How Do I Do It?
Select your vintner as you would any professional service. How much wining experience and product knowledge does the vintner have? Has the vintner competed in any international wine competitions? What wine making techniques are utilized?
What is the quality and variety of the raw materials. And this includes the quality of the water (especially if you are reconstituting a kit wine). The appearance of the winery: is it clean, organized and well stocked? Are you offered a winery tour? Are the staff friendly, informative and helpful? These are some of the criteria to be considered for a quality result: your finished wine.
Wine-making is not instant gratification!
Plan a wine strategy and build a wine portfolio that addresses special occasions and food experiences. The required time for maturation of your wines is one of the most important assets to a conscientious wine maker. Wine-making is a fun and sociable event. It’s a never ending learning experience and you can travel the world at your kitchen table with your friends and family. Salute! So develop your passion and become a vintner that loves…the fine art of wining!
