Ask The Wine Ladies


Well it's been an unbelievable year, 2013 has, with a few challenges yes, but with many jubilations too. We've so enjoyed connecting with all of our TV show guests, our fans, listeners and readers, and fellow wine lovers and look forward to an even better 2014!

With the clock ticking we've finally penned our Top Ten New Year's Resolutions that we'd love to share, and hope to hear back with some of yours!

A toast to 2014 for wine lovers everywhere, "Cheers, Prost, Salute, Salut!

1)We will, no matter how painful or arduous, dedicate ourselves to fulfilling our doctor's orders of having one glass of red wine per day... Got to keep the ticker healthy!

2) We promise to never drink any wine before its time!

3) Our new found love for hiking will continue with a promise to scale another peak. Mount Everst,Mount Kilimanjaro anyone? We're signed up for another year!

4) YES!!! Yet another reason to continue to enjoy our red wine! Keep the Pinot Noir coming, one of the top grapes for "resveratrol" composition!
A glass of red will give you about 640 mg of Resveratrol. Resveratrol is a naturally occurring antioxidant found in the skin of red grapes. Research has shown that Resveratrol can reduce or slow down certain signs of aging. Let's pull a Jack Benny, 39 AGAIN! Fill her up... Actually not quite, leave enough room to swirl, about 1/6 to 1/4 the volume of the glass, depending on the size of the glass. Swirl, sniff and savour!

5) Discover a new wine, a new grape or a new region at least once a week and tweet to our friends.

6) Write a book.

7) Explore organic and biodynamic local wines to help reduce our carbon footprint,

8) We love connecting with fellow wine lovers, enthusiasts and wine novices around the world, our goal is to try to bring the world of wine together, one person at a time, one tweet at a time, one sip at a time

9) Every day presents a new opportunity to be the best we can be, enjoy, embrace and be challenged. As Oprah says "Cheers to a new year and another chance for us to get it right". We're with you Oprah, live, learn and live what you learn!

10)... And finally for the Top Ten's #1 New year's Resolution, we promise to continue to spread our playful approach and wine tasting philosophy to the most unsuspecting wine aficionado!



Happy New Year!

Dear Wine Ladies,

 

This may sound like a silly question but I’m truly at odds on the best way to deal with a crumbly cork! Last night, once again, while trying to open a bottle of wine the cork was dry and crumbly. The harder I tried, and the further I drove the cork screw, the more the cork crumbled and then finally ended up in fragments in the bottle. Is there a way to properly extract a crumbly cork?

Dear Wine Ladies,

I noticed your column in 24 a month or two ago and look forward to reading it now every Friday. I'd like to ask, once a bottle of wine is opened, and only half emptied, how long would it keep if re-corked, or had the air pumped out and capped? Is the best place in the fridge, or store at room temperature?

Dear Wine Ladies,



We're throwing a party over the holiday weekend to celebrate the move into our new home, which we have finally taken possession of. It's been a long while since we've entertained and are unsure as to how much wine to buy. Is there some kind of formula to figure out how much we will need?
