As soon as they do not call wine: rich, affectionate, mysterious, divine. It can make warmer and brighter any cold autumn evening. Portuguese poet Fernando Pessoa perfectly said: "Life is good, and wine is better." But all this is only about real, natural wine, "without chemistry" and extra additives.

In vino veritas - the old truth that "Truth is in wine." But how to choose among the thousands of bottles of shmurdyak, ink and tinkers real wine. Which without "chemistry"? I propose to remember the basic rules for choosing wine and conduct a couple of experiments.


Typically, the wine is bottled in a volume of 0.75 liters. Note: the bottom of the wine bottle must be concave! Do not buy wine if it is bottled in a flat bottom. Most likely, this is a fake.
By the way, the color of the bottle also says a lot. According to experts and technologists, the wine bottle must be colored so that the light does not affect the quality of the drink.


Many believe that a bottle of real wine is surely corked with natural cork. In fact, this is not so. Naturally, the cork from the cork tree indicates the status of the drink.However, many quite decent wines are sealed with capron or plastic corks. Stocks of Portuguese cork are also not infinite, but because traffic jams are becoming more expensive every day. Now, for example, one cork costs a whole dollar!
If there is a cork, compare the name of the wine and the manufacturer on it. At the traffic jam may be a batch number. If there is no data on it, most likely, the wine is not factory bottled, but fake.


Wine in packages, most consider unreal. But this is not always true. Indeed, the majority of tetrapacks in stores contain frank cruel, which even a bad wine cannot be called a tongue. However, there are many Chilean wines of decent quality, spilled it in tetrapacks.


As a rule, even in good natural wine a little sediment can be found on the bottom. In aged wines settles tartar. But, if there is a lot of sediment and it is flocculated - do not take this wine. It is with impurities. The consistency of the sediment is easy to check by simply flipping the bottle. If the sediment does not fall - the wine is not good.


Naturally, you can write a lot on it, but most people do not read it. And if they had read, they would probably not have bought wine from wine materials made, say, in the Crimea, but spilled somewhere in Poltava.
By the way, the label will help to identify real vintage wines with long aging. After all, if the bottle is many years old, its label will also look old, and not shine with fresh polygraphy. If the inscription on the label with spelling errors - you can be sure that the wine was poured in the nearest garage or right in the back of the store where it is located.


There is an opinion that natural wine leaves no blue marks on the tongue. In fact, this is not so. Wine leaves traces. So check the quality and authenticity of the drink in this way will not work.

Test with glycerol

There is a simple experiment by which you establish the authenticity of the wine at home. It is enough to drop a drop of glycerin into the wine. If the glycerin remains colorless, you have purchased real wine. If the droplet gets a reddish or yellowish tinge - in wine, the mass of dyes and impurities. Worth glycerin penny, and you can buy it at the pharmacy.

Bubble test

Wine does not mix with water. You can check whether the wine is real in front of you in this way: Pour some wine into a small bottle, pour water into a bowl Pinch the bottom of the wine bottle with your finger and lower it upside down in a bowl. Then release your finger - if the wine does not flow out of the bubble, and the water remains clear, it means that the wine in the bubble and in the bottle is present.
