Heavy wine

A. J. LINN

In the festive season wine consumption increases, not meaning that we regular drinkers consume more (ahem!), rather that people who would normally pass on it enjoy a glass or three. We do not realise how lucky we are. Wine has been produced for the ... last 6,000 years, but it is only in 3% of that entire period that we have been able to drink it as a refined pleasure. For the previous 97% of those six millennia, wine was drunk not for pleasure, but because water was polluted. Wine, and beer in some ... countries, was the only liquid refreshment, sweet wine being the preferred tipple as it kept longer. Quantities of Bavarian steinwein still exist from 1540, the driest year on record when the Rhine ran dry, and wine was used for building due to lack of water.

AGUSTÍN PELÁEZ

...attraction. One of the winery's most sought after products was its sacramental wine. José was a Roman Catholic until his death. However, in 1939 he was tried and sentenced to seven years in prison for belonging to an illegal association, the Malaga Masons,” ... his grandson. When excommunicated, José Garijo, who until then was the largest provider of sacramental wine in the province, reached an agreement in 1947 with his friends Carlos Javier and Juan Krauel. “They both helped him to continue selling the ... wine to the church. Bodegas Antigua Casa de Guardia continued to make the sacramental wine, but Krauel was the one who delivered it from his cellar. The churches and parishes were both aware of this but they knew that my grandfather was a good person,”

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

A whiter shade of wine

ANDREW J. LINN

...nomenclature could no longer be used to describe winegrowing areas. WINE OF THE WEEK Martín Códax Albariño This bodega (founded in 1986) is the region's largest co-operative, and it keeps tabs on its members around the year. There is a wide range of ... soft-shelled crab to razor fish and always shipped from Galicia - not for the faint-hearted either financially or gastronomically. A little-known fact about these Albariños is that they do not have to be drunk young. Indeed a 4 or 5 year old wine is often more

Adios to another wine dynasty

ANDREW J. LINN

WINE OF THE WEEK Blanc Pescador A real favourite of the value-for-money brigade, this Catalan white wine is known as vino de aguja, literally 'needle wine' in reference to its slightly-sparkling nature. Made first in the 1960s, it is an unerring ... he deal, there were Chinese waiting in the wings. Not a happy ending, but one that is becoming frequent in the wine business.

Olympic wine games

A. J. LINN

...cricket are proposed for Tokyo 2020, and, bizarre as it may seem, so is chess, trampoline, hula-hoop, pogo stick and pole dancing. The conclusion is that almost anything goes, so why not wine tasting? Last month's international competition organised by ... that countries that produced wine tended to do far worse than those that did not. 'It is as if they never taste wine from other countries....' was the sledgehammer comment, referring predictably to the French, although a little unfair on Spain which had ... won first place in 2015. Here anyway, there must be more than sufficient justification for adding wine tasting to the long list of Olympic events.

The wine biz

A. J. LINN

Successfully exporting wine, however good and value-for-money, depends on many factors, above all the destination country. Speaking as someone who had the exclusive distribution in the UK of Spanish brands like Barbadillo, José de Soto, López ... like Amazon and investors like Warren Buffet cannot break down the barriers.

The idea is ... standard Amazon: customers order their wine online and the orders are fulfilled by the producer direct. The problem is that in a country where each state sets its own tax levels, it is illegal to buy alcohol across state lines. This law results in retailers

Mountain wine

A. J. LINN

...mention of Mountain Wine. Unfortunately he didn’t think much of it but didn’t like Spain anyway. Nevertheless his book is worth a read, and any student of 18th century English travellers in Spain, such as George Borrow and Richard Ford, will find the ... unimaginative Wiltshire clergyman’s writings an interesting match. Around the same period the famous French traveller, Teofilo Gautier, hated Malaga’s gazpacho (’only fit for dogs’) but enjoyed the local white wine.Townsend found himself in a province that was ... hugely productive. Back then it was Spain’s second-largest wine region, and the product, known as Mountain, was very popular in England and North America.

An Andalusian retreat to wellness
