Each Wine Wednesday we share words of advice from your favourite winos, oenophiles and beyond . . .
Why You Should Put Your Wine in the Blender
Maxime Bilet, coauthor of Modernist Cuisine, says that instead of waiting up to two hours to decant wine the traditional way, you can improve the taste of wine in seconds with what he calls “hyper decanting.”

Question of the week
The question: How much wine should I buy for a wedding?
The answer: That’s a classic folk tale; you’ve just opened a can of worms with the opened bottle of bubbly.
You, of course, are the best judge of your crowd’s thirst. But I can offer a guideline. While not intended to encourage overconsumption, of course, especially where driving is involved, the absolute minimum is half a bottle a person – not including bubbly for a toast or hard liquor at the bar. The night will be long and joyous, and there will be food and dancing. There will be abstainers in the mix, but others will imbibe more than their share (if my experience as a wedding guest is an indication).

Happy Wine Wednesday everyone!
