from Dirt to Glass
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. The variations in wine are beyond comprehension. And the stories behind the wines are as lush and beautiful as the wines themselves. Our goal at Crushed Grape Chronicles is to explore and chronicle the grape and it’s many stories and it’s journey from dirt to glass. Join the Adventure!
From dirt to glass, learn all about the steps grapes take from getting from the vine to your glass. The history of the grapes, the growing seasons, harvest, fermentation, barreling, bottling, the long journey to your glass. We talk to the Wine makers about their stories and the journey from dirt to glass.
