Wine in the Sea – level 3

12-05-2017 15:00

A Croatian winemaker and diver has found a unique way to combine his two passions – he matures his wine at the bottom of the sea.

The seabed is perfect for ageing wine, as it is dark, quiet, and has a stable temperature. The winemaker says that the resulting wine has a much more subtle taste than wine matured in cellars.

Each bottle is placed in an amphora, which is a clay container used since ancient Greece, and the amphora is sealed with wax to protect it from seawater.

Difficult words: subtle (fine, delicate), seal (close securely).
