    About Us

    About us

    Growing up in Italy, the cuisine culture was our favorite part.

    The wine, the pasta, everything. Wine especially is a big concept around the world and Italian wine is famous in many many countries. However, the taste of it still lacks the pure Italian flavor. The reason for this is the region where the wine is imported from. You have to be very selective and very cautious. Each wine has their own strong and weak aspects, and we love nothing more than focusing on the strong ones. For that, the wine has to be selected carefully from each region.

    We decided to focus on this matter starting in Hong Kong. Once we saw this method is appreciated amongst the people there, we decided to broaden our horizons and have now ended up in Europe. Hereby is not only the wine, but also the pastas and sauce mixes for example. A big part of original Italian cuisine can be delivered to your doorstep. Why? Because there is no feeling better than tasting a bit of home, everywhere in the world.

    The art of wine tasting?

    1. See the wine

    1. See the wine

    The first step toward tasting the wine actually begins with seeing it. This is more than a quick glance as you pour the bottle into a glass. Instead, take a moment to evaluate the wine itself. Notice the color, clarity and consistency of the wine by holding it up. Take note of the wine’s depth of color.

    Is the wine watery and pale, or deep and dark? White wines range in color from crystal clear, to light green, to shades of yellow and even deep golden brown. Meanwhile, red wines vary between red, ruby, purple and brick. And while white wines gain color as they age, red wines lose color and begin to turn brown. Be mindful of these elements as you evaluate the wine and move through the tasting process.

    2. Swirl The Wine

    2. Swirl The Wine

    After a brief time, gently swirl the wines around the glass. Swirling enlarges the surface area of the wine in contact with the air. This exposes the wine’s legs and releases new aromas. A wine’s “legs” refer to the “tears” which run down the side of the glass when you swirl it. A wine with strong legs tends to have more alcohol, which generally indicates a denser texture.

    As you swirl, be sure to hold your glass by its base or stem, so the temperature from your hand doesn’t warm the wine. Once you’ve given your wine one or two good swirls, it’s time for the next step.

    3. Smell The Wine

    Next, smell the wine. Dip your nose in the glass and give the wine two or three lengthy sniffs. As you smell, pay attention to what aromas might be present within the wine. Wine aromas result from three main factors: the grape variety in the wine, the vineyard location and the winemaking process. For reference, consider aromas from popular foods you enjoy. Some major wine categories include fruit and floral, spice and vegetable or oak. For an added bonus, download an aroma wheel like this one to give you a scope of possible smells

    4. Sip the wine

    Then, give the wine a sip. Fill your mouth about halfway full, then subtly swish the wine around. Don’t swallow right away, but let the wine sit on top of your tongue as you breathe through it. Moving the wine around coats your mouth and taste buds, and releases any extra aromas or flavors.

    Various areas of your tongue can taste different things; for instance, the tip recognizes sweetness, the inner sides identifies sour, the outer sides taste saltiness and the back of your tongue acknowledges bitterness. Roll the wine around in your mouth, then evaluate the taste. Consider the following flavor characteristics: body, acidity, tannin, sweetness and fruitiness. Make note of any aromas or flavors you experience.

    5. Swallow The Wine

    Finally, the time has come to swallow. Tilt your head back and let the wine slowly run down your throat. After swallowing, notice the aftertaste, or finish, of the wine. The better the wine, the more defined its finish will be. A strong finish will linger longer on your palate, with sweet hints of the wine flavor remaining.

    During this final phase, evaluate the overall experience of the wine. Did you like it? Why or why not? What impression did the wine leave? What food would you pair with it? Write down what you liked or didn’t like to define your favorites as you move forward.

    To clean your palate post-wine tasting, eat a plain cracker or drink water to rinse. Then, move on to your next glass! Keep these tips in mind as you explore the world of alcoholic wine.
