jamie goode's wine blog: Amphorae

Tuesday, November 20, 2007


Doug of Les Caves has sent me a couple of pictures of the amphorae used for the fermentation and elevage of Cos' Pithos wine (a red wine from Sicily that I blogged on a couple of weeks ago). I thought I'd share them here.

Dear Mr Jamie

The photos are quite interesting, i didn't know the amphorae is still in used for wine making.
Since you had tasted their wines, how is it different organoleptically?

i just found out your blog and will be checking the archives later and also the other blogs linking to your blog, massive stuff you got here.
Have a Good day to you and a productive weekend ahead!
Thanks for writing these stuff

do you know that winemaking in amphores is very common (and traditional) in some regions of Portugal, esp. the Alentejo?

Of course it could be a big difference between using them since hundreds of years for traditional purposes and reinventing them for a new kind/aesthetic of modern wine.
