For many people, the rich aroma of freshly fried bacon is what mornings smells like, whilst the fruity smells of wine are a sign that evening has arrived. However, what would happen if we got rid of coffee beans and replace it for a glass of merlot at 8am?
Whilst this may sound outrageous, countries such as France and Spain are known for glugging an alcoholic beverage in the morning. Just imagine being someone who can drink responsibly, even in the morning, and say: “yes, I will have just one glass with my poached eggs this morning”. So, considering that we’ve fully adopted European coffee culture, it may be time to consider again how we drink wine.
“Wine in Europe - particularly in Spain, France and Italy - alongside food, is a very important part of life,” says Rob Edwards, managing director of The Vino Beano wine merchant. “I don’t think people in those countries drink wine, or any alcohol for that matter, to get drunk. Wine with a meal is about more than that. It’s the coming together of friends and family, and enjoying the time together. Wine merely compliments that”.
Of course, we are unsure whether anything will ever beat the caffeine kick in the morning. But when it comes to dining in the morning, wine is also better matched with food as the flavours are more delicate.
