5 Reasons to Love Wine
If you are looking for reasons to love wine then you already, secretly like it however as a Wine lover myself, let me build a foundation of why drinking Wine is the best choice of all the drinks.
Of course, no offence to any other drinks but we are celebrating the existence of Wine and how much we are thankful for it.
There isn’t any special season to open cabinets and fill our glasses with wine while we sit peacefully because the Wine season is evergreen. Whether it’s crisp winters or humid summer, Wine lives in all seasons with a diverse taste that comes in different colours -red wine, white wine, Rose Wine or, Vintage/non-vintage, whatever suits your mood at the moment.
If any of you question the difference between Red wine and White wine, I hope this clarification will help:
RED WINE – During the production of red wine, the skin of grapes remain intact for the process of fermentation which gives the wine a more dark colour and a little different flavour than White wine.
WHITE WINE– White wine, on the other hand, the skin of grapes get removed before fermentation, giving us more clear juice and a little sweet taste since the skin of grapes contains sourness.
ROSE WINE– it’s produced similarly to other red wines, the time it ferments with grape skins is cut shorter. This reduced skin contact is what gives rosé its signature pink colour.
Since that’s cleared up let’s dive into the 5 Beautiful reasons to Love wine in all seasons and times:
It’s EFFORTLESS. What all accompanists do you need to enjoy Wine? Nothing because the wine itself is enough. If we compare it with other alcoholic drinks, for instance, Whiskey, Vodka or Gin, they all require different mixtures, some ice and definitely a glass.
With Wine? Just pick the bottle and start drinking. You don’t need any ice and you sure don’t need any mixtures. If you are thinking “I would never drink wine straight from the bottle“. You aren’t a hardcore Wine lover. When your heart is broken or your mind is stressed, Wine in a bottle is fine by me.
Our Own Special Sauce.
What else can you do with Wine? Can you add it to your food? Hell Yeahhh!!!
Red or white, both are amazing options to cook soup, stew, any sauce or braise. Wine gives your food great texture and a bittersweet flavour. It intensifies your dish and also enhances the aroma of food. However, Be careful when it comes to choosing a Wine to use in food preparation. Only pick wines that you already love and are comfortable with their taste.
Your Heart Loves it.
For Red Wine lovers- Because of the fermentation process, a normal glass of red wine contains 10 times more polyphenols than a glass of white wine. Polyphenols have many potential health benefits and antioxidants. It not only helps to reduce the bad cholesterol but it also increases the level of ‘good cholesterol which tend to lower the risk of heart disease.
Additionally, It’s very important not to drink too much because excessive of everything is harmful. 1-2 glasses in a day are okay frequently, more than that can risk your heart health.
Wine takes time to acquire the taste. It’s not about gulping your drink down to get drunk ( You have other drinks for that).
If you go to Wine taster, you would see varieties of Wine that all taste very different. Some will be sweeter than others or, tangier than others. It’s the experience to find Wine made for you. Pour it into a glass, swirl it around and take a good sniff out of your wine. Tell me if it doesn’t scream Classy to you.
Fun Fact: The percentage of oxygen present in your glass affects the taste of Wine. Next time whenever you drink Wine, sip it and swirl it around.
Basically A Fruit.
Is wine a fruit? yes, it is. It’s produced with grapes and with lots of love. Since the grapes are key ingredients, it tastes good and fruity as compared with other drinks such as vodka, tequila or anything. Also, When you drink wine, it doesn’t get you sloshed. Instead, it gets you tipsy, slowly and gently. It doesn’t give you a headache as the other drinks do.
You remember the time when you trusted Vodka once, and the next thing you know, you are puking your guts everywhere and woke up with the worst hangover. No? It’s only me?
Wine is better, tastier and evergreen drink and I am thankful for its existence.
