OAUSA Net - June 08, 2017 – Wine in the Outdoors

#1

Post by toms » Tue Jun 06, 2017 6:49 am

This week’s net will cover the subject of wine.

Wine is a great companion when recreating in the outdoors as long as done responsibly. That means after the day’s activities and in a safe place like around a camp fire. Many people enjoy a glass of wine with their meals while savoring the fresh air and scenery of the great outdoors. In fact, I’ve found that a glass of wine with a home-cooked meal prepared in a Dutch oven while sitting around the campfire with friends is one of the nicer pleasures of life.

Our returning guest and our favorite Wine Master is Lynda KI6SXI. Lynda is a wealth of information on wine and will talk about wine making, wineries, wine tasting, corks, box wines, reading labels and much more. She will try to answer any questions you have.

We would like to have your input on the wines you enjoy.


Remember – no drinking and driving!!
See you on the Trail!

PRODUCT SPOTLIGHT

The spotlight this week just happens to coincide with our topic - wine!!! When you spend your hard earned money on a very good bottle of wine, but are not able to finish off the entire bottle, preserving it for another day always carries the certain risk that it will not be as good, or in most cases, even close.

Over the years there have been a few different approaches to preserving the quality and taste of a just opened bottle, but they were prohibitively expensive or just didn't work. As long as air (or more precisely, oxygen) is introduced into the bottle, the flavor will start to change. Wine Vacs are a good approach to this problem, but, at best, they prolong the flavor for a day, and even then, it still suffers.

A perfect solution now comes from Coravin, https://www.coravin.com/wine-systems.html. Their wine preservation openers offer a unique means to avoid the effects of oxygen on your expensive bottle of wine, thus keeping it available for enjoyment long after the Initial opening of the bottle.

The Coravin system is not for everyone. It is a little pricey, but if you are investing your hard earned dollars in good wine, it will enhance the enjoyment of your purchases.
