Audelssa Winery (Sonoma, Ca) Tasting Experience

Wine for commercial use can be packaged in various size containers; bag in a box, tetra packs and recently there have been discussions for plastics bottles (ouch). The most traditional way to package wine is in glass bottles, from clear to assorted shades of green, yellow and brown glass. Sizes range from 250ml to 6000ml, with all other sizes in between. Glass bottles allow wines to be properly stored and aged. When you buy quality wines you should always buy glass bottles, preferably with a natural cork.

Jeroboam: Refers to a 4500ml (4.5 litres, 152.2 fl oz) or a 5000ml (5 litres, 169 fl oz) bottle. These sizes are not always available and are also very popular with wine collectors as it allows wines to age for longer, offering the opportunity to discover some older and special vintages. This size is used to age wines up to 30 years and more.

First you have to know something about wines before you go shopping for it. Important information that you could use, like their ingredients, which wine has the best quality etc.

The Santa Carolina Chilean winery was established with the help of French wine professionals in the Central Valley using Grossiste en vin fran├žais grapes. The winery has vineyards in several different valleys. Today’s wine comes from the Rapel Valley that stretches from the Pacific Ocean to the Andes mountains a distance of about 60 miles (100 kilometers), an area with low rainfall near the Rapel River that brings mineral rich melt water from the upper Andes. You might want to look for wines coming from the Colchagua Valley north of the river or the Cachapoal Valley south of the river. As often, the smaller the region the better the wine potential.

1) How much of that particular type of wine was made? Did they make 10,000 cases in this lot or did they make 100 cases? Normally you will pay more for the 100 case lot wine.

Sparkling Wine ~ A fantastic host or hostess gift and versatile wine for cocktail and dessert parties because it pairs with just about anything and is an affordable yet impressive bottle of bubbly.

Final verdict. The Hebrew expression Kacha-Kacha can be translated as So-So. I did a quick search and the only other locally-available Petite Syrah in our price range comes from Mexico. I may put it on my list, but honestly, it won’t be a priority.
