Not all wines improve with age. Most wines are made to be drunk when they’re bottled, while a smaller quantity are designed to be aged to allow flavours to develop, thus improving with time.
3. Are all sparkling wines called champagne?

5. What's the difference between Pinot Gris and Pinot Grigio?
Pinot Gris and Pinot Grigio are slightly different styles of dry white wine made from the same grape variety. Known for its flavours of pear, apple and moderate acidity, Pinot Gris is increasingly popular in Australia and is a riper, fuller-bodied wine that goes well with roast meats such as veal, pork and chicken. Pinto Grigio is a mid-weighted dry white wine variety, paired well with salads, seafood and Asian meals.
6. Can I drink red wine with white meat?
Most people prefer to pair white wine with fish and white meat and red wine with red meat. However, enjoying your wine is the most important thing, so by all means if you prefer to break the rules, go for it!
