We all know I love wine. But I think it is very important to remember and recognize the people who make the wine. It’s those people who make the decisions and take care of the grapes that eventually becomes the wine we drink.
One of my favorite things to do is to talk to the winemakers. Listen to their stories. Learn from them. Most of them love telling you about their wines and wine making in general. Often my winery visits are more about the kids and the dog than the wines. I can drink most of the wines at home but rarely get the chance to talk to the people who make it. It’s something I look forward too all year, my summer trip to Piemonte.
