holiday wine

A rather pejorative term for the quality of a wine that is associated with positive and delightful memories of a vacation. This was enjoyed in a rustic restaurant on the edge of a pine forest with a view of a sea bay in bright sunshine or at romantic sunset with soft background music in the company of friends and / or your beloved partner and tasted phenomenally. The description of the "delicacy" is exuberant in mainly hedonistic Form like dreamy, adorable, overwhelming, stunning and unforgettable. Still drunk with wine and this happy experience, you buy not just one, but a whole box Bottles and is happy to open one of them at home when the opportunity arises and to reminisce.

And now comes the big disappointment. What on vacation Wine of the century came immediately or how "a wine to the hero" tasted, now tastes horrible, barren and empty. Was the wine spoiled in the hot trunk on the way home, or maybe was it faulty before? No, the only logical explanation is that it wasn't the wine that inspired us at the time, but the wonderful atmosphere. Who does not know such examples with Italian (e.g. Chianti - With around 7,000 producers, there is inevitably a quality range from "Plörre to top wine"), Greek (e.g. Retsina ) or Spanish wines (e.g. Rioja - analogous to Chianti), and of course also with Austrian (e.g. Uhudler ) or German wines (e.g. Liebfraumilch ). An optimal one Weingenuss is always dependent on the occasion, accompaniment, mood and location.
