Wine Blends, What to Know



 Not all wines are from a single grape variety. Over many years wine has become blended to enhance flavor. Here is an Infographic about wine blends. Most blends are done to enhance smell, color, or flavor but usually 80% of a single grape variety. Except Pino Noir which is never blended.

 After enjoying reading the Infographic on blended wines also enjoy reviewing all the unique wine posters I well on the internet, world wide. Some can be edited, add text, or other info on posters, cards, shirts. Click link to see lots more wine art.

Improve Your Coffee Making, easy steps




 Sometime our coffee is better than others, there are reasons why. The major reason is a dirty coffee pot. Old coffee residue, oils, burns, all enter into the new coffee and spoil the taste. Same with tea. First step is to be sure things are clean.
 Next easy step is to know what size coffee grounds your maker recommends. From course for French Press to to extra fine for Expresso, the grinds can change the flavor.
 Additions, although I do not add salt some say to if you by chance bought a bitter batch of beans. I little, and I mean little salt cancels out bitterness. I rather add sugar are sugar substitute and the liquid  flavorings sold in stores.




 Of course adding friends and comical coffee mugs also helps. I sell those, no not friends, but comical mugs at my art studio store on the internet. Take a look. They make great gifts.
