The love of Wine
thousands of years men have been interested in wine to such a degree
that it could almost be called a cult. Indeed it used to be a staple
part of diet due to its high energetic level; however since the second
half of the 20th century, wine has become a pleasure and also leisure.
The average quantity consumed has dropped
dramatically, but the quality itself has improved. Men drink less wine,
but better wine. Consequently the wine industry has had to improve its
production in response to this new situation, and huge efforts in terms
of quality have been accomplished.
Worldwide competition has increases especially
among the different wine coming from the southern hemisphère. Countries
such as France, Italy, and Spain, which were historically
wine-producing countries, have had to change in order not to be left
out in the globalisation of the production and consuption.
This wine guide will mature over time and describe
the principals of denominations. It will also provide some information
about the grape types, wine elaboration, and wine tasting
