bar

Since 1978 in Austria and Germany valid unit of measurement (from grch. báros = heavy) for the pressure (until then atü = atmosphere overpressure). The actual SI-unit (Système international d'unités) is Pascal - 100,000 Pa result in one bar. This indicates the pressure in a sparkling wine bottle; see sparkling wine.

There is a vast number of sources on the web where one can acquire knowledge about wine. But none has the scope, timeliness and accuracy of the information in the encyclopaedia at wein.plus. I use it regularly and rely on it.
