Wine has seen a resurgence during the pandemic
Before the world was struck by the coronavirus, wine sales around the world have witnessed a dive in popularity. It was due to the fact that the millennials are turning away from wine as their alcohol of choice.
According to Nielsen, US based research firm, the Covid-19 pandemic has increased the sales of several wines. Specifically, Sauvignon Blanc, Moscato, Pinot Noir, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Riesling. All of them saw sales rise by at least 30% or more, with Sauvignon Blanc leading at 38%.
Sauvignon Blanc tops the charts as one of the best white wines. Indeed, it blends well with other white grapes and grows well in multiple regions worldwide. Also, it appeals to a wide range of consumers with its unique taste and cost.
Sauvignon Blanc is quite flexible when it comes to food pairings. One cuisine in particular the wine fits with is seafood. The likes of shellfish, ceviche, and sushi.
What is Sauvignon Blanc all about?
Within its home country of France, Sauvignon Blanc is the primary grape used in Sancerre. Sancerre is a region in the eastern part of the Loire Valley known for wine.
“Folks often think of Sauvignon Blanc for summertime and warm weather, but it’s actually among the most versatile wines out there—making it perfect to enjoy year-round. That said, it’s undeniably great for this time of year: Its signature crisp acidity makes it ideal for pairing with a wide selection of foods, while its light body means you can easily sip it on its own on a hot day.”Jeff Cichocki, winemaker at Bonterra Organic Vineyards, California.
