Ask The Wine Ladies

Dear Wine Ladies,

Last weekend my husband and I were invited to a Peruvian restaurant where we enjoyed a delicious dinner and a new drink called Pisco. I had a Pisco sour and my husband had a Pisco on the rocks. We both loved our aperitifs! Can you tell me a little about Pisco and where it can be found? We had never heard of it before but learned it is the national drink of Peru.

Dear Wine Ladies,

Around what temperature should we be storing our wines? Do the white wines and red require a different temperature?

Dear Wine Ladies,

How does one know when or not to cellar a red wine? I have quite a few that have collected over the years in cold storage in my basement.

 Dear Wine Ladies,

Over the last couple of years I've been enjoying Zinfandel more and more, particularly the ones that indicate coming from old vines. I've only ever seen them from California and was wondering if it is a grape that orginate's from there or if other places make them? Speaking of "old vines" how old do they have to be, to be able to claim that on the label?

Dear Wine Ladies,

I've heard you talk about enjoying wines with chocolate many times and have dabbled in finding appropriate pairings. I'd love to throw a small party featuring the two but am not really sure where to begin. Could you offer me a couple of suggestions as to how many wines and how many types of chocolate I should offer, as well as the format the evening might take?
