La Revolución del Vino

Durante los últimos años hemos visto como ha florecido un creciente interés por el consumo de vino. No hay que ser muy sabio ni acucioso para darnos cuenta de que en todos los rincones del planeta nacen nuevos aficionados, incluso en aquellos lugares en donde no se produce la vid ni existía previamente una cultura del vino,.

Las razones para esta explosión de enofilia son tan variadas como marcas y tipos de vino existentes en el mercado. Por un lado tenemos el caso de los “nuevos entusiastas”; esos que han sido motivados por el deseo de expandir sus horizontes culturales. Por otro lado están los “fashion”; o sea, aquellos que sin percatarse, y a pesar de sus preferencias, se han visto inevitablemente arrastrados por el furor de la moda. Un poco más allá, pero no menos conspicuos, se encuentran los “body-conscious”, o mejor dicho, los que se toman ocasionalmente una copita de vino tinto, aunque se la den de abstemios, para beneficiarse de sus atributos medicinales o cosméticos. Al final del amplio espectro nos encontramos con los “connaisseurs” de toda la vida, o sea, los que siempre han gustado de un buen caldo y ahora su interés se ve reforzado con la creciente calidad y oferta de la industria vinícola mundial.

Cualquiera sea la motivación (todas muy válidas y justificadas), lo cierto es que los avances científicos y tecnológicos han permitido desarrollar y  democratizar el mundo del vino de una manera nunca antes vista, hasta llegar al punto en el que hoy en día es posible disfrutar de buenos caldos a precios muy razonables, e incluso de disfrutar vinos procedentes de los rincones más apartados del planeta.  Sobre este particular, debemos destacar que la supremacía en la industria vinícola que antes ostentaban los países del Mediterráneo se encuentra ahora en franca competencia con la entrada en escena de nuevos actores, como lo son el caso de Estados Unidos, Sudáfrica, Australia, Nueva Zelandia, Chile y Argentina, por nombrar solo los más conspicuos, que han sabido sacar provecho de sus terruños y fusionar los conocimientos del viejo mundo con los avances de la ciencia para colocar sus productos en el mapa global.

No obstante, y a pesar del boom y del entusiasmo reinante, hay algo que debemos tener muy en cuenta, y es que el vino moderno, el vino que consumimos y degustamos hoy en día, tiene muy poca o ninguna semejanza con el vino que se consumía en la antigüedad, o incluso con los vinos que se consumían hace menos de un siglo. La vinicultura, al igual que todas las actividades humanas, ha sufrido grandes cambios y ha sido testigo de innumerables eventos, algunos de ellos muy traumáticos, pero que han sido determinantes en el proceso de darle la forma y esencia al vino hasta llegar al producto que conocemos en la actualidad.

En nuestro segmento  “Todo sobre el Vino”, publicaremos regularmente artículos en los cuales viajaremos en el tiempo, haciendo un recorrido por los pasajes, eventos y personajes que hicieron posible su transformación a través de los siglos. Por lo pronto, entregamos a nuestros lectores esta breve introducción, a manera de bienvenida a nuestro blog, y con la certeza de que nos seguirán visitando para leer y compartir con nosotros un trocito de la apasionante historia  del Néctar de los Dioses.
