Wines with ITC Hotels!

Everyone has had wine, or at least heard of it once in their lifetime, but not many of us know everything that one needs to know about them.

WINE is an alcoholic beverage made from fermented grapes or other fruits. The natural chemical balance of grapes lets them ferment without the addition of sugars, acids, enzymes, water, or other nutrients. Yeast consumes the sugars in the grapes and converts them into alcohol and carbon dioxide. Different varieties of grapes and strains of yeasts produce different styles of wine.

That's not all. There's a lot more things that one should know about them. I admit, I didn't know much about them until I came across #WineWednesday by ITC Hotels. ITC Hotel puts forward a sommelier on its social networks in an interactive session and talks all about WINES!

This week, Mr. Shaariq Akhtar was ready to answer our queries on Italian Wines. Italy is home to some of the oldest and the most spectacular wine - producing regions in the world.

The clock strikes 4 and the questions were bombarded.

Starting with the Famous Italian Wine Region and Famous Wines.
To which, Mr. Akhtar replied : 

So, now you know which wine to pick if you want to have some really great time.

There are many people whom I came across and they found non - sweetening wines to be sweet. So, I had to ask this question.
- Its mere fruitiness.

Corvina has been on an easy spot when it comes to Italian Wines. Here's what sommelier had to say about it :

Many people think that RED WINES are Feminine drinks. But noo, Sommelier Shaariq Akhtar says that it totally depends upon the choice of the one who's drinking it. Though, some of the Red Wines like Valpolicella & Sassicaia are absolutely loved by ladies.

It is said that, The older the wine, The better. But, what makes this phrase true?

Are you storing your wines well?
#WineWednesday also had some great facts!

Most of the times we consider the chef's choice in a restaurant. ITC Hotel's Sommelier, too has his favorites. Make sure you never miss the expert's choices.
An Interactive yet knowledgeable session is what ITC Hotels provide each Wednesday on #WineWednesday on its social media platforms.
