Harvest Pronostic & Building Team 2014 #Beaujolais #Fleurie

The sun is usually a good sign in vineyards, helping grapes to grow healthy and tasty. In terms of ennemies of the vine, we usually talk about hail but in reality, sunshine can be a real harm.

Serving Tip : salt+ice+water to make your wine colder, faster!

Unless you have a special machine to low down the temperature of the wine in a minute, you’ll have to stick to the freezer or to ice cubes. Coming from far and impatient to celebrate the evening, you can’t make your friends wait longer.  It’s the same...
