Wine Facts

January 8th, 2012 by Pamela Murski

Tips and facts from Windy Winery, one of the wonderful Texas wineries on the Bluebonnet Wine Trail located just minutes from the ranch,  romance packages and  fun cooking classes:

  • Red wine, typically more than white wine, has antioxidant properties and contains resveratrol, which seems to be important in the cardio-protective effects of wine.
  • California, New York, and Florida lead the United States in wine consumption.
  • California is the fourth-largest wine producer in the world, after France, Italy, and Spain.
  • Wine testers swirl their glass to encourage the wine to release all of its powerful aromas. Most don’t fill the glass more than a third full in order to allow aromas to collect and to not spill it during a swirl.
  • Most wine is served in a glass that has a gently curved rim at the top to help contain the aromas in the glass. The thinner the glass and the finer the rim, the better. A flaring, trumpet-shaped class dissipates the aromas.
