Wine 101: Requests

Posted by Charles Emilio, Nov 13, 2009.

Does anyone have anything of interest that they would like to know more about?

I know a lot of people really enjoyed the Oak articles.

Perhaps we can make a list for Greg.

List your topics:

I would love to learn more about Spanish wines in general...but I am not sure the kind of fan base that shares.

More like wine 201 or even 301 (but still undergrad)--it'd be enlightening to see a piece on importing wine from overseas, and how to deal with various hurdles doing so. Now I'll really be impressed if an article of that sort makes its appearance. ;-)

And Kyle, sure threre's a fan base for Spanish wines. GregT would be the logical resident expert....

It would be interesting to have some "Food for Wine" section rather than the other way around,

I'd love to see a compare and contrast type series on aging in oak v stainless steel or stainless w/ oak chips. Also a compare and contrast of small winery v big winery techniques.

Great thread idea by the way - I've stickied it so it sits near the top.

And I'm paying attention.

I've got my plate full for a few months but I will work your ideas into the schedule.

Thanks for the input.

I'd like to learn more about fermentation and the difference in wine when fermented in oak, concrete and stainless steel

The "in's and out's" of home wine brewing (kits and rigs).

I would also throw whole berry fermentation vs crushed and natural yeast vs introduced yeast into the fermentation discussion.

How about a wine introductory road map. I've been getting more and more into wine lately and discovered snooth a short wile ago. I thought there were a lot of wines in my local wine store, I now realize that what I see there is just a fraction of the wine that is out there. I am completely overwhelmed by the sheer number of wines available, different varietals, regions, white, rose , red, dry, semi-sweet, sweet, sparkling, fortified..... How does one navigate through all this?!?

Kyle - Spanish wines eh? I'm far from any kind of expert but we'll see what we can do. In any event, there is already a bit of info right here on Snooth and some pretty good general info at Wines of Spain. Had dinner last night w the winemaker for one of the great old bodegas and if you want an expert, that's definitely HIM, but at some point we can do something.

As far as importing, that's a whole nother problem! One of the things we were talking about was exactly that as a matter of fact, including some ideas for creating a new model. I might be able to do an article about the steps for importing, but that's down the road a piece.
