Different Styles of Wine
A Journey into Viticultural Diversity

The world of wine is a rich and diverse universe, offering a multitude of styles to satisfy every palate. From still wines to sparkling effervescence and sumptuous dessert wines, each style has its distinctive characteristics and unique nuances worth exploring.

Still Wines
These wines are timeless classics, appreciated for their elegance and balance. Still wines encompass reds, whites, and rosés that are not sparkling. Among them, iconic examples include Châteauneuf-du-Pape for reds, Burgundy Chardonnay for whites, and Provence Rosé for rosés.

Sparkling Wines
Symbols of celebration and elegance, sparkling wines bring a touch of joy to any occasion. Champagne remains the undisputed king of this category, but other regions also produce sparkling wonders, such as Italian Prosecco and Spanish Cava. These wines offer a palette of flavours ranging from fresh fruit notes to aromas of toasted brioche, delighting the palate with every bubble.

Dessert Wines
Rich, opulent, and indulgent, dessert wines are a true treat for lovers of sweetness. They are made from grapes harvested late or affected by noble rot, which concentrates natural sugars and intensifies flavours. Among the most famous examples are Sauternes from Bordeaux, Vin Santo from Italy, and Tokaji from Hungary. Tasting them is a sensory experience, with notes of honey, candied apricot, and caramel enveloping the palate.

Tips for Appreciation
To fully savour the different styles of wine, it's essential to adopt an attentive approach. Take the time to observe the colour, smell the aromas, and taste each sip with delight. Experiment with food and wine pairings to discover unexpected combinations that reveal new dimensions in each glass. And above all, don't be afraid to explore and venture into unknown wine territory, as that's often where the greatest discoveries lie.
