  • Food and wine matching al veronese

    Posted on March 26, 2012 by Enotriaadmin

    Fiona Beckett, whose website www.matchingfoodandwine.com does exactly what it says in the link, has just returned from Verona where she ate at the legendary osteria Al Pompiere ('The Fireman's Place'). The (many) dishes served were matched to Bertani wines. One dish, tagliatelle with artichoke hearts, looked like it might defeat any red thrown at ...

  • Mr Bertrand breaks the pomegranate

    Posted on February 12, 2012 by Enotriaadmin

    Morgenster owner Guilo Bertrand breaks the pomegranate

    This is why we love working in the world of wine; stories like this from our new Somerset West agency Morgenster surface:

    "Yesterday we started with the Morgenster harvest and today was the traditional breaking of the pomegranate to rejoice the starting of the new harvest.
    "The ripening of the pomegranate has traditionally signalled the readiness of the grapes to be harvested. Today we obviously have more accurate techniques to determine the perfect time for harvest. The Greeks have a tradition to squash a pomegranate at New Years and weddings, and we have slightly adapted this tradition...

    "Every year Mr. Bertrand breaks a pomegranate as the first grapes go into the cellar, as a symbol of fruitfulness and good luck.
    Yesterday we harvested the first Sauvignon Blanc grapes, which were cooled in a cooling container overnight. Red and white cultivars are cooled to 10°C , the cool temperature of the whole bunches before crushing preserves the elegant flavours of the grapes.

    "Today the first grapes went into the cellar and the 2012 winemaking season has started!"
