A STORY OF WINE AND TAPAS:
Wine and Tapas are like good friends who, even though they have not seen each other for a long time, every time they get together, have a million things to talk about, to laugh about, and to enjoy together. They become this perfect combination of aromas and flavors that not only delights your senses, but also enhances the culinary experience.
The relationship between wine and tapas is one of the best. And there is no better place to experience this relationship than in a restaurant with several light hearted styles that – just like red and white wine – have many similarities and differences between them. The social act of having a meal with good company, and sharing an unforgettable experience is what forms part of the Charlotte Wine and Tapas Week.
“The average age of the consumer has dropped, and the millennials and Gen X’ers are the exciting part of the wine business,” he told Business Insider. “The millennials were the first generation where men and women preferred wine or beer over spirits. The millennial generation was the first where women drank as much wine as men.”
According to Wine Spectator, millennials consumed 159.6 million cases of wine in 2015, which is equal to about 42% of all wine drunk in the US last year. This has led to the rise of wine delivery and check-in apps, as well as products that promote convenience, like wine sold in a can. And in the age of social media, the urge to share your most recent finds and good taste has been a boost to winemakers.
