Wine Culture on Snooth

Rate this store:

  • In many ways Greece is the ancient epicenter to modern society. Governmental structures, intellectual gatherings, food and wine celebrations, all stem from Greece. As much a part of historic Greek culture as gods and goddesses is Greek wine. Dating back to approximately the third century BC, evidence suggests wine was an integral part of Greek s... Read More

    From the article The Real Scoop on Greek Wines

  • Going off on a bit of a tangent, here's a library I've visited and like (hey, I like 'home' libraries and wood interiors, what the heck). It's in a very well known winery with quite a history itself, and has a lot of books covering the even longer history of grapes and wine and their culture and cultivation/vinification.Any guesses as to where i...

  • To make clearer the Scythians' location and outlying proximity to the often-overpoweringly-'superior' Greek culture to the west, here's a map from the article:Most historians have focused on how Greek influence determined the shape of cultures (including wine) to the west, from the Etruscans and Romans on throughout the lands abutting the Medite...

    Forum post in the topic Greek Winemaking

  • Here's an interesting article on how the ancient Greeks influenced the Scythians, one of those dreaded 'horse-people' hordes who entered European consciousness from the steppes abutting onto the Black Sea area, to take up wine drinking. Guess just fermented mare's (or yak or goat or sheep) milk was no longer enough after contact with civilizatio... Read More

    Forum post in the topic Greek Winemaking

  • Or in this case, ancient Greek wine. Interesting to consider the origins of the wine culture we currently enjoy. Not that it's exactly a straight line from back then to our here and now, but theirs are some of the earliest recountings available to us of winemaking and enjoyment.Was re-reading Hesiod's 'Works and Days' and found myself paying gre...

    Forum post in the topic Greek Winemaking

  • This past spring I took my very first wine trip to Germany. Before I took off, I did a bit of homework: There are thirteen regions (Anbaugebiete) for quality wine production in Germany: Ahr, Baden, Franconia, Hessische Bergstrasse, Mittelrhein, Mosel, Nahe, Palatinate, Rheingau, Rheinhessen, Saale-Unstrut, Saxony, and Württemberg. Most of these ... Read More

    From the article The Many Sides of German Wine

  • Good suggestion, Stephen. Those are two good names to start with, but there are ... their stuff, and the past wine culture of the UK. Johnson is still active to a certain degree, though Broadbent is pretty much retired to my knowledge. Other names from the next generation that might be worth accessing would be Stephen Spurrier and Clive Coates ... Read More

    Forum post in the topic Historical Wine Question

  • Hello,I am a writer working on a historical piece, and wondered if anyone had any ideas about what fine wines and champagnes Londoners would have been drinking in the late 1930s. Surprisingly hard to find!Thanks,Alan Read More

    Forum post in the topic Historical Wine Question

  • Somehow looks like a combo between Southern Rhone and Bordeaux and Northern ... recent California del Norte wine culture heritage and throw in some Zin as well. One wonders why they avoided Spanish (other than the garnacha), too, or is that still a colonial thing?  ;-)Keep the Baja bottles coming, Mark, they're always entertaining. How bad was... Read More

    Forum post in the topic And now for something...

  • As I found when I conducted the searches I posted about at top, you need to refine your criteria down to specific communities to get the best results. And they do make it clear that they're starting from the LA area.I personally think that if the functionality can be steadily improved it could be a useful site and web/mobile app. Of course it al...
