Wine Stories Worth Sharing: February 8, 2018

February 8th, 2018

There’s no real evidence that letting your child drink wine from your glass will lead to a life of crime, but if it does don’t expect to send her a subscription to Wine Spectator. Plus, how does cork’s aging affect wine’s aging? And (corrupt) first-world wine problems. [level-members]

Good news, bad news when it comes to letting your child taste of your wine. Would be interesting to see the results of a study like this in Europe where societal attitudes toward wine are much different than ours in the U.S. 

Do you have a guilty wine pleasure? A wine you know a “serious” wine person shouldn’t like? Great news – you can blame your parents!

Do cork’s pores close up as they age? And other wine-aging questions.

The very definition of (corrupt) first-world problems: your assistant makes off with $1,000,000+ of your fine wine.

And wine problems further down the economic ladder.
