07 Sep The Life of Wine
Wine is just fermented grape juice, remember? Yet how does it sing to the soul? How does drinking a good wine make one so emotional until tears fall1?
To put it simply, the wine is a vehicle – one that transports and transfers the feelings and efforts of the wine maker, and that feelings of the land. The educated lot will know this as “terroir”. You see, wine is alive, and where and who it was raised and raised by makes a profound difference on how it turns out, much like a child. After it’s bottled, it’s still alive and continues to mature and develop.
When you open a bottle of wine, you are celebrating the efforts of the winemaker and the land, so always respect that. Never waste their efforts.
Yes I have seen that happened before.
