THE WINES

Red Wine, White Wine, Rosé, Sparkling Wine & Dessert Wine

Each wine has its own delicious qualities! Red wine is made by fermenting the juice of grape skins, specifically dark-skinned grapes. Basically we are drinking grape juice, excellent! Rather than using dark-skinned grapes white wine is made with light-skinned grapes. White and red wines are still wines, without any bubbles.

As rosé is the middle wine child it isn’t surprising that they use dark grapes, taking the peels out before they stain the wine too red. Rosé can also be made by mixing red and white wine together. Fancy playing around yourself testing out different wine and cocktail recipes. Visit our wine blog’s for fun recipe’s and ideas surrounding wine.

Sparkling wine is actually made into a still wine first. After this the winemaker starts the second fermentation by adding yeasts and sugar to the base wine. These yeasts convert the added sugars into alcohol and carbon dioxide bubbles, creating a delicious bubbly wine. The longer and slower the second step the more complex and expensive the wine will be. Bottles of sparkling wine are often gifted to wine lovers for special occasions due to their pretty bottle and who could resist that celebratory pop of the bottle!

Champagne

It’s famous for a reason! Champagne’s a French sparkling wine and can only be called this when it comes from the Champagne wine region in France. Producing this bubbly favorite has strict rules. Learn more about this delicious bottle of bubbles in Coolenator’s Champagne Blog!

Do you have a sweet wine lover in your life? Chances are they would love a dessert wine as a gift. Sometimes also known as pudding wines. These wines are typically served with, you guessed it, dessert dishes. These wines usually have a higher alcohol percentage and are sweet with a pronounced flavor. A golden tip is that the wine should be sweeter than the food it is served with.

 Which wine to choose?

Choosing a wine lover gift can be very personal. You want to show that you have put thought and effort into it and not just grabbed it on the way there from a supermarket. Especially if the person you’re buying it for is a real wine connoisseur.

Go mid range to high end

If you don’t know much about wines the first tip would be to not to go for the cheapest option. Choose a wine that is mid-range to high end. That’s not to say you can’t get a cheaper wine that tastes nice, but if you haven’t tasted it yourself it’s safer to go a bit more upmarket.

Consider the season

For summer a crispy Pinot Grigio will be a definite hit. During colder seasons a heavier bodied red wine would be a much appreciated gift. These are all suggestions of course. Many wine drinkers prefer their favorites all year round no matter the season.

If you’re not sure which wine to pick and you want to give something that is going to last after the inside of the bottle is gone. Add an accessories to go with that bottle of crispy Pinot Gris. What could  be better than a wine gift that gives limitless amounts of cooling to enjoy endless cold bottles.

THE COLD WINE TREND (and why we love it!)

When we think of white, rose and sparkling wine it’s a given that these are better drunk cold. Drinking Red wine cold has been the hot topic the past years and is becoming increasingly more popular. Saying that not all red wines are chill worthy. Choose lighter-bodied lively wines with higher acidity and no oak, varietals like Pinot Noir and Gamay are great chilled.

Putting ice cubes in your wine seems like the easiest way to quickly cool down your wine. Although this seems like a good solution, what you are left with is watery, diluted wine that just ends up tasting like water. The inventor of Coolenator knew this issue all too well. This is where it all began, coming up with new ways to keep drinks colder for longer without losing any quality.
