Why a cold glass of red is the perfect summer drink | Wine

On a hot summer’s evening, after a long hard day at work, there’s nothing I like more than to unwind with a cold glass of red.

That’s not a typo. Nor am I being wilfully perverse. A glass of lightly tannin-ed, sappy, brisk and berry-fruited gamay, from a bottle taken straight from the fridge and photogenically beaded with condensation, is as thirst quenching and enlivening as any glass of cold fizz or G&T.

It’s the very essence of a summer drink. But it’s one I come across only rarely when I’m out and about. Only in natural wine bars –

Food & Wine: Massachusetts is one of the best pizza states in America

There’s no other way to slice it: Some of the best pizza in the country is made in Massachusetts.

On Thursday, Food & Wine published an ode to the best pizza in the United States, naming the top 10 pizza states in the country and detailing where to find excellent pizza in all 50 states. Coming in at number eight on that list? Our very own Massachusetts (though we think it belongs a little closer to the number one spot, which the article’s author, Food & Wine senior editor David Landsel, gave to New Jersey).

Which countries drink the most wine? Ask Decanter

The US easily tops the list of countries that drink the most wine but global wine consumption dropped by 3% in 2020, according to the International Organisation of Vine & Wine (OIV) in its new annual report. 

World wine consumption weighed in at an estimated 234 million hectolitres (mhl) last year, equivalent to 23.4bn litres.

Go ‘green’ with your wine: Choose cans or boxes, drink local and consider farming practices

Here are some environmental factors to consider when purchasing wine:

Farming. Look for wineries practicing environmentally friendly viticulture. Words to look for on labels are sustainable, “made from organic grapes,” Demeter biodynamic and the newest, regenerative agriculture. There are several certifications that vary by country or even region, but they all show the winery’s commitment to eco-friendly practices, such as avoiding pesticides and herbicides. Many wineries follow good practices but don’t get certified for various reasons. In general, smaller family-owned wineries use fewer chemicals than the larger, more industrial producers you see in every grocery store.
