Get paid to eat

ANDREW J. LINN

...consumed from Monday to Wednesday in pubs, restaurants, cafes, hotels, etc. The maximum is ten pounds per person, wine and alcoholic drinks not subsidised. IVA has been cut from 20% to 5% on hospitality and tourism, which is a measure Spain should copy. ... the menu, and in restaurants in many Eastern European countries two meals are offered for the price of one. But surely isn't the one catch-all trick to offer wine at half price across the board? The wine industry is suffering badly and needs to

What's on a label?

ANDREW J. LINN

The media love it when they can break news about any sort of fraud, whether in the world of art, finance, or simply wine. The untiring interest may be due to the fact that there are often well-known personalities involved, and wine is, anyway, sort ... of sexy. The major scandals to date have invariably been based on the counterfeiting of the world's greatest vintages, like dressing up an inferior wine to appear like one of the world's greatest. Rudy Kurniwan is serving a 10-year jail sentence in ... the US for doing just that, caught out when he counterfeited magnums of a famous Burgundy for a year when no magnums were used. So why should anyone bother to make a cheap wine look like an older wine from one of the lowest value regions of Spain?

New drinking patterns

ANDREW J. LINN

Wine sales are down worldwide. Not necessarily because the usual band of wine lovers has suddenly reduced its personal consumption (some chance - probably the reverse) but a huge proportion of the wine that gets sold is traditionally consumed in the ... currently closed bars and restaurants. The phrases 'I never drink alone' or 'I don't drink at home' resonate throughout even the keenest aficionado's prating. The OIV (International Organisation for Wine), organisers of, among other events, the Bacchus ... Awards, indicates that world consumption of wine has fallen drastically owing to Covid-19. It is estimated that winemakers will see their income cut in half. While previously such dire and calamitous situations have usually been followed by a brisk

Prohibition, will they never learn?

ANDREW J. LINN

...and the declared aims were never achieved. Alcohol consumption did not decrease and anti-government feeling swelled. South Africa has just adopted this misguided policy and consequently its wine industry is on the verge of collapse. Inexplicably, ... not only are national wine sales banned, but also exports, leaving producers with bursting warehouses and no income. Why did one of the world's foremost wine-producing countries suddenly put a stop to any class of commercial activity involving wine

Orange wine

ANDREW J. LINN

The name Orange Wine is misleading. While there does actually exist a type of wine in Huelva Province that is officially known as 'vino de naranja', this is only because the recently pressed white grapes are allowed to cuddle up to some orange peel ... for as long as it takes to adopt the desired amber tone and smoothish taste. Otherwise vino de naranja, orange wine, never sees an orange or indeed any other fruit that is not a grape. WINE OF THE WEEK Les Crestes Wines from the Priorato region ... of the Pyrenees have a reputation for being high in alcohol and expensive. This young wine of the year is neither, at 14.5% alcohol and around 17€. Mainly Garnacha grape, and aged for eight months in oak, it has a delightfully concentrated taste.

Wine for ransom

ANDREW J. LINN

...and barrels to release 40,000 hectolitres of wine. Result: two million euros' worth of losses. WINE OF THE WEEK La Fuente de Nekeas It is not very obvious how they have done it, but this small family bodega, Nekeas, has succeeded in getting its ... attacked, among them La Cadena Ser, KPMG and Accenture. As in nearly all such cases the victims do not publicise the attacks, following the instructions of the hackers, but it is an open secret that at least one of the country's biggest wine producers also

Wine waiters in waiting

ANDREW J. LINN

We are witnessing a sommelier boom. They used to be known as wine waiters, but the profession has blossomed into a full-blown status thing, and never have there been more sommeliers working in restaurants, nor such a demand for their services. ... WINE OF THE WEEK Viña Vilano Black 2017 An award-winning wine, this Ribera del Duero red is made with 100 per cent tempranillo grapes and matured for eight months in oak and three in a bottle. An El Corte Inglés exclusive at nine euros with the ... prospects are virtually nil within the restaurant. The only route to betterment is moving to another position elsewhere. And how long do they want to stay in the job? A retired wine waiter (not referred to as a sommelier back then) from one of Marbella's

It's in the can

ANDREW J. LINN

Life as we have always known it is changing drastically. No business or trade has been unaffected by the Covid-19 crisis, and sectors of commerce of whatever category have to adapt. But every cloud has its silver lining, and one part of the wine ... business is experiencing a bonanza: wine in cans. In every country, from the USA and Canada, to Sweden and traditionalist France, there has been a significant increase in this form of packaging. The advantages of wine in cans are, like those of ... bag-in-box wine, so obvious as to be incontrovertible. Price, convenience (ring-pull opener), quality and portability - fits into any pocket. Bulk storage and handling is easy and breakages zero. Recyclable and egalitarian, cans give little opportunity for

It's an ill wind...

ANDREW J. LINN

Although the effects on individual wine drinkers are likely to be negligible - unless they get infected - the potential consequences for the trade of the coronavirus are serious. If people stop travelling, the wine they would drink on cruise ships ... and in hotels and restaurants, will not be consumed. International wine shows like ProWien in Germany, Vinitaly, the Grands Jours de Bourgogne and Taste Washington have been cancelled. The world’s biggest wine market, China, is a shadow of its ... it’s an ill wind that blows nobody any good. Online food and wine suppliers are having a field day throughout Europe, and delivery services like Uber Eats, Deliveroo, MacDelivery, etc, cannot believe their good luck. Most expect to make more

Wine landmarks

ANDREW J. LINN

Ask any wine lover about the most important events in the history of wine, and it is surprising how the same subjects crop up frequently. On a scale of 1 to 10, and starting with the invention of glass bottles and cork stoppers, this must make ... 10/10. WINE OF THE WEEK Artuke Pies Negros 2016 This wine is quite a find (although El Corte Inglés stocks it) and will not be on most wine buffs' radar. A Rioja made by a small family bodega using Tempranillo and Garnacha, with a higher than usual ... alcohol content of 14º. The grapes are hand-picked and pressed manually (by foot, or should that be by feet?). Aged for at least 12 months in oak. Around 10 euros. The traditional ageing of wine in oak casks?
