Origin of red wine
Beginning between the Euphrates and Tigris rivers, red wine developed into a worldwide commodity for gourmets and fun-loving people. No wonder that the Greeks learned from the Persians, the Romans from the Greeks and everybody from the Romans. Today, red wine can be found almost everywhere. In different forms, colors and tastes. But always excellent to enjoy.
Well known red wine countries are: France, Italy, Spain, Germany, Argentina, Australia, Chile, South Africa and Portugal.
But the list goes on with partly exotic, partly surprising wine producing nations. Who would have thought that Brazil, China or Canada have vines? When it comes to the actual origin of wine, today's great wine nations of the world do not play a role. In Georgia, between the Black Sea and the Caucasus, the beginning of the cultivation of grapevines is assumed. Why not try a wine from the country of origin of viticulture for a change? Buy wine with history: The powerful Saperavi-Cabernet 2014 from Château Mukhrani takes you back to the early days of wine.
Well-known red wine grape varieties
Primitivo - Quite complex
The Primitivo red wine eked out an existence for a long time as a colour-giving blending component in cuvées. Since the meteoric rise of Zinfandel, the American name for the Primitivo grape, the red wine from southern Italy has grown to become one of the most popular wines of all. The relatively high sugar and alcohol content make dry Primitivo an epicurean palate pleaser of all senses.
Merlot - From the heart of viticulture
Who knows Bordeaux red wine, also knows Merlot wine. The intense red of the grape, velvety-soft body and smooth taste make Merlot a favourite of many French people. In the country of origin of the grape variety, the red wine enjoys high reputation and is largely responsible for the famous wines of Bordeaux. An elite predicate for a French red wine - For everyone to enjoy.
Montepulciano - Alla salute!
The grape variety from Montepulciano in the Abruzzo region is of a strong and fruity nature. The aromas of wild berries, plums and vanilla characterize the delicious reputation that has already captivated all of central Italy. However, do not succumb to the danger of confusion with the wine Montepulciano from the village of the same name in Tuscany. Also delicious - but not a grape variety.
Pinot Noir - Noble Grape
Pinot Noir is considered one of the finest wines of our time. The cultivation is, due to the high susceptibility of the vines, extremely difficult and complex. The result, however, is worth the effort. The enticing red of Pinot Noir wine, lures with soft tannins and a bouquet of cherries, plums, blackberries and strawberries. A grape variety of exquisite taste.
Zweigelt - Is it worth it
The Blaue Zweigelt takes its name from Friedrich Zweigelt and has taken Austria by storm. The sour aroma of cherries and wood, make the taste of Zweigelt red wine unique. Even outside the Alpine Republic, Zweigelt is gaining a growing following. It simply goes well with a cosy snack.
Red wine food recommendation
A nice red wine, a rich meal, but does that actually go together? "Red wine with red meat" is always true. To be a little more precise:
Light-bodied red wines like St. Laurent, Pinot Noir, Gamay or Zweigelt pair well with roasted vegetable dishes, starchy foods, poultry and cured or smoked meats.
Medium-bodied red wines such as Merlot, Sangiovese, or Grenache are also served with beef and game.
Full-bodied wines such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz, and especially Malbec can even take on hearty dishes such as grilled meats and hot and spicy foods.
Sweet red wines or dessert wines go very well with desserts, but know how to surprise with smoked meats.
VINELLO tip: Food and wines from the same region almost always go together.
Tips for the optimal enjoyment of red wine
Enjoying wine is not difficult. However, helping a red wine to its absolute best is connected with a few tricks. Please refer to our FAQ for helpful information.
Well tempered - At what temperature do you drink a red wine?
Light wines taste best at 10 to 16 degrees Celsius. Heavy red wines are best enjoyed at a drinking temperature of 16-18 degrees Celsius. If the red wine is too warm, the alcohol taste comes to the fore. If it is too cold, it prevents the bouquet from developing.
Wine storage - How do you store red wines?
Store in a cool, dark and horizontal position, without large temperature fluctuations. As it is in a wine cellar, so should be your storage place. An exact statement about the length of storage, can not be defined across the board. Pay attention to the individual wine descriptions in our wine online shop.
Wait and drink wine - How long must red wine breathe?
Young, strong red wines can taste somewhat tough when opened.
Give wines like Shiraz, Malbec and Primitivo some time to develop.
A young pinot noir will come into contact with enough oxygen as soon as it is poured.
With old wines, try a sip first after opening, then decide if you should decant the wine. If you notice tartar in a red wine, you should decant it and enjoy it sooner rather than later.
Closure issue - How long does an open bottle of red wine keep?
What to do when the bottle is full but the pleasure is over? Fumble the cork into the bottle with the red end first and put it in the fridge. Here the wine will keep for about 3 days. The less air in the bottle the better. Therefore, either pour into a small container or use a wine pump.

Things to know about Red wine
Wohl temperiert - Bei welcher Temperatur trinkt man einen Rotwein? Leichte Weine schmecken am besten bei 10–16 Grad Celsius. Schwere Rotweine genießt man bei einer Trinktemperatur von 16-18 Grad Celsius. Ist der Rotwein zu warm, tritt der Alkoholgeschmack in den Vordergrund. Ist er zu kalt, verhindert er die Entfaltung des Bouquets.
Weinlagerer - Wie lagert man Rotweine? Kühl, dunkel und liegend lagern, ohne große Schwankungen in der Temperatur bei ca. 12–14 °C.Achten Sie hierbei auf die jeweiligen Weinbeschreibungen in unserem Wein Online Shop.
Abwarten und Wein trinken – Wie lange muss guter Rotwein atmen? Lassen Sie Weine wie Shiraz, Malbec und Primitivo etwas Zeit zum Entfalten. Ein junger Spätburgunder kommt schon beim Einschenken mit genügend Sauerstoff in Berührung. Bei alten Weinen probiert man nach dem Öffnen erstmal einen Schluck. Dann entscheiden, ob man den Wein dekantieren soll. Stellen Sie bei einem Rotwein Weinstein fest, dekantieren Sie ihn und genießen eher früh als spät.
Verschlusssache – Wie lange hält sich eine offene Flasche Rotwein? Was tun, wenn die Flasche voll, aber die Lust zu Ende ist? Korken mit dem rot gefärbten Ende zuerst in die Flasche fummeln und ab damit in den Kühlschrank. Hier hält sich der Wein etwa 3 Tage. Je weniger Luft in der Flasche, desto besser. Daher entweder umgießen in ein kleines Gefäß oder eine Weinpumpe benutzen.
