Stuff You Probably Didn’t Know About Wine

It’s no fun being at a cocktail party when you’re stuck in some boring conversation and don’t really know what to say. But the next time that happens to you, you can be prepared with these offbeat wine facts you can share while you swirl your glass of Pinot Grigio.

  • Not all wines are vegan – Some use animal byproducts like gelatin during the filtration process.
  • Wine-flavored Kit Kats are a thing – Kit Kats are huge in Japan and they come in all sorts of flavors, including wine. So you can’t just pick up the vino variety at the Kroger, but you can get them on Amazon.
  • Italy has a free wine fountain that’s open 24/7 – This amazing fountain just opened recently and it’s enough to make us want to book a flight now.
  • Drinking “to one’s health” started in ancient Greece – It all came from the host drinking the first cup of wine to show his guests that he wasn’t poisoning them. That’s reassuring, right?
  • Toasting started in ancient Rome – Romans used to drop a piece of toasted bread in each glass to balance out excessive acidity.
  • You’ll be amazed how old the world’s oldest bottle is – It dates back to 325 A.D. and you can see this super old wine for yourself in a museum in Germany.
  • Hammurabi’s Code (from 1800 B.C.) had a law about wine – It called for counterfeit wine sellers to be punished by drowning in a river. With a punishment that harsh, we’re guessing it wasn’t much of a problem.
  • Women are better wine tasters – Women are great at wine tasting because it has a lot to do with smell and women – especially those of childbearing age – have a better sense of smell than men. Who knew?
  • Not all wines get better with age – Don’t save that bottle, 90% are meant to be consumed within a year of production.
  • Oenophobia is the fear of wine and it’s a real thing – And we’re truly glad we don’t have it!
