baucalis /’bɔːkəlɪs/ n. vessel used to cool wine.
Romans chilled their wine in a special vessel called baucalis. Over centuries, in fact millennia, that word was adopted in many languages and took different forms – boccale, pokal, бокал, – and different meanings, such as drinking glass. Now we are using it to describe a different kind of container. We will fill our Baucalis with stories about drinks. We will travel to places where they are created. We will talk to people who make them. Join us on our journey and take your baucalis with you. Surely, we will find something delicious to fill it with.
Each reviewed wine has two ratings: quality and value for money.
