Does wine really taste better with age?

Some wines do, but most wines don’t. More than 90 percent of all wine worldwide is meant to be consumed within one year, and less than 1 percent of the world's wine is meant to be aged for more than five years.

Only some select wines are designed to age for extended periods so that their bold tannins (natural preservatives found in grape skins) have time to mellow.

How many glasses of wine in every bottle of wine?

There are 25.4 ounces to a bottle if you pour a 5 ounce glass the is 5. Pour a 6 ounce glass the is 4 with a little left over for the host.

6 It would be just over 6 servings if you poured a suggested 4 oz serving, but that is pretty small. A standard pour at a bar or restaurant is about 6 oz, so figure about 4 -5 glasses. 750ml (regular size) bottle=25.4 oz

A standard drink is:

  • A 12-ounce bottle or can of regular beer
  • A 5-ounce glass of dinner wine
  • A one and 1/2 ounce of 80 proof distilled spirits (either straight or in a mixed drink)

Standard drinks contain 0.6 ounce of absolute alcohol and to a breathalyzer they're all the same. Thus, standard drinks exhibit alcohol equivalence.

Color Blindness
Winemaking

Does the color of a wine bottle have an effect on the wine itself?

Yes, light can alter the chemical content of the wine and alter its flavour and colour. If you leave your clothes out in the sun they will fade, a similar process is involved here.

However light coloured bottles which let more light through will not be a problem if you intend to drink the wine soon. If you are planning to cellar wine for a long time you will need a dark coloured bottle, or a dark cellar.

How do you become a cult wine?

Cult wineries are made more through the winemaker than the wine.

One of the most famous cult wines is Hundred Acre.

Jason Woodbridge is the winemaker and owner of the Hundred Acre portfolio.

Jason's personality is considered "rogue and unyielding". This is an unusual trait in winemaking. Jason is also a natural in marketing, and with this refreshing mix of disciplines he was able to successfully attract the interest of Robert Parker and Wine Advocate.

On top of that, his winemaking ability is remarkable. The latest 2008 vintage of Ark Cabernet Sauvignon received 99 points from Robert Parker. The same Ark in 2007 got a perfect score. Right now all Hundred Acre labels are sold out on retail.

The wine may have made Hundred Acre a winner, but Jason Woodbridge made Hundred Acre a cult.
