  • 2/7/09: *Please note, to further clarify, once the wine has been reduced, 1 cube measures approximately 2-3T = the equivalent of 1C - 1/2 C wine prior to wine reduction. Wine reduction results in the full flavor of the wine without having to go through the process each time your recipe requires wine.
