We’re baaAAaack! After a Covid forced three week hiatus, Shelley and Phil are BACK in the Wine Time Fridays studio! And this week, it’s all about Chianti! Since today is National Chianti Day, a Chianti is what’s in their glass. Although a few coughs are there, the energy on the episode is noticeable. #HappyFriday! And we can say again, #ItsWineTime! #Cheersing

Wine Time Fridays Wine Word of the Week – Body Light, Medium, or FullA wine’s body refers to how much you feel the weight of the wine on your palate (in your mouth). Body isn’t the result of any one particular characteristic in wine, but rather a culmination of several characteristics interacting together as the wine sweeps across your tongue. For example, wines with high alcohol levels (14%+ ABV) or high sweetness give the impression of a fuller body. Depending on your preference and mood, you might like a light-, medium-, or full-bodied wine and can use these three terms to steer the wine steward to the perfect choice.
