Wine is perhaps one of the finest specimens of human creation that personifies sophistication, style, charisma, aura and class. You just can not relish wine the way you might feast upon other drinks, be it a Scotch or a Russian vodka.
No matter wherever we are, before pouring this majestic beverage into the thin tall glasses, we try to make up a perfect ambiance for that session. And no wonder, wining is an extension of personality for many. Kudos to the old French saying that goes, In water one sees one's own face; But in wine, one beholds the heart of another!
