Life after serving the Navy seal could only go two ways – tough or tougher. That is why when we retire, we make sure to find a way cultivate an activity that would help us cope with the post-trauma, and help us recover ourselves and become normal and happy citizens again.
I have shared the story of a retired navy seal who turned into a plant lover just so he can fully be happy with his life after the seals.
Now, I will share the story of another friend of mine from the seals who now lives Chicago who has turned to winery as his path to a fresh start, and has started a small wine business.
While we chitchatted about life, we came to discuss about his business, wherein I got to learn a lot of things.
On a funnier note, he told me the story of why the biggest enemy is wine is water. If water is mixed with wine, the taste of the wine will be affected, making it lose its beauty and exquisiteness in taste, he said.
Of course, he also shared that this is not an absolute case, because there are wines that are placed in ice before it is served while there are wines that needed to be kept in room temperature and free from all types of moist and dew. However, when the wine is not yet set to be opened, the wine should still be kept in a room that is not too humid nor too cold, to prevent the bottles from sweating or from accumulating dew. Even if it is the type of wine that needs to be placed on ice before serving, proper temperature for it should still be achieved, because once you put it on top of ice, you should serve it all up soon after. You can never go back to storing it again after exposing it to too much moisture, because the taste of wine will never be the same again. People who do not fascinate themselves in the craft of wine making and wine tasting may not be able to taste the difference. But for those who are passionate about wines, a single change in water content of the wine can already trigger a change of taste and they will be able to distinguish it.
To keep your wines free from water contamination, you must store it in a place with good roofing condition, so that rain would not drip through and contaminate the wines.
The room should also have the right temperature. You can also store it in wine cellars that will be far from any type of water formation.
Lastly, you should ensure that you have a good water line or pipe system that is safe from any possible water damage. For my friend, he frequently visits http://www.mywebpal.com/illinois/water-damage-chicago so that he learns more techniques and information about handling water damage.
Wine and water are both good drinks for the body. Water is an everyday necessity that needs to be taken by the body. Wine on the other hand, is a drink that people share for special occasions or for romantic gestures. While they are both great for the body, they do not go well together and so it is important that one does not contaminate the other. It may not be a hazard to the health if they do mix up, but wine will lose its essence when too much water is mixed in it as much as water will not be able to serve its purpose of cleansing the body when it has wine mixture in it.
