Origin of red wine
Beginning between the Euphrates and Tigris rivers, red wine developed into a worldwide commodity for gourmets and fun-loving people. No wonder the Greeks learned from the Persians, the Romans from the Greeks, and everyone from the Romans. Today, red wine can be found almost everywhere. In different types, colors and tastes. But always excellent to enjoy.
Well-known red wine countries are:
But the list goes on. With partly exotic wine-growing nations. Who would have thought that Brazil, China or Canada have vines?
When it comes to the actual origin of wine, today's major wine nations of the world play no role. In Georgia, between the Black Sea and the Caucasus, the beginning of the cultivated cultivation of grapevines is assumed. Why not try a wine from the country of origin of viticulture for a change? Buy wine with history.
Known red wine grape varieties
Primitivo - Quite complex
The Primitivo red wine eked out an existence for a long time as a color-giving blending component in cuvées. Since the rise of Zinfandel, the American name for the Primitivo grape, the red wine from southern Italy has become one of the most popular wines of all. The relatively high sugar and alcohol content make dry Primitivo an epicurean treat for the palate. Enjoy top sellers like the Sessantanni Primitivo di Manduria.
Merlot - From the heart of viticulture
Anyone who knows Bordeaux red wine also knows Merlot. The grape's intense red, velvety smooth body and supple taste make Merlot a favorite of many French people. In the country of origin of the grape variety, the red wine enjoys high prestige and is largely responsible for the famous wines from Bordeaux. An elite predicate for a French red wine.
Montepulciano - Alla salute!
The grape variety from Montepulciano in the Abruzzo region is of a powerful and fruity nature. The aromas of wild berries, plums and vanilla characterize the delicious wine that has already captivated all of central Italy. However, do not succumb to the risk of confusion with the wine Montepulciano from the village of the same name in Tuscany. Also delicious - but just not a grape variety.
Pinot Noir - Noble Grape
Pinot Noir red wine, also called Pinot Noir, is considered one of the finest wines of our time. Its cultivation, due to the high vulnerability of the vines, is extremely difficult and laborious. However, the result is worth the effort. The enticing red of Pinot Noir wine lures with soft tannins and a bouquet of cherries, plums, blackberries and strawberries. A grape variety of exquisite taste.
Zweigelt - Is worth it
The Blaue Zweigelt takes its name from Friedrich Zweigelt and has taken Austria by storm. The sour aroma of cherries and wood makes the taste of Zweigelt red wine unique. Even outside the Alpine republic, Zweigelt is gaining a steadily growing following. It simply goes well with a cozy snack.
Most popular red wine grape varieties
In total we have red wines from 147 grape varieties.
Red wine food recommendation
A nice red wine, a rich meal, but do they actually go together? "Red wine with red meat" is always true. To be a little more precise:
Light-bodied red wines like St. Laurent, Pinot Noir, Gamay or Zweigelt go well with roasted vegetables, starchy foods, poultry and cured or smoked meats.
Medium-bodied red wines such as Merlot, Sangiovese or Grenache are also served with beef and game.
Full-bodied wines such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz and especially Malbec even take on strong dishes such as grilled meats and hot and spicy foods.
Lovely and sweet red wine or even dessert wine go very well with desserts, but know how to surprise with smoked meat.
VINELLO tip: Food and wines from the same region almost always go together.

Things to know about Red Wines
Well tempered - At what temperature to drink a red wine? Light wines taste best at 10-16 degrees Celsius. Heavy red wines are enjoyed at a drinking temperature of 16-18 degrees Celsius. If the red wine is too warm, the alcohol taste comes to the fore. If it is too cold, it prevents the bouquet from developing.
Wine storage - How to store red wines? Store cool, dark and horizontal, without large fluctuations in temperature at about 12-14 ° C.Pay attention to the respective wine descriptions in our wine online store.
Wait and drink wine - How long must good red wine breathe? Allow wines such as Shiraz, Malbec and Primitivo some time to develop. A young Pinot Noir already comes into contact with enough oxygen when poured. With old wines, try a sip first after opening. Then decide whether to decant the wine. If you notice tartar in a red wine, decant it and enjoy early rather than late.
Closure - How long does an open bottle of red wine keep? What to do when the bottle is full but the pleasure is over? Fumble the cork into the bottle with the red-colored end first and put it in the refrigerator. Here the wine will keep for about 3 days. The less air in the bottle, the better. Therefore, either pour into a small container or use a wine pump.
