We all have different opinions about different things, but one thing is for sure, we all love wine and think it is one of the most sophisticated drinks known to mankind. There might be many wine fanatics out there, but they might not know everything there is to know about wine.


There are many entertaining unknown facts about wine; for instance, according to historians Armenians introduced wine to the world in 4100 BCE and then the Phoenicians shared wine around the Mediterranean and introduced the ancient Greeks to it. The Greeks, along with Romans loved wine so much they decided to dedicate it to their gods. The Greeks dedicated wine to Dionysus, while the Romans chose Bacchus to be the god of agriculture and wine. With the rise of the Roman Empire, Romans started to grow their own grapes to make their own wine within their realm.

Pairing Guide

Now, it is not new that there are certain meals that taste better with certain types of wine. But do you know all of them? According to Filet Mignon tastes better with Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, or Malbec. These wines make the beef taste more delicious than if you were to eat them alone. Chicken Roulade tastes better with a glass of Chardonnay, or white Burgundy. Roasted duck tastes sweet by nature, which is why you should match it with Burgundy, or Pinot Noir since either will match the sweet flavor of the duck. If you’re going to eat Pork-chop, then it’s better to pair it with Sauvignon Blanc, or Beaujolais. But, if you’re having Grilled Salmon Fillet for dinner then eat it with sips of Pinot Gris, Pinot noir, or Chardonnay.

Grape Variety

Did you know that there are about 1300 types of grapes that are used to make wine? Mind-blowing, right? However, the most popular grapes that are planted in large quantities are the ones that are used to make Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Airen, Tempranillo, and finally Chardonnay. You should also know that grapes have this chemical called damascenone, which is responsible for the floral whiff that oozes out of wine.


You are probably familiar with swirling your glass of wine to release its aromas, but did you know that you should only fill a third of the cup with wine so that you can leave some space for the floral aromas to form? Speaking of aromas, wine glasses are curved from the top and are tulip-shaped, so that the aromas don’t escape your glass. You should also know that a 75cl bottle could fill up to six wine glasses; also if you’re vegan or a vegetarian knows that a flash bladder or eggs are sometimes used as fining agents.
