Enjoying wine

In order to be able to enjoy a wine really unclouded and to fully exploit its potential, appropriate preparation is essential, depending on the type of wine.

Reason for the wine enjoyment

First of all, the question arises in what company, in what mood and in what place? In the restaurant by candlelight, in the beach café with a view of the sea and the sparkling starry sky, with business friends after the conclusion of a contract, in front of the flickering fireplace in cosy togetherness, to the fish, to the grill, at the Heurigen (wine tavern), after a walk, on the third rainy day in Tuscany or on the 50th wedding anniversary. The ambience plays a role that should not be underestimated. Who has not experienced the deceptive magic of a holiday wine? A wine should be enjoyed at the "right time", at best when it is ready to drink or ideally when it has reached its peak (see also under the keywords aging and durability). And, of course, the wine to be enjoyed should also go well with the food or harmonise with it if it is drunk with the meal.
