Part of this new #InVinoFab podcast, will dig into a particular issue related to the topic of women, education, or wine. This new series will engage and introduce you to new voices of women in education; however, these shorter episodes will introduce you to wine concepts. This is a sort of a “wine bible study” to help us learn more about the world of vino. We hope these shorter podcast episodes will introduce us (and you!) to random tips, interesting facts, and perhaps little known facts about wine. Here’s the book that got us interested in learning more about the wine we sip.
- Have you brought a bottle of wine to your favorite restaurant? You just might be able to bring a lovely bottle of wine to dine with the option of paying a corkage fee - learn more at Corkage Fees for Dummies: http://www.foodandwine.com/articles/corkage-for-dummies
- Take a look at the points on the wine. You can find some affordable wine for around 90 points that will offer you some delicious options at an affordable price. A pragmatic approach to using the wine ratings: http://winefolly.com/tutorial/wine-ratings-explained/
- Why do restaurants mark up the cost of a bottle of wine? Why is it more expensive for me to purchase my favorite bottle of wine
- How should wine be stored while you are waiting to drink it? Also, how do I store an opened bottle of wine that is not finished in one sitting?
- Why are wine bottles shaped a certain way for different wine varietals?
- Why do sommeliers encourage you to swirl the wine?
- What type of memories are brought up with different types of wine?
- If you make your own wine, how did you get started? How did you learn about the home craft of wine-making? How did you craft your own label for your wine?
- What kind of wine and what label would we consider for our own home vintages? [Challenge to Patrice & Laura]
