Campania EP:8/48

The fame of this land was well described by the Romans, they knew the region as Campania Felix, which translates into English as "land of bounty and joy". Its fame as a great wine-producing region faded with the collapse of the Roman Empire. But today, Campania counts some of the highest densities of DOCs and DOCGs (quality wine areas) within Italy. Campania is thriving with re-planted ancient varieties that once grew on these lands some 2,000 years ago and were buried under volcanic ash and pumice in 79 A.D. We will explain the wine term oxidation in our experiment.

Alsace wines tend to be dry, but these days wines can be more diverse in styles including some residual sweetness but that is not often indicated on the label, so that can make challenging for us drinkers.

Bordeaux Left Bank EP:23/48

The Bordeaux Left Bank lies close to the Atlantic Ocean and along the Gironde river. Vineyards receive more rainfall and soils are gravellier than the Right Bank. Cabernet Sauvignon is dominant as it benefits from the warm gravels and drainage to ripen fully. The finest wines were listed in the classification of 1855 which we’ll discuss, and in our experiment, we’ll talk about aging ability.

Champagne EP:24/48

We’ll be diving into the world’s most famous sparkling wine: Champagne, made from Chardonnay and/or Pinot Noir and Meunier. The magic of Champagne – its bubbles – was originally considered an undesirable fault. But it’s the result of natural fermentation, or re-fermentation, as yeasts transform grape sugars into alcohol and carbon dioxide, which we’ll demonstrate in our experiment.
