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.

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.

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.

It's in the can

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.

Wine waiters in waiting

Corked or just bad
