Wine History

More than 6,000 years ago man began cultivating and fermenting grapes. The basic simple process of making wine breaks down to: grow, pick, and crush the grape. Then it is placed in a cask to ferment which means the yeast and the sugar react and make ethanol and carbon dioxide. Then the wine is placed in bottles to mature. Of course that all sounds very simple, but we left out all the details that make a fine wine. These details are grape Varity and its origin. You also must take in count what type of cask is used to ferment the wine in. Then of course is how long to age it, which is based on all the other details, some wines age better than others.

This was an abbreviated version of the Miracle of Wine. To learn more contact us for a wine tasting and wine class for you and your friends.
