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

Champagne has its moments

ANDREW J. LINN

The figures published for wine consumption during lockdown cannot all be correct. Many of them contradict each other, although there are some reliable facts that can be correlated and double-checked. The drinks industry as a whole always accepts ... the Nielsen data: UK champagne sales had fallen 41 per cent by the third week of lockdown while beer sales jumped 70 per cent. Wine sales across the board are of course down all over Europe, as restaurants were closed and home consumption could not ... fill the gap. Distilled drink sales exploded, probably because it is more convenient to buy and store a few bottles of vodka than the equivalent amount of alcohol in wine, not to mention other effects. So what about champagne? To the chagrin of the

Intruders

ANDREW J. LINN

A well-known Spanish wine critic recently explained that anyone without technical qualifications involved in the wine trade is an 'intruder' (in Spanish 'intruso'). The English word does not exist in the context he uses. Nevertheless, he alleges ... plant the grapes they choose to make their wine?" In the majority of countries there are no such controls on winemakers. So why are the Spanish - and French and Germans - so enthusiastic about maintaining endless rules and regulations? It can only be ... favourite self-taught sommelier who has been 40 years at his job, or the winemaker who grows vines on a corner of his farm and makes delicious wine. If the rule-makers have their way, these artisans will disappear as a consequence of the controls that

Hidden Andalucía, the insider guide

Andrew Forbes

...favoured by wine-makers since Roman times and is now the epicentre for Pedro Ximénez vines. Yet there is more to discover than just the local Montilla-Moriles tipples. Deep beneath the village cemetery of Monturque is a vast Roman cistern. Unearthed by ... consider heading out into the magnificent surrounding countryside, and to the ancient city of Acinipo. This is where Ronda was first settled, and for a century or two it was a wealthy nexus for this Roman wine-growing region (they even minted their own ... money, carrying the icon of a bunch of grapes!). The Roman amphitheatre remains and provides an impressive viewpoint from which to enjoy a panorama of the unspoilt landscape. Modern day oenologists have restored Ronda’s profile as a wine-growing region,

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.

It's in the can

ANDREW J. LINN

But every cloud has its silver lining, and one part of the wine ... business is experiencing a bonanza: wine in cans.
