What is the most important thing in any wine? Manufacturing process? Climate? Barrel quality? All of them also matter, but still the basis of any wine is a grape variety. For hundreds of years, mankind has been able to breed thousands of different grape varieties: some of them are known all over the world and are used for winemaking in dozens of countries (Merlot, Cabernet Franc), some are rare and grow only in a certain area (they are called autochthonous varieties). Obviously, each variety is unique and affects the taste of the wine. When visiting wineries to discover new varieties for our store, we at Wine Russian House are committed to diversity. That is why, when choosing wines on our site, you will find the most common and widespread grape varieties: Merlot Cabernet Sauvignon Chardonnay Shiraz Sauvignon Blanc What we love about them is their amazing ability to change flavors when grapes are grown in different conditions. Merlot from the south of Russia will give completely new impressions of Merlot from France: it is the composition of the soil, the number of sunny days, the presence of the sea nearby (or its absence), mild or dry climate. On the other hand, we love to explore new flavors. Thus, several interesting blends and wines from autochthonous grape varieties appeared in our assortment. Are you just as curious? Treat yourself to one of the following wine types: Rkatsiteli (white wine with notes of apricot and buckwheat honey) Saperavi (red wine with notes of banana and black pepper) Krasnostop (red wine with notes of cherries and rose hips) Have you found your favorite grape variety? Or are you still discovering the world of wine? Which one would you like to try?
Summer is a period of laziness when you want to enjoy life to the fullest! Obviously, this means taking holidays, wearing bright and light clothes and preparing simple meals. What could be better than having a picnic in the park with your family or friends? Soft grass, sunshine, loved ones... and a bottle of good wine! Yes, when going on a picnic, it is important to think about soft drinks. Here's our perfect plan for the perfect park get-together: Grab a large blanket and basket (details create atmosphere) Prepare snacks and a light meal. Stock up on enough water for everyone. Take a bottle of wine and glasses. Don't forget tissues, sunscreen, and a corkscrew. OPTION ONE: APERITIF If you are going to a restaurant in the evening or returning home for a hearty meal, an aperitif is also a great choice. Preparing for it is as simple as preparing for the ABC. Prepare nuts, cherry tomatoes, radishes, olives, bread sticks, mini toast or baguette, your favorite ham, or light salads like Caprese or Melon + Ham. Pair these appetizers with a bottle of rosé: Myshako's aged Cuvee sparkling wine is a great choice. Visit the Wine Russian House store and order a rose right now! OPTION TWO: LUNCH Want a real meal instead of a handful of nuts? Prepare something light and fresh! Our top summer favorites are: Greek Salad (sliced cucumbers, tomatoes, green bell peppers, red onions, olives and feta cheese) French Tuna Salad (potatoes, canned tuna, beans, olives, boiled eggs, tomatoes, lettuce and some lemon dressing). Since these dishes come from the shores of the Mediterranean, don't forget to add olive oil! Pair them with a bottle of Lefkadia Valley Sauk-Dere Riesling, which you can find in stock at the Wine Russian House website! What are your favorite activities this summer? Have you already been to the picnic?
However, their combination can be quite complex. Most people think that steak goes well with dry red wine, but two questions arise from this rule: Which grape variety should you choose? What type of steak goes well with wine? And what does "good wine" mean for a steak? How should it be paired? Today we will reveal some of the secrets of this magnificent dish. Tannins. Red wines contain varying amounts of tannin, a component that gives the drink a dry taste and balances the fat content of the meat. The taste of a steak can take on new colors with a glass of appropriate wine, and your experience will be unforgettable. When preparing a fatty steak, such as ribeye, it is better to buy wine with a high tannin content. Grape sort. In fact, there are dozens of great combinations, because the steak can be cooked in different ways. A versatile choice for any type of red meat is Malbec. Another great option is Cabernet Sauvignon: at the Wine Russian House you will find 100% Cabernet Sauvignon from the SORT winery. Pleasant velvety tannins and bright fruity aromas will make your evening wonderful. Age. However, it's a little more difficult than choosing wine for a steak by grape variety. The age of the wine also matters. If you're not a fan of raw meat and prefer to eat your steak well done, we recommend choosing wines that are earthy in color (or ones that have aged longer). Here's a little secret from wine collectors: you can buy bottles while the wine is still very young and keep them for several years. All pairing rules are optional, as two people's tastes cannot be the same. The best advice we can give is to try different options and choose the one that works best for you. The Russian House of Wine will help you with this: you can choose on our website a selection of 6 different bottles and serve each of them depending on the purpose and choice of dish.
Sparkling wines are traditionally associated with a festive mood. What could be happier than the loud pop of a cork flying out of a bottle, right? However, sparkling wine is not just bubbles. It is one of the best drinks for any occasion - party, dinner, aperitif or picnic. ⠀ Although the most famous and expensive variety - champagne - is produced strictly in one region of France, the geography of sparkling wines is extensive - from the Napa Valley in California to the coast of the Russian south. Sparkling wines are made from the most beloved grape varieties - Pinot Gris, Chardonnay or Pinot Meunier. ⠀ By the way, can you name two countries that are world leaders in the consumption of sparkling wines? Italy and France, you think? Oh no, that's not true! The Germans drink more sparkling wine than anyone else in the world, and Russia comes in second! If Germany cannot boast of having large areas for growing vines, then Russian winemaking products can be purchased directly at the Wine Russian House. Here you will find top quality sparkling wines from the best winemakers in the country, and each variety has been personally selected by us. ⠀ Getting acquainted with this drink, you need to know about the classification: ⠀ • Extra brut: very dry • Brut: dry • Demi-sec: pretty sweet ⠀ Brut is the most famous and common type of sparkling wine. Its acidity makes it perfect for many occasions and dishes. It goes well with numerous dishes. For example, Brut goes well with fruits and desserts, fried chicken or savory dishes. And if you choose Brut white from Myskhako winery from 100% Chardonnay in our store, you can enjoy it with hard cheeses. White flowers and a ripe apple in the nose will be the perfect addition to any summer evening! ⠀ On the other hand, sparkling wine was invented in order to make aperitifs bright and memorable. It goes well with light salty snacks, popcorn or nuts. If you want to add a touch of celebration to your meeting with friends or family, pink brut from the Myskhako winery, which can be purchased on our website, is a great choice! And, of course, don't forget to serve the drink cold! A bucket of ice and salt is perfect for this! Happy and bubbly tasting! 6dReply
There is no clear winner in the battle of wines. The choice of bottle is a matter of taste, occasion, season and of course the dishes served. When it comes to choosing wine for dinner, it's important to pair it with the food in the right way so that both the drink and the food taste brighter. ⠀ Chita and white wines are completely different when you look at them from several angles. Each of them has its own characteristics and features that should be considered before putting the bottle on the table and opening it. Let's discover some secrets together! ⠀ RED WINES ⠀ Traditionally, red wines are great for romantic dinners and family gatherings. However, you should not boldly choose a bottle of red wine based on this factor. The main factor to consider is the dish that will be served. ⠀ Red wine, for example, dry red Cabernet Franc from the Myskhako winery, which is one of the favorites of Russian House of Wine customers, goes very well with dishes: ⠀ - Meat dishes and juicy steaks - Game, ribs, roasted lamb - Burger (yes, it can be paired with wine) - Eggplant dishes - Hard cheeses ⠀ When you open a bottle of red wine, don't forget to give it some time to breathe. After spending several years in a pressurized bottle, the drink needs to get in contact with oxygen. Red wine should not be drunk cold. The optimum serving temperature is between 60-65 degrees Fahrenheit (16-18 degrees Celsius). WHITE WINES White wines are lighter, fruitier and fresher. This is a great addition to a summer meal or light meals. The choice of dishes to pair with white wine, such as 100% Chardonnay from the SORT winery, which you purchase in our online store, should be different. Heavy meat dishes will not pair well with honey, peach, and vanilla flavors. What to serve with white wine? ⠀ - Fish and seafood - Dishes with creamy sauce - Poultry - Pasta - Salads - Vegetable dishes - Mushrooms Unlike red wine, a bottle of white wine should be served chilled. The ideal solution is to store the bottle in the refrigerator and take it out 20 minutes before serving. Lighter wines like Chardonnay are at their best at 46-50 degrees Fahrenheit (8-10 degrees Celsius). And remember one golden rule: you make the rules in your house. So, after a light meal with a bottle of white wine, it's perfectly fine to pair a bottle of red with hard cheeses. After all, life is about savoring the moments!
