Wine it’s simply crushed and fermented grapes. The variations and the stories are what make it so fascinating. I love that we talk about wine breathing…it is a reminder that wine is alive and changing.

Perhaps even more important than any of this is the story of the winery, the winemaker and the people who love these wines, their philosophies and the different ways they bring their reverence to the grape.

Life is better with WIne

Making wine and growing grapes can be done in many ways. Each vineyard, each winery, each winemaker may choose a different way, or a different mix of philosophies.
Here in “The Philosophies” we will explore the many and varied methods that vineyards and wineries use, which make so many wonderful and unique wines all over the globe.

The variations in wine are beyond comprehension. And the stories behind the wines are as lush and beautiful as the wines themselves.

Criss Crossing Wine Country and tasting Wine from many different regions, we are also learning what goes well with the wine along the way. Food & Wine are an integral symbiotic arrangement especially pairing local food with Local Wine.  This in some cases is what enhances the overall experience.
