Wein für alle!

Die Fähigkeit, die feinen Fäden zu erschnüffeln und zu entwirren, die sich zu den komplexen Aromen des Weins verweben, ist für die Verkostung unerlässlich. Versuchen Sie, die Nase zuzuhalten, während Sie einen Schluck Wein trinken; Sie werden feststellen, dass die meisten Aromen erstickt werden. Ihre Nase ist der Schlüssel zu Ihrem Gaumen. Sobald Sie lernen, Wein richtig zu riechen, werden Sie die Fähigkeit entwickeln, Aromen zu isolieren, ihre Entwicklung und Interaktion zu beobachten und ihnen bis zu einem gewissen Grad eine Sprache zu geben, um sie zu beschreiben.

Das ist genau das, wozu Weinfachleute - diejenigen, die Wein herstellen, verkaufen, kaufen und über Wein schreiben - in der Lage sind. Für jeden Weinliebhaber ist es die Belohnung für all diese Anstrengungen.

Obwohl es keinen richtigen oder falschen Weg gibt, Geschmack zu lernen, gelten doch bestimmte "Regeln".

Zunächst einmal muss man methodisch vorgehen und sich konzentrieren. Finden Sie Ihren eigenen Ansatz und verfolgen Sie ihn systematisch. Natürlich sollte nicht jedes Glas oder jede Flasche Wein auf diese Weise analysiert werden. Aber wenn man wirklich mehr über Wein wissen will, muss man etwas Hingabe zeigen. Gewöhnen Sie sich an, sich jedes Mal, wenn Sie ein Glas Wein in der Hand halten, eine Minute Zeit zu nehmen, um alle Gespräche zu unterbrechen, sich von Ablenkungen abzuschotten und Ihre Aufmerksamkeit auf das Aussehen, die Aromen, den Geschmack und den Abgang des Weins zu richten.

Sie können diese mentale Checkliste in einer Minute oder weniger durchgehen, und sie wird Ihnen schnell helfen, die Himmelsrichtungen Ihres Gaumens zu erfassen. Natürlich erfordert das Nippen an einem gekühlten Rosé in einem Pappbecher auf einer Gartenparty nicht die gleiche Anstrengung wie das Eintauchen in einen gut gereiften Bordeaux, der in einem Glas von Riedel Sommelier serviert wird. Aber das sind die Enden des Spektrums. Fast alles, was Ihnen wahrscheinlich begegnen wird, liegt irgendwo dazwischen.

What A Coke Does To Your Body In 1 Hour
I'll be the first to admit that I love Coca Cola. But it's absolutely horrible for us. A very detailed infographic supplied by has officially proven again how bad Coke is for your body (WE KNOW). The American CDC has said that 25% of Americans drink soda on a regular basis which is a hefty reason why obesity has run rampant. Sugar is the main culprit since an average can of soda can contain 3 tablespoons of sugar and 4 tablespoons if in a 12-ounce-bottle. Coke is one of the most popular soft drinks in the United States with a massive marketing empire so there will never be a day where we won't see it somewhere. But there comes a time where you need to take a moment and see what you're putting into your body. Let's take a look : All it takes is ONE Coke : First 10 Minutes : 10 teaspoon of sugar hit your system. (100% of your recommended daily intake.) You don't immediately vomit from the overwhelming sweetness because phosphoric acid cuts the flavor allowing you to keep it down. In 20 Minutes : Your blood sugar spikes, causing an insulin burst. Your live responds to this by turning any sugar it can get its hands on into fat. (There's plenty of that at this particular moment.) In 40 Minutes : Caffeine absorption is complete. Your pupils dilate, your blood pressure rises, as a response your liver dumps more sugar into your bloodstream. The adenosine receptors in your brain are now blocked preventing drowsiness. In 45 Minutes : Your body ups your dopamine production stimulating the pleasure centers of your brain. This is physically the same way heroin works, by the way. In 60 Minutes : The phosphoric acid binds calcium, magnesium, and zinc in your lower intestine providing a further boost in metabolism. This is a compounded by high doses of sugar and artificial sweeteners also increasing the urinary excretion of calcium. After 60 Minutes : The caffeine's diuretic properties come into play. (It makes you have to pee.) It is now assured that you'll evacuate the bonded calcium, magnesium, and zinc that was headed to your bones as well as sodium, electrolyte and water. As the rave inside of you died down you'll start to have a sugar crash. You may become irritable and/or sluggish. You've also now, literally, pissed away all the water that was in theCoke. But not before infusing it with valuable nutrients your body could have used for things like having the ability to hydrate your system of build strong bones and teeth. Why you should care? - Coke weakens bones and teeth. - Increases your chance for getting diabetes. - It slows your metabolism, especially long term. - Aspartame in the soda leads to disease and organ irritation. - Coke has negative affects on fertility. - It leads to weight gain. - Can worsen asthma or increase risk for heart disease. - Cancer, Osteoporosis, and Kidney issues are common in people who drink soda. - It's expensive to continually buy it. - Diet sodas are a scam and false advertising. All soda is bad for you. - No nutritional value. - Raised cholesterol and specifically increased belly fat. Do I need to say more? Coke or soda for that matter is never a good idea. (But don't worry, I still love it.)
