This week’s collection of wine stories worth sharing includes two articles from Business Insider and two science-related articles. [level-members]

Quick Chill
First, we have a way to chill a bottle of wine in little more time than it will take you to read this column. (Which is why we’ve listed it first …) The results are a little, uh, tepid. (Sorry, we couldn’t resist.) Still, we’ll be trying it this weekend just to see. You should try it, too.

What’s Trending in Wine
What’s hot, what’s not, at least according to Business Insider. Beyond canned wine, I’m not sure how many of these are actually trends, but the more people willing to chill red wines and explore beyond the usual suspects, the better for all of us. Read the full article here.

The Science of Light and Color

If you’re eating, stop right now. There’s pee-pee involved. Weird but interesting account of one urologist’s journey into winemaking. Might not be everybody’s cup of tea, but it’s an interesting read. The full article is here.
