Wonderful Wine Words

So you have a new wine cabinet or custom wine cellar in Toronto, and you need to brush up on your wine words? The lingo associated with wine is as distinctive as the beverage itself. As a wine lover, you don’t want to be perceived 

Wine, Technology, and Harvest Challenges

Wine, Technology, and Harvest Challenges

Several different wine bottles with different labels.

Ten developments expected to guide the future of fine wine were recently outlined in an August 2017 article. The information is derived from topics discussed at a Fine Minds 4 Fine Wines conference in France that took place in June. Technology in Wine Stores and Disruptive Technologies were included in the conversation.

Technology for the Wine Industry

There are numerous groups that get together for the purpose of ensuring a future for the wine industry. Keeping up with modern technology is important. For instance, customer movement can be tracked with beacons, providing helpful information to be used for marketing purposes.

Blockchain technology is digital and operates like a distributed ledger that keeps a continuous, constant list of records. Transactions are validated and added to a chain. The chain of transactions is stored on multiple servers, creating a record that is permanent and irrevocable. Blockchain is expected to be a world-changing technology.

Using 3D printing to customize customer packaging is also considered an advanced approach to providing service in the wine industry.

Current Challenges

It’s important to strategize and plan for the future of the wine industry, especially considering that some wine regions in the U.S. are struggling. A recent problem appears to be that the legalization of marijuana in California, Oregon, and Washington, creates labor shortages for vintners in those states.

In July, during off-the-record discussions with a reporter, concerns were expressed that no one will be available to pick grapes once the harvests are ready. The majority of the help needed for harvest time comes from part-time workers who work during the season for hourly wages. Vintners are concerned that even if they raise the amount of wages paid for harvesting grapes, not enough laborers will be available.

Wine Will Never Go Out of Style

Although the industry faces struggles and should keep up with modern technology, winemaking isn’t going anywhere. Upcoming generations just need to be introduced to the joys of wine. In addition, professionals in the industry should remain diligent to ensure that winemakers are keeping up with modern technology. Whether or not there will truly be a dilemma at harvest time remains to be seen, though there is evidence that a labor shortage could hurt the U.S. industry. Whatever happens, one thing is for sure: wine will always be in season

3 Reasons Wine is Like Your Best Friend

3 Reasons Wine is Like Your Best Friend

They now provide wine cooling systems that bring out the best in wine. You can get durable wine cooling units from CellarCOOL, Koolspace, Wine Guardian, WhisperKool, Breezaire, Cellar Pro, and Wine Guardian.

Why Wine is Like your Best Friend

Anyone who has ever had a best friend knows there’s nothing else quite like having a buddy who is always there for you, through thick and thin. It’s not difficult to recognize that the very best qualities in good friends also happen to correlate with the great things we love about wine. True wine connoisseurs may focus on terroir and tasting notes, but even they recognize that wine has even deeper qualities that can add to your quality of life.

  • Best friends always have a listening ear when you really need one. If you’re ever left alone with your wine and other friends aren’t available, the wine does a nice job of allowing you to open up and share what’s on your mind. You can freely express all of your feelings and experience no judgement whatsoever.
  • Wine is like a comforting potion that can lift your spirits every time. No one can deny that a best friend is nothing if not a source of comfort when comfort is needed most.
  • You can be more confident when you’re with your best friends, since a bond of two or more can’t easily be broken. Wine alone can be all you need for a boost of confidence. In fact, you could potentially become a bit overly confident and start dancing on tables, to demonstrate your skillful moves, for example. So be sure to watch the intake level. All that should be needed for wine to be your best friend is a glass or two, at most, per day.
