Frequently asked questions
How can I work with Every Glass Matters?
Every Glass Matters is always keen to work with new companies, brands and people. The best way to do this is via email;
HOW DO I LEARN MORE ABOUT WINE?
Taste, taste, taste. Try everything you can get your hands on and start reading a variety of books and blogs. If you are keen to get qualifications then I would thoroughly recommend WSET. They offer a range of courses to suit all knowledge levels.
Im a student how do i enjoy wine?
Students are just as capable of enjoying good wine. Most universities have wine societies that offer a range of tasting events allowing you to try a diverse panel of wines at a reduced price. If your university does not have a society or are looking to begin one then please contact me and I can offer my guidance.
Where else can I find Every Glass Matters?
Where should I go to buy wine?
There are many companies that sell wine in the UK. We are extremely fortunate in the array of diverse wines we are able to purchase. I always like to support small, independent retailers but I strongly believe that you can find some outstanding examples of wine in all the major supermarkets.
I only like one type of wine, what should i do?
I am asked this one a lot, whether it be white, red or a particular grape variety many people believe they only like one type of wine. First I would say its absolutely fine if you want to stick to what you like, drinking wine is about enjoyment. To get more out of this fascinating subject then I would suggest you start to explore similar wines to those you love. This could be a grape with similar characteristics or the same variety from a different country or region. If you have decided that you don't like a style or variety then I would recommend trying to acknowledge what it is you don't like and then looking for another example that doesnt have that characteristic.
I want to keep my wine fresher for longer, how?
First you need to decide how long and what you are willing to spend. The cheaper option, a hand held vacuum pump gives you less time and is of lower quality but can increase the open storage time but 3-4 days. I would personally recommend the Coravin system. This device removes oxygen from the bottle replacing it with non-toxic, non-reactive argon gas keeping your wine as fresh as if it was unopened. Currently this system is only available for wines with a cork seal.
