DID YOU KNOW?

Since the late 19th century, Thanksgiving had traditionally been celebrated on the final Thursday in November. But in 1939, Roosevelt's seventh year in office, that last Thursday fell on November 30. And that left a mere 24 days of shopping time between Thanksgiving and Christmas.

Retailers believed this would lead to less money spent on holiday gifts, and would therefore hurt the economy (and, of course, their own bottom lines). The solution seemed obvious — the date should be moved one week earlier, to Thursday, November 23. Roosevelt agreed, and announced on August 15, 1939, that he would do just that, with an executive proclamation.

For the Last couple of weeks we been asked the following Questions?

How long should I store my wine?

Most of the wines you buy will be for everyday drinking and you don't need to worry about drink dates. If your wine is designed to be matured, the best way to find out is by tasting it. If you don't want to be disappointed, the best thing is to consult a drinking dates guide - you can find them on decanter.com or in Hugh Johnson's annual pocket wine book.

Where should I store my wine?

Not in the kitchen or garage! The temperatures are too variable.
If you are going to store it at home, make sure it is in a cool, dark place with a constant temperature. The ideal temperature range is between 45° F and 65° F.The wines should be stored lying down and avoid any vibrations.

as always you are welcome to submit any questions!

Entertaining with wine - FAQ

I want to take a bottle of wine to a dinner party. What should I take?

We've all chosen something with a nice label or bought on price to impress our friends.
It's difficult to know what to take so avoid the major brands and speak to your local wine merchant. Don't buy something too expensive if your hosts will squirrel it away for drinking when no one else is around. And yes, it's ok to take a wine that has a screwcap! Perhaps find out what's on the menu and bring something to match.

What can I serve as an aperitif other than Champagne?

A light, fruity white such as a sparkling Moscato d'Asti, a medium German Riesling or a Fino sherry are all perfect as an alternative to bubbly.

How many glasses of wine will I get from a bottle?
That depends on the size of the bottle and the glasses, but in general, you should work on five-six glasses per 75cl bottle.

HOW TO CHOOSE A WINE GLASS!

What glasses do you need to make the most of your wine?

Marilyn in a glass
Glasses must have their curves in all the right places. The bowl must be round to help aerate the wine and let its aroma develop. It must also taper inwards towards the top, to stop its precious essence escaping.

Crystal clear
Keep glasses plain, simple and colourless – you don't want to hide a prized claret, you want to enjoy it in every sense. A slight pattern or fluting can make Champagne more intriguing, but leave it at that.

Easily lead
The brilliance of a wine is further highlighted by good quality lead crystal. You can tell the quality by the number of facets that are reflected and how thin the glass is.

Upholding standards
One size can fit all when it comes to wine tasting and smaller glasses are usually favoured. There is one style of glass recognised as the benchmark, the ISO (international Standards Organisation) glass. The stem is about 5cm tall and the bowl 10cm (at its broadest 6.5cm wide).

One size does not fit all
Austrian glassmakers Riedel would agree. They live to reinvent the glass. They maintain that you need a different glass for every grape, style and, even region. Form most definitely follows function, and their glasses are also very pretty.

Living it large
The larger the glass, the more exposure the wine has to air, thus awakening the hidden aromatic depths and balancing the tannic power and the fruit. The younger (and more closed) the wine, the bigger the bowl that is required.

Tongue service
First impressions are lasting especially where wine is concerned. Give your wine a head start by putting it in the right receptacle – the distinctive curve on the lip of a Riedel Riesling or Pinot Noir glass guides the wine to the tip of the tongue, where fruit and sweetness is picked up, balancing the varieties' naturally crisp acidity.

Central administration
Again from the gospel according to Riedel, Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon glasses should encourage the flow of the wine to the centre of the tongue, to balance the fruit and acidity.

Magic flutes
Chuck out your Champagne coupes: they make wine lose its fizz and let the aromas wane. The flute – a tall bowl, tapered in at the top – is the only way to drink fizz. And lead crystal glass not only looks good but encourages bubbles – a wide, tapered bowl keeps them small and in several streams, released slowly.

Plastic fantastic
Principles can be relaxed when the setting calls for it. Let the glass match the occasion: plastic flutes at Henley and Badminton will do nicely. Just get the wine right: persistent aromas and some sweetness help keep the character from fading as the wine warms and aromas are lost from outsized cups.
