And because the growing land is so rugged, the grapes are almost always harvested entirely by hand. That’s all to say: Expect some funky, fascinating bottles of wine.

THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN CAMPARI AND APEROL, EXPLAINED

Traditionally consumed to stimulate the palate before eating, apéritifs — or aperitivos in local parlance — such as Aperol and Campari have been popular in their native Italy for well over a century.

If you try to hold your wine to a similar standard of transparency, however, you’ll end up frustrated. There’s no requirement for winemakers to list their ingredients. Anywhere.

Have the Italian Wine Regulations Become a Sham?

Wines made for restaurants solve dilemma

On a fictitious wine list from a nonexistent restaurant you find 2014 Chateau Niedspondiavanci Chardonnay for $45.

You, a savvy, mobile phone-equipped diner, do an Internet search to find out about it: is it worth $45? Where is it from? But the only search-engine results for the brand has nothing about wine, only a reference to a terrible 1942 joke.

This tale illustrates one of the restaurant industry’s most difficult-to-solve problems: how to offer diners wines that don’t compete directly with discount wine shops, a list that could look (and may be) overpriced.

HOW TO PAIR FOOD WITH PROSECCO

If you’re ever unsure what wine to pair with food, pull out the Prosecco. These high-acid wines containing just a touch of residual sugar are extremely versatile and go well with almost anything, but are especially great with every Asian dish in the book.

How to Pair Wine With Any Type of Ramen

All ramen is dominated by rich, savory flavors. With this kind of unbridled umami, you want a wine with both residual sweetness and a truckload of acidity to balance everything out.

US consumers are drinking less

Wine sales volumes in the USA rose 1% in 2017 on the previous year. The bump is being attributed to the success of sparkling and canned products, and it defies a broader decline in total alcohol consumption of 0.7%, and shrinking consumer numbers, with only 62% of adults saying they drank alcohol in 2017, compared to 65% in 2016.
