We enjoy wine. Even more, the experience of wine, the background of the winery, the decor they choose for their tasting room, the way they choose to welcome you. There are so many factors that go into a great wine, the grapes, the weather, the soil, the light, the choices… In addition, the spirit of the wine comes from the grower and the winemaker. Above all these things there is also the experience, the tone of the tasting room when you walk in. Does it really make the wine taste better? Yes…we emphatically say! You can pick up a bottle of wine anywhere. There are many places to pick up a “really good” bottle of wine, but I want more, I want to see where it came from, hear the story behind it, feel the passion of the winemaker, feel the passion for the wine. I want to look out onto the vines, and feel the truth of “terroir”. I work toward refining my palate and growing my appreciation and understanding of different varietals and blends. Crushed Grape Chronicles will promote the exploration and education of wine and new places and new regions. It’s a great adventure, and we would love for you to join us.
