wine questions


Keith said that ‘old world’ whites are aged in new oak barrels, NOT steel. However the wines I buy online specifically state that they are aged in steel, new oak barrels,or old oak. ??? Keith also said that white wines are made with red grapes minus the skin. Yet I discovered white wine is made with green grapes, not red grapes.. I would appreciate clarification.

I’ll answer your questions, starting with the newsletter and then address your statements about the Foundation Wine Course class you attended last week, the Old Word/New World class.

Wine Review Newsletter Subscriptions

The newsletter is a free service we offer to everyone. It is emailed once a month, usually the second or third week of that month. If you registered for the newsletter, it is emailed to you. If you are not receiving it, one of four things are happening:

  1. It is getting trapped in your spam or bulk email filters.
  2. You unsubscribed to our emails.
  3. Your email server is blocking our emails.
  4. You used a secondary email address when you registered.

All four of these issues are beyond our control. You can look at your account to verify you are enrolled in our newsletter program:

If you cannot receive our newsletter, you can always get the same content on our wine review blog.

Foundation Wine Program

The issue isn’t that I gave you misinformation, but that you misunderstood the class lecture. Your take away was far and away not what was taught in class. I am deeply concerned about your confusion over these subjects. We will have a quiz in class tomorrow to see if others shared in your confusion.
