Wine in the Sea – level 2

12-05-2017 15:00

A Croatian winemaker and diver found a way to combine his two hobbies. He matures his wine at the bottom of the sea.

The seabed is perfect for ageing wine. It is dark, quiet, and the temperature is stable. He says that the wine tastes better if it matures down there.

He puts each bottle into a clay container and sealed with wax, so it is protected from seawater.

Difficult words: mature (give the wine time to get better), ageing (maturing), clay container (something like a bottle made from clay – earth), seal (close securely).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
