Wineworks contains informative "Tidbits" that will vastly improve your knowledge of wine. A few examples that are included in the production:

- Grape vines tend to thrive in regions that are situated on the western side of continents.

- Some say that the early 60s marked an era where many Americans, influenced by the style of President John F. Kennedy and his wife Jacqueline, began appreciating and adapting fashionable trends such as the European custom of drinking wine with meals.

In the 1960s Robert Mondavi gave the ordinary Sauvignon Blanc some oak aging and renamed it Fume Blanc. When released, Fume Blanc was an immediate success and became a wine of choice in America.

- To crush or not to crush that is the question. Winemakers may decide to crush the grapes before fermentation when making hearty, rich wines like cabernet. But they may allow the grapes to go through what is known as carbonic maceration without crushing to produce lighter, fruitier red wines like Beaujolais. During carbonic maceration the juice begins fermenting inside the skins before crushing.

- For fun, try tasting the same wine out of two different glasses a generic wine glass and one that is designed specifically for that particular varietal and see for yourself.

- Why are common scents like grapefruit and apple often used to describe wine? Professional wine tasters choose universal terms so their descriptions will be understood across cultures and continents.
