It was raining, and our hosts in at the Chateau La Tour-Martillac in Bordeaux kept apologizing for this; the demurs of visitors from drought-stricken California, that rain was a lovely sight, they seemed to view as courtesy more that verity.

There, amid the hectares of vineyards, vivid green against the stormy sky, were old vines. It only took a glance to see they were noble beings; their thick, gnarled trunks were badges of honor and achievement like the wrinkles on a grand dame. They had somehow survived the 19th-century phylloxera epidemic that decimated the vineyards of Europe, and they still bear fruit.
Wines To India Standing before these vines, ankle-deep in mud and clutching an umbrella, brought home not only the deep love — perhaps veneration — the French have for their vineyards, and but also the extent to which this is really where it all began, the quest to make, not just wine, but wines you taste and never forget.

Wine Club India I don’t think there is a delicate way of putting this, so I’m just going to come right out and say it: An American makes the best wines coming out of New Zealand. Californian Mike Weersing arrived in New Zealand in 1996 by way of enology school in Dijon, France, and several stints at some of France’s best wineries, including De Montille in Burgundy and Kreydenweiss in Alsace. In New Zealand, he initially went to work as the winemaker at Neudorf Vineyards in Nelson, and in 2000, he purchased an old farm in North Canterbury with his wife on the South Island.

addition of sulfites, wine (and grape juice, for that matter) would quickly turn to vinegar. Organic wines are not necessarily without sulfites, but often have lower levels which are closely regulated.

Biodynamic farmers strive to create a diverse, balanced ecosystem. They use preparations, or teas, made from fermented manure, minerals, and herbs like dandelions, nettles, and valerian to help restore and harmonize natural resources, while also improving the quality and flavor of the grapes.
