As we live in wine country, there’s nothing more enjoyable on a hot summer day than sipping on a cool glass of wine or wine slushy, but here’s something to keep in mind. Wine experts say when it’s hot in the summer time, you can expect to feel your wine a little more as you sip! Excessive heat can quickly increase the sugars in grapes, which means the content of your bottle of wine could jump up from 14-percent to 16-percent. Yikes! While you may appreciate this, winemakers do not. They say they aim for balance in their wine, not just alcohol content, and high temperatures can mess it all up, but the heat may mean you’ll get “more bang for your buck” if your bottle heats up! Just be aware you may not be able to drink as much as you normally do before crossing the drunk line. Have fun at the Finger Lakes Wine Festival this weekend and remember to stay hydrated….with WATER!
