Pinot

When people say "a glass of Pinot" are they referring to Grigio or noir?

How to best cool a room to 55f that is 650ft^3 via /r/wine

How to best cool a room to 55f that is 650ft^3

Right now it stays an ambient 65f, but I must get colder for long term storage. I'll be storing some wine for short term (1-5yrs), some for longer (10-20yr). No windows in the room and I insulated 3 of the walls, the remaining wall is up against the dirt outside and quite cool all year round.

My only issue is the adjacent room where I may put a Whisperkool 3000 tends to get to around 75 in the summertime due to it containing our water boiler.

Any suggestions are welcome.

How do I learn what a good expression of a specific varietal or region is? via /r/wine

How do I learn what a good expression of a specific varietal or region is?

I'm trying to learn more about wine and train my pallette. Currently I'm going down a French syrah rabbit hole and learning that it is often either cofermented or blended with viognier. Should I just be tasting syrahs that are blended or should I be trying a straight syrah, a viognier, and then a blend to see exactly what the viognier is adding to the mix? In this experimentation I'm trying to keep costs around $15 but I really don't know enough to get started and I don't know anyone to help guide me outside of waiting for an online syrah class to pop up.

A bit of wisdom from Terry Theise.

“Don’t worry what you are ‘supposed’ to feel [about wine]…Just daydream and release your imagination. Believe me, it’s more fun than trying to grab a wine, to nail the poor bastard, to dissect it in order to show how cool your palate is. What a pitiable waste! It’s like ignoring a rainbow so you can balance your checkbook.”

Winery and lunch between Barolo and Florence? via /r/wine

Winery and lunch between Barolo and Florence?

My wife and I will be spending a week in Barolo and a week in Tuscany. Half way through, we will be driving from Barolo to Florence. Do any of you have a recommendation for a place to stop for lunch and wine tasting about half way during the trip? I was thinking possibly somewhere in Bolgerhi but it's too far south of where we would be traveling. Thank you!
