The Wine Atelier Podcast #4: Red Wine 101
November 29, 2017 / Stephanie Miskew / 0 Comments
In the second episode of The Wine Atelier 101 Series, we’ll talk about Red Wine. And I think French writer and poet Henri Murger really captured people’s great passion for red wines when he said, “The first duty of wine is to be red. Don’t talk to me of your white wines!”
In today’s episode, I’ll be going over the process of making red wine, potential health benefits, terms associated with red wines, and many other must-know details so you can dazzle everyone with your red wine knowledge and gain vinous street cred among your wine-loving friends! I’m also answering a question from a red wine-living listener regarding those dreaded red wine headaches – BIG hint: they’re NOT from the sulfites!
