine. The screw cap doesn’t even alter the aging ability of the wine either, studies show. • White wine for fish and red wine for meat? INCORRECT. Again, like many of the other myths, this is no set rule. Yes, fish can pair up very well with a lot of different white wines, but it can also pair well with various red wines too. Many different meats and foods can pair well and bring out the best savory experience with both types of wine. • The wine critics always know best? UH UH. These professionals taste various types of wine and recommend the wins that should be matched with different foods or occasions. You must remember however, that they’re human too. You can listen to their advice, but you don’t have to live by it. Remember, it’s all a matter of taste perception. • All wine gets better with age? WE DOUBT. Yes, many of them do, but only if they are stored properly! If a wine is stored in incorrect temperature of humidity, its quality will not increase, it will decrease as time goes by.
