How To Drink Wine
In this video a bartender from the UK talks about the ideal wines for different seasons. The bartender also gives a brief background of which country each wine originates from and shows you some methods of pouring wines.
I am Marco, bar manager from 64th and Social and I am going to give you a quick introduction to our wines. I'm going to start with a Malbec. One hundred percent Malbec grapes Argentina wine.
Beautiful to enjoy with steaks. It's a fully-bodied drink, fully-bodied wine. Ripe, nice, tasty blackberries.
It's perfectly balanced, not strong, not aggressive. good to drink on any occasion and even in summertime with a little bit of ice or a little bit chilled. It could be always perfect for an occasion.
To carry on we are going to go to a quick introduction to our Rose, as everyone knows favorite wine for the ladies. It's a nice wine. It's a perfect wine to have it under the sun or on a really hot summer day.
We can enjoy this wine with some fruit, and with some cheese. Small and soft cheese obviously. You can have a bit of creamy and red berries with it.
The ladies for sure will love it as we see that they keep all them. Now we are going to carry on with our Pinot Grigio. As we know Pinot Grigio is a best one obviously, typically Italian wine.
Best fashion, best food, and very nice wine. I'm not going to say the best one because Argentina has really nice wine also. This is a wine that I will enjoy more in a summer night.
Now summer night is a really light wine, nice wine, refreshing but at the same time it's got a bit of hit inside, it's got a bit of warming up. It's grape that grows in cold weather so it has to be strong to survive and to preserve all of the taste that this wine carries. This one in particular is really nice and trite finish.
You've got a bit of butterscotch and creamy taste on the palette at the beginning. And it's ideal to enjoy especially on a really hot summer night. Now we are going to carry on with how to pour a wine with and without the measures.
We definitely need the empty glass. We have in the UK two different methods to pour glass is a 250, 175 for the small glasses and we use the thimbles on the bars that don't use measures. We prefer the glasses without measures because they're more nice and elegant.
That you would do in front of the customer just to ensure that the measure is correct you would use your thimble. Now what you would do if the customer doesn't see is use your hand and your experience which is going to get you a certainly perfect pour of 175 mils.
