Along the east of Lake Garda, the province of Veneto, in north-eastern Italy, lies around the picturesque town of Bardolino. The wine region takes its name from this town, but it also encompasses a broader area. Wines labelled as Bardolino Classico are those made specifically near the town of Bardolino, itself, from original vineyards.
Rosé is a style of wine that is made when juice from red grapes is left in contact with the skins for only a short period of time. The resulting wine has more characteristics of the grapes themselves, and not usually any tannins or other flavors from the skins. This skin contact gives the wine shades of delicate pinks or oranges, up to bright and vivid salmons or deep pinks, depending on the amount of contact and possibly the winemaking techniques used.
Kosher wines are regular wines, produced in observance of, and in compliance with, Jewish religious dietary laws (Kashrut). The religious laws outline a standard for food preparation as well as winemaking.
Red wine isn’t supposed to be cold, right? Wrong… sometimes. The wine world is warming up (ha!) to the idea of chilling certain red wines for summer drinking.
