Came across a great source on Twitter. Someone in Berlin is supplying the winosphere with Random Wine Facts. Some are rather delightful. Here are a few recent Tweets:
- Research by Australian Prof. Larry Lockshin is quoted: most buyers spend an average of 38 seconds choosing a bottle of wine.
- The word ‘Wine’ is mentioned 521 times in the Bible.
- The US grows more Gewürztraminer than Germany and Austria combined. Its +-2500 hectare are about equal to Alsace in France.
