A Glass of Red Wine, Please!

30.8.2021.

Besides enjoying our every next sip, we also drink red wine for our health! Every palate, even the most demanding, will find pleasure on our rich wine list. 

From elegant and fruity to intense and full of flavor, red wine offers an endless expansion of the flavor palette, and its textures inspire all kinds of descriptions. Thus, red wines can be sweet or dry, have more or less acid or tannins, they can even include aromas from flowers to fruits. You will hear of silky, robust, strong and well-structured wines. It is not accidentally called the drink of the gods!

How to recognize a good red wine? A well-structured wine will have the perfect balance of fruit, alcohol, and tannins, and enough acidity to make you crave another sip. Wine that has no structure can be sourer or taste too strong. It’s all about good balance! Of course, everyone has their own preferences, so someone will want a powerful wine, while others will want a playful one; some like it gentle, and some quite bold. Although balance is the key, all beauty lies in diversity.

What wine should I choose? Full-bodied and heavier, medium-bodied or lighter and gentler wines? Lighter and refreshing wines are perfect for all white wine lovers who want to join the “Red Team”. They can be consumed without a meal, but they go well with food thanks to lower tannin level. Medium-bodied wines would also be approved by Goldilocks: not too light, not too bold, but just right! They have a little more tannins than lighter wines, but they don’t hit your head with their complex structure or intense flavor. Full-bodied and strong wines may not be for everyone, but that is why these wines excite all the senses. They also come to the fore with rich and stronger food because they are bold enough to make their flavors shine. 

If you still don’t know which wine is right for you, don’t worry! Our staff know their wines, so you will certainly not be thirsty (or hungry). 

The golden rule for pairing food with wine: lighter and gentler wines are reserved for lighter dishes like chicken and seafood, while full wines require heavier dishes like steak and pasta.
