In the second episode of The Wine Atelier 101 Series, we’ll talk about Red Wine. And I think French writer and poet Henri Murger really captured people’s great passion for red wines when he said, “The first duty of wine is to be red. Don’t talk to me of your white wines!”
In today’s episode, I’ll be going over the process of making red wine, potential health benefits, terms associated with red wines, and many other must-know details so you can dazzle everyone with your red wine knowledge and gain vinous street cred among your wine-loving friends! I’m also answering a question from a red wine-living listener regarding those dreaded red wine headaches – BIG hint: they’re NOT from the sulfites!

RIEDEL WINE DECANTER ($37): I love the shape of this practical decanter which makes it easy to pour AND easy to clean. It’s perfect for infusing those young red wines with oxygen or removing older red wines from their sediment. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!
