In South Florida, the average high has plummeted from July’s 91 degrees to a snappy 88 in October. We stash the flip-flops, dig out the sneakers.
Vineyards India In warm-weather states, the seasonal shift is marked by subtle changes, like the arrival of pumpkin spice lattes and our annual grumble about the first, far-too-early holiday decorations.

Red Wine In India
When I first started getting serious about wines, I wasted a lot of time trying washed out, bland, or bitter Italian wines, mostly industrial-grade paint thinner that came disguised in Chianti bottles. I got pretty frustrated with wine until a friend suggested I try an Argentinean Malbec. It was a revelation. Here was the type of wine I was searching for, rich, delicious, and fragrant. I had finally found an example worthy of the mystique that surrounds wine.

Maybe it is a heady mix of nationalities involved in the wine trade; much of the wine is made by Italian Argentinians who seem to make better wine in South American than in Italy (at least in my price range), but there are also Americans such as Paul Hobbs, Frenchmen such as Michel Rolland, a few Portuguese (Finca Flichman), and many freshly transplanted Italians such as Alberto Antonini of Altos Los Horigas currently in Argentina. What is really magical about Argentina is the quality of its wines; the intense, high-altitude sunlight and near-desert conditions cause its grapes to produce intensely flavored wines.
Vineyards India Another aspect of Argentinean wines that I love is the effortless organic culture in the vineyards. The high-altitude and dry air are perfect for viticulture and the vines are seldom bothered by insects or diseases which means that few if any agricultural chemicals have to be used.

In Tuscany itself, the wine that is being talked about is from Maremma, an "underdog" region, bordering the Mediterranean coast.
Wine To India Firenze and I have a sort of a weepy connection. The last time I was here, I sat on a bench outside the Duomo, shedding inexplicable tears at the perfection of it all. This time, the waterworks are Negronifueled, but just as contemplative — the inexplicableness of life and all that jazz.

You can make a ritual of Spritz, if you are in Verona or Venice or Perugia or even in Firenze. You can indulge in the deadly Negroni (equal parts gin, vermouth and campari, served up with a twist of orange) listening to an open-air, non-ticketed but magical concert. Or you could drink wine.
A small Porongurups winery with links to an obscure religious group, the Benedictine Christ Circle, and to the very beginning of the Swan River Colony settlement in the early nineteenth century has taken home a swag of trophies and medals at this year’s Qantas Wine Show.
