10 Interesting Facts About Wine

There’s nothing better than Italian wine and food. After a long week, nothing is better than coming to your favorite restaurant at the Lake of the Ozarks and enjoying a good Italian meal and a glass of your favorite wine. Li’l Rizzo’s has uncovered some interesting facts about this delicious drink:

1. According to the Guinness Book of World Records the largest bottle of wine is 13 feet and 8 inches tall and 3 feet and 11 inches in diameter. It was filled with 817.34 gallons of wine.

2. The “legs” on the wine doesn’t determine the quality of the wine, but rather the alcohol content. The more legs you see, the higher the alcohol content.

3. In Japan, there is a spa where you can swim in tea, coffee and wine. We like our wine, but we’re not sure about swimming in it. Would you?

4. Red wines are fermented with grapes that have their skin on, while white wines are fermented without the grape skins.

5. The largest wine cellar by bottles of wine is the cellars of the Milestii Mici wine-making plant in Moldova. It contains over 1.5 million bottles of wine and are stored in 34 miles of underground galleries. The first bottle was stored in 1968 and new vintages are added each year.

6. The oldest bottle of wine is believed to be nearly 1,700 years old. It is on display at a German museum.

7. The most expensive bottle of wine ever sold was a six liter Screaming Eagle Cabernet Sauvignon 1992 bottle. It sold for a half million dollars in 2000 at a Napa Valley charity auction. It was only available for a limited time in 1995. However, it may have been sold at a high price because it was a charity auction. So, technically the most expensive bottle of wine is...

8. The 1947 Cheval-Blanc is widely recognized as the most expensive bottle of sold wino in history at a whopping $304,375. In 2010, it was sold to a private collector at an auction in Geneva. That must’ve been one impressive bottle of wine!

9. The world’s oldest person, 122, attributed her old age to a diet of olive oil, wine and 2 pounds of chocolate a week. Wine, chocolate and olive oil? We’re in!

10. Did you know there is a wrong way to hold a glass of wine? You are supposed to hold the glass by the stem and not the bowl because the heat of the hand will raise the temperature of the wine. Don’t worry though, we won’t judge you here at Li’l Rizzo’s.
