This February, love will be in the air on the 14th, but we'll be feeling the good vibes long past Valentine's Day. On the 18th, look forward to Drink Wine Day for an authentic Indian dining experience that will make you fall in love with Tandoor Chef all over again. Pucker up!
Here are three reasons you may not be enjoying your wine the way you should be. Take a trip with us to make this Drink Wine Day the best yet!
You think red wine tastes too dry.
If you're a white wine drinker, don't give up on red wine too easily! There are a few options you might want to consider pairing with your dinner tonight. High tannin content is often what makes a red wine come across as too dry for the white wine drinker, so give a dry Rosé, or something softer like Pinot Noir, Grenache, Barbera, or Gamay a taste!
You think wine is simply red or white.
You may know the basic differences between a red and a white, but it’s also important to learn about all of the types of wine and their different varietals. Don’t be afraid to explore everything from Chardonnay to Viognier and Cabernet Sauvignon to Zinfandel!
You think wine has one note.
While all wine is stored at the same temperature, reds and whites should be enjoyed at different temperatures. Oftentimes, white wine is served at too cold a temperature, causing it to be flavorless, and red wine is served at too warm a temperature, causing it to taste alcoholic. A good rule of thumb is to note that white wines should be chilled before drinking and red wines should be have time to rise in temperature before serving!
