Wines are named for one of two reasons: the grape variety or the region where the grapes were grown.

The first type is named after either the sole (or principle, if blended) grape variety that makes up the wine. Many times a wine is blended; you may not find that information on the label. Each country has its own specifications that dictate the minimum percentage of the named grape that a wine must contain.

The second way to classify wines, by their region, is quite common in Europe. Instead of the label dictating whether the wine is a Merlot, Syrah, or Cabernet Sauvignon; in this case, the label will say Burgundy, Bordeaux, or Sancerre. This technique is used because many of these regions are famous for a certain grape variety.

What are tannins?


Tannins are the name given to a substance made from the seeds, stems and skins of grapes. They affect the color, aging ability and texture of the wine. They cannot be tasted directly; however they can be apparent when tasting wines. They are perceived through a tactile sensation.

SWC6GBL-TB Wine Cooler: what type of refrigerant...


The refrigerant type should be listed on the name plate of the appliance, and if not, it should be noted in the compressor area. Be aware that it is illegal to vent refrigerant, and that handling of refrigerant requires certification. Hope this helps.

Oster Wine Opener---4207


Hello Georgian!

We have a friend who lives at Berkly Lake, and we went to a wine boutique if you will over near her house. I think they would know who services that unit. I can not think of the name of the store though, but it was pretty close by (3-4 miles) in a small business strip center. I know your close by, being in Peachtree.

Alternative, is to find a Oster appliance repair center. There has to be one in the Atlanta area for sure. Or really, any appliance place that services refrigerators. Heck, I (with my wife), it's her best friend) would come do it for the price of a plane ticket. Our friend could vouch for my knowledge.

Haier Wine Fridge problem


Hello bano24
Welcome to Fixya
My name is Huum,

You have a faulty cold control (temperature control)
The cold control is a temperature actuated switch and should open when the set temperature has been achieved. If the control does not open and turn the compressor off, it will continue to run and all items in the fresh food section will begin to freeze.
Check the control for continuity.
And or need a hands on service tech to diagnose this fault
