Healthy wine, good life

We enjoy wine, lots of different wine, just like you.

Mencius, who lived during the 4th century BCE, is considered by many to be the wisest sage who ever lived.  In the humanist spirit that was central to Ruism (儒家), Mencius believed in the essential goodness of humanity.  This goodness resides in every person in what he called hsin, or heart.  Heart, he tells us, is what defines us as human.  One of mencius's most influential views was his list of four innate ethical dispositions, which he treats as what Western ethicists would call cardinal virtues: benevolence 仁(rén), righteousness 義(), propriety 禮(), and wisdom 智(zhì). Each of the four virtues is associated with a characteristic emotion or motivational attitude: “The feeling of compassion is benevolence. The feeling of disdain is righteousness. The feeling of respect is propriety. The feeling of approval and disapproval is wisdom”  Meng Winery categorizes the four main types of our wine products consistent with these virtues.

Special types

Take A Look

Red Wine

Wine makers make red wine from red grapes, but this is not why the wine is red. During the fermentation process of red wine, the skins of the grapes are left on and this is what causes the striking red color of red wine. Some popular red wines include Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Montepulciano, Nebbiolo, Pinot Noir, Sangiovese, Syrah, Tempranillo and Zinfandel. Serve red wine with red meats such as beef.

仁 REN

Red Wine

White Wine

Wine makers usually make white wine from white grapes, although they may make it from red grapes as well. During the fermentation process, white wine grapes are separated from their skins so that no color comes over from the skin, leaving the wine white in color. Expensive white wines are frequently aged in oak barrels while less expensive white wines are soaked in oak chips instead. Some popular white wines include Chardonnay, Gewurztraminer, Pinot Grigio or Pinot Gris, Riesling, Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon. Serve white wine with fish and poultry.

義 YI

White Wine

Rose or Blush Wine

Wine makers make rose or blush wine from red grapes but the grape skins are only left on for a short time. This causes the wine to turn a pinkish color instead of the deep red of red wines. Popular rose or blush wines are white merlot and white zinfandel. Despite the name white, these are actually rose or blush wines. Serve rose or blush wine with fish or poultry.

禮 LI

Rose Wine

Champagne

Champagne is a bubbly form of wine that was originally produced in France. Champagne making requires the fermentation process to be interrupted and then restarted. This traps carbon dioxide particles in the bottle. Growers use three kinds of grapes, white Chardonnay, red Pinot Noir and red Pinot Meunier. Champagne can range from very dry (Brut) to dry (Sec) to semi-sweet (Demi-Sec). Serve champagne on special occasions such as holidays or anniversaries.
